Rusty Weathered Vintage

Hello Friends ,

I am sharing a Mixed Media Journal Page with you today.

For the base I stuck bits of Papericious paper randomly ( horizontally and vertically ) . Then gave a good coat of Gesso , next layer was Acrylic Color : Magenta . Once the colour dried up ,I used Deco art White Crackle paste. 

Then I was stuck with how I should proceed, because I had this rusty metal chip with me . Where did I find it ?? Guess !! Yes .from a construction site where they were downloading metal rods that day .. I pick scraps from everywhere around.( It irritates my husband a lot though )..

I wanted to make this Rustic element as the focal image.

I picked up piece of corrugated cardboard . Coloured it with Burnt Sienna . This became the base on which the Rustic metal piece would sit .. Rest of the elements placed around accentuated the rustic look.Gave a wash of blue and brown around. 

Call me Old Fashioned .But I love anything Rusty , Chipped , Weathered and Vintage ..

Its very true about me .. I journalled it below :) 

Enjoyed thoroughly creating this page :)

Few Close ups of the page 

Hope to see you guys soon in my next post ..
