Challenge project .... D

Hi all

It has been a while since making a project for the Outlawz, Paper ala Mode due to being so darn busy with grandchildren.  Has been great though!

There are no longer any themes. From now on it will always be ANYTHING GOES

I chose to make a door sign for my craft room and I was lucky enough to have a wooden plaque from Crafty-Emblies laying on my table screaming at me to alter it lol.  

I embossed tin foil using a bark folder.  Made the tin foil really delicate so had to be real careful adhering it to the plaque.  Once dried off I used black acrylic paint over the top and wiped away to make it look more realistic and aged.  

I used quite a few emblies and gave them the treatment of TH distress embossing powder to give them the rusted metal look.  A tiny piece of chain was then added.  I found some chipboard letters in my drawer, I painted and embossed them.    I found an old lock in my toolbox and decided to use it to symbolize the locking of the door lol.  The flower is made from metal foil, embossed and cut from a Paper Artsy die.

I do hope you have enjoyed your visit and I also hope you join in with us over at the Outlawz, which is now an ANYTHING GOES challenge blog. I would also like to inform you that Crafty-Emblies is now an ANYTHING GOES challenge blog.  You now have more challenges in which to enter your fabulous creations.  I hope to see your masterpieces posted in both.
