New Challenge on Old New & Digital Too

Good evening everyone thanks for joining me today where I have posted not one but two posts.
                                       Over on ONDT it’s our Second Challenge,
                               Please Take our Badge
And the Lovely Sarah chose our Theme, which is Found Objects. Please visit my Teamies as there is some great Inspiration on the blog and if you need more why not visit our Pinterest page.
                                                My Project - All DecoArt Products
Old - For my project I used a 6x6 board which I have had for a long time. I thought it would be perfect for my project. I covered the board in Weather Wood from DecoArt and once dry I sprayed it with a Media Mist in Yellow Green.
 I loved how it crackled when dry. I added more Spray this time in Blue.
Next I added some Quinacridone Violet randomly over the board to add some different interest.
New – for the new part of my project I chose a heart which I had recently purchased and following Andy Skinner’s method, I aged the heart and then stamped on a sentiment.
I took a new key and covered it in Sand Paste and when dry coated it with Media Fluid in Black and then two coats of Quinacridone Gold, for the perfect rust look.
Digital - I took an old face creation and updated her by adding her to a word background. I did this on an App on my iPad called Wordfoto. I printed onto tissue paper and then added it to my background.
I found some old washer style thingy’s that would look fab as a contrast to the rust.
Then assembled all my bits. Ta Dah!  
That’s it for today, have fun over the weekend and I’ll see you again soon.
Sending love out to all you lovely crafters. Debs xxx
