Andy Skinner.....

Morning fellow crafty bloggers, hope you all had a lovely weekend. I managed to go a class on Saturday which was taught by Andy Skinner. I have never really done anything totally grungy and without the addition of some sort of bling even if it's only Treasure Gold. It was a leisurely paced class and we put so many layers of paint, paste and glue. We made this small journal book which I made for my son, I did add the spinner and brad on to the top afterwards.......and there is no bling, although I nearly got my Treasure gold out but put it back. All of the paints we used are from Decoart, I've never used these before, but I was impressed with the rust effect, as well as using fluid acrylics we also used modelling paste, texture sand and gesso.

Have a great week

Back of book, which is stencilled with gesso onto a splattered rusty background, then topped off with a 
rusty wash and another layer of splatters.
