A shabby, grungy wall plaque, using the fabulous Craft Parts of course.
I started with an 8 x 8" (200mm x 200mm )sized Mixed Media Grey Board to which I attached a piece of corrugated card.
These boards have become my favourite substrates as they are so sturdy and can withstand any amount of media thrown at them.
I covered the card with Gesso and when that had dried applied crackle paste with a palette knife.
Colour was added with various acrylic paints but I left the centre as that was going to be covered anyway.
Next I selected my chosen Craft Parts and altered them to suite my project.
Here you can see some of them: I used a couple of Heartshaped Keys, made to look rusty with the help of Sand Paste and acrylic paints, some wings from the Wings Style 1 and a crown from the Wood Crowns Style 2. I gave them a patina colour with the help of a Gelato. I also used the word Dream from the Ancestry Style Word Font.
Next I created a small plaque to form the focal point for my project. and adhered my chosen Craft Parts to that.
I adhered the smaller panel onto the larger one with foam tape and then added 4 of the gorgeous Fleur de Lis Corner Wood Shapes to finish my project:
Here are a few close ups still:
Subtle crackle was added for a shabby look.
A few little pearls were added to the crown.
And here the final plaque.
I love how these Craft Parts can be altered in so many different ways, or indeed be left just as they come as I have done with the corner flourishes.
Thank you for visiting like always and I hope you like my project.
Have a fantastic week
