Welcome to another mixed media project for Andy Skinner. This is a mini album I made for Andy. We always have such a great time when we get together with Andy, either its jumping the pond or here on our turf. And I think it is great how much love of life is in the air when Andy is around. I love the books from Tando. This was a little bit of grunge and a lot of texture. I will spare you the inside photos. (Some could be used for blackmail, lol). They will come out when least expected.
There is always a lot of blending and texture when I work on Andy's projects. I enjoy getting lost in the pigments and the brush strokes.
Using various elements from the industrial elements set and Di's textured shapes, I did layered the background up with all of my favourite crackle and rust. Between the gears which is very Andy and the heart which is really how we all feel about him, I wanted something that came from the heart.
Between the texture glaze and crackle paint, I love the aged, vintage look the book took. And you can never go wrong with Quinn Gold and Payne's Grey for some shading.
I wanted a closure that was Andy, Using rusty wire and a nut and bolt from the Industrial Elements Set, I finagled it to work. It just adds to the project.
I will give you a little sneak peak of some of the blackmail material I have of Andy. Until the next Andy adventure. Thank you for stopping by.
