Using a couple of clearanced wooden letters from my local craft store allowed me to go crazy with all my products from Art Anthology.
Loaded with wonderful unexpected objects and textures provided my imagination to be unleashed.
Many of the embellies were handmade from paper clay, such as heart, wings, knobs and clock. The textures were achieved using my glue gun, seed beads, floral rocks, cheese cloth and crafting sand.
Gears were diecut from grungeboard and then loaded down with sand, paint, and inks. The rivets were created using my glue gun and then topped with beautiful metal effects silver paint by Art Anthology.
Stenciled textured paste, seed beads and more hot glue art provided more interest and texture to my piece.
And well, the aged patina'd effect that I was able to achieve with the use of Art Anthology's Dimensional paints was wonderful. I hope you have been inspired to use the abnormal, unusual to provide a bit more interest to your projects. Wishing you hearts and flowers this month of love. xoxo Toni
