Hello everyone and happy October to you all. Like usual on the first of the month I have a couple of posts to share with you, so if you are here for the second time today, thank you for doing so.
At Our Creative Corner, the theme this month, chosen by the lovely and very talented Laura is "Go Rustic"
This is what Laura had to say about the challenge:
"I really love Autumn and find it very inspiring with all those textures and colours we see in nature right now. So I decided to bring those textures and colours into a challenge here and see all that rustic creativity at Our Creative Corner!
We want to see a huge variety of items, so make anything you like - but add some RUST!
Now you can take this Rust-ic creativity to any level you like - You can use just use some rusty autumnal colours or you can really go for it and work with gorgeous, rough textured, grungy, real or faux rust.
So.....How 'rusty' are you?"....
I decided to share a journal page using my beloved Autumnal colours and of course some rusted elements. There was no real plan to the page, it just evolved:
Acrylic paint in a variety of makes and colours, including Distress Paints in Rusty Hinge, some twinkling H20s and some Distress Stain in Walnut stain were definitely in there somewhere. I used baby wipes and kitchen roll, mopping up from my craft mat over various days, just adding more layers whenever I had paint left over that I did not want to go to waste.
Here are a few close ups still:
