Altered Rusted Triptych-by Lesley

Hey people. Lesley here with an altered triptych for you.

I opted to use one of the rounded arched ones, but there are other shapes available over in the shop.

I started by drawing round the three shapes onto patterned script paper and cutting out.
I then started to layer up the pieces, using ink, paint and stamps.

I used a stencil and crackle paint to give the pieces some more depth.

Rust embossing powder was used in patches. And I added liquid rust, allowing it to drip down the pieces.

I used some of the new art deco tulip pieces as centre pieces, embossing them in rust, a dark green and patina oxide colour.

Twine was attached around the large one using staples.
I then glued the pieces of card to the shaped wood.

I added wording from my stash, using a piece of corrugated card from packaging.

To finish, I added jump rings to hold the pieces together.

Thanks for reading,
