New challenge for Country View Crafts

Hello everyone, it’s been a while. I took a break to give myself some time to settle into my new home and just play for myself. Sometimes I find creating for a deadline can affect my creativity so its good to just play for yourself at times. Anyway I’m back with my inspiration for this month’s theme over at Country Views Crafts which is the on trend Artist Trading Coins. Yes they are everywhere!

So to be in with a chance of winning £20 to spend in the shop let’s see what you come up with.

My large tag

 Created a crackle background with weather wood and tinting base from DecoArt 

Then coloured the crackle with Distress Oxides from Ranger

I painted the Coins with the tinting base and applied the same colours of Oxide

I edged the Coins and tag with gold paint. Then built my layers, first old teabags then the coins.

To finish I die cut some flowers from Tim Holts Wild flowers and used the Oxides for colour. I used old book page from Rubber Dance 
To add more interest.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial 
I cannot wait to see what you create 
Take care
