I have been playing with some more of my mdf elements this weekend and, in particular, the cogs which are now in my Folksy store. I used them on my art board stand to create this:
I painted everything with black gesso and used my grid stencil with black texture paste on the mdf base. I then used a combination of acrylic paints and sprays in coppers, browns and greens to create the rusty metallic look on the base. Similarly with the cogs, I embossed them in a range of rusty looking powders to create a textured, weathered look and adhered to the mdf stand. I stamped and embossed in copper a few of the smaller moths from Visible Image and a sentiment in a green patina effect powder from Stamplorations. I also highlighted the letters in a few old metal eyelets and embossed them with the same powder.
I shall link up at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge where the challenge for March is to use a stencil and at least 3 mediums.
I will also link up at the Anything Mixed Media Challenge over at Mixed Media World.
Here are the cogs and stencil that I used from my Folksy store.
