Hello Everyone and Welcome
Today we launch our latest challenge at A Vintage Journey
and I will be the host this time with the challenge theme
'For this challenge we would like to see some kind of 'precious metal' feature in your project. Think gold, silver, brass, copper aluminium, steel..... It could be in the form of embellishments, cardstock, gilding wax, foil, gold leaf, or rub- ons. Just remember to ensure you create in one of our preferred styles of vintage, shabby, mixed media, art journaling, industrial, timeworn or steampunk.'
I have created a 'Precious Metal' Mixed Media canvas for this challenge entitled
-kind of a visual creative 'note to self!'
As I will be sharing details of how I created my canvas on the Friday 19th July over at AVJ, I have just a brief account and a few photos to share with you today.
I featured a few different forms of 'precious metal' in my canvas:
Gold and silver metallic paint
to create layers of fabulous texture and detail.
Some metal ideology pieces: a philosophy tag and a piece of Vignette hardware,
a game spinner, metal ruler, typed token and a couple of long fasteners which embellish, enhance and provide the canvas's title.
There are also some touches of silver gilding wax
to accent some of the elements
and a 'weather rusted' metal piece of hardware that stars as the focal feature!
I think it may be a sink plug fitting of sorts? I found it on the street when I was clocking up some steps earlier this year, what I call my 'street swag/ boardwalk booty' and I think its just the perfect fit for my precious metal 'Simplify Life' canvas.
I hope I have offered some creative inspiration for our challenge. If you haven't already be sure to pop by A Vintage Journey
where there is a fabulous collection of inspiring 'Precious Metal' projects created by some of our Creative Guides and be sure to pop by AVJ on the 19th for my Tutorial post.
We hope you will join us in this challenge as we are really looking forward to seeing your creativity.
