It's the style

Hello all my crafty friends, I hope life is treating you well and you are finding time in your busy lives to get creative. I've struggled with no inspiration for a while since my move, but fortunately had a wonderful flow of creative energy over the Christmas holidays so got way ahead. So today I'm sharing my second make for the current Challenge at Country View Crafts.


I purchased a few plaques from a shop on the high street which often reduce their stuff to affordable prices suitable for alterations.

 I gave it a couple of coats if black Gesso

Arranged the elements and stuck into place, once dry I painted the whole thing with Paper Rust.

I built up the layers in places to add more texture 


The woman is from Sheena Douglas, I used Inktense Pencils to give her colour. To finish I added treasure gold to edges and over the cogs etc.

Last look!

Hope you like it 

Take care hugs xx



  1. Ohh, love this rusty piece, Debs! Paper Rust! Wow, another product I don't have! Looks fabulously realistic, and your image is stunning!

  2. Great rusty piece, Debs! Love the contrast between the beauty and the old rusty background!
