Hi my friends
I was so  impatiently waiting to use  the new products of Andy Skinner .

Wooden panel 13 x18 cm
This project consists  of four levels
 1rst level-the wooden panel

I applied a layer of strata paste.It dries quickly.With the compination of acrylic colors i made the rusty effect on the panel.[paynes grey -transparent  yellow iron oxide-cobalt turquise hue-guinacridone gold].I also used chipboard elements and colored them to seem rusty screws.

2nd level
I  glued a book page on a piece of a chipboard.[little bit smaller than the page].
 I used the stencil 'Barbed wire' twice.In the first wire i put modelling paste and then embossing powder[the combination of 3 colours].in the second wire i put acrylic paint.
Then i used the 'grunge wallpaper' stampe all over the page  and ''enigma'' stamp at the edges with archival inks.At the end i distressed the edges again with archival ink.

3rd and 4th level
Of course i will finish my project with my lovely air dry clay.
I rolled out a layer of clay and i made a square tile.I put from the ''earth without art'' stamp only the word ART and second the andy's stamps from the decoart series.After that i stamped on the clay layer the ''sugar skyll' stampand cut it out.I curved it a little and let the pieces of clay to dry.
When they dried i painted them firstly with a gesso and secondly with one coat of acrylic paint.i made the antiquing effect with oil colors.
The final touch.. I added some mixed media transfers from the Poe Diversity sheet 
I wrapped a part of  the clay skull with rusty wire.

  Focus on the present.. dream your future

many kisses
