Retro Spark Plug Wall Hanging

Hi all, here's today's project.
I had a lot of fun making this wall hanging after I found an old spark plug a few weeks ago (when it still felt ok to pick up treasure from the kerb!).
 I used one of Andy's Tando Creative kits, along with lots of Creative Expression goodies!
Chalky finish paints on the small square... 
Gorgeous pastes on the large square canvas base...
Artists Pigment paints using Andy's usual rusty combination.
Transfers from the Retrology Transfer pack (love that set) added to the small squares. Holes punched for the wire wrapped spark plug.Then those squares glued onto the large base backing square using Andy's super strong glue.
And there you have it. Another piece of 'found treasure' added to my artwork.
For a more detailed tutorial of my processes for this project, check out my blog HERE.
Thanks for looking.
