Hello there! How are you? Good I hope! Its time for a new challenge over at stamps and stencils and this month its my theme - I chose metallics - and this is my brief ....
This month I would like you to make a piece involving metallics in some way - it could be metallic paints, rusted metal techniques, actual bits of metal, metal foil ....the possibilities are endless - also please use stamps and/or stencils. Have fun!
With this in mind this is what I made ...
My canvas involved the use of a few metallic elements and also I used a stencil.
I started by covering polystyrene stars with strips of alumnium tape that I bought on a roll in B and Q, it was around £3.99 for the roll. Its sticky backed which makes it easy to use.
Here's one finished star - the overlaping is fine - its part of the design.
Once the stars were covered I used a ball point pen to punch holes into the edges of the aluminium strips all over the stars. I think it gives them lots of texture and interest.
Next I took an A4 canvas board and used distress oxides to create a background...on top of that I also splattered lots more distress oxide and also some gesso.
To complete the piece I added some stencilled stars, some metal stars, the three large stars and some words.
Lucy is now the proud ownder of my canvas - she liked it so much I said she could have it.
