Rich colors and rusting the Past

        Wow- can you believe it is the 30th of October today?! 

                    Time flies-and Rust never sleeps...





Recently , I pulled out some  journals and decided it was time to fill in the unused pages-

 















 

 The first couple of steps consisted of tearing ,cutting and adhering clock faced paper with Decou-Page Matte sealer-I saved a few of the faces for later. I did some stamping on another sheet as well- The Muse of Future Past and Domino Shrine stamps are both from Lost Coast Designs
and the I Will Soar ,wing stamp, is Pam Carriker's

Next I applied a coat of Americana Muted Gold along with glazing medium-keeping the color heavy in some areas
 Now for my colors- all which were mixed with glazing medium.
White, Paynes gray, Phthalo Blue(Red shade) Quin,Magenta and Americana Dark Scarlet

 

Next I used modeling paste mixed with the Muted Gold along with
 stencils from Seth Apter- Urban from his new series and his Past Present Future

 After the paste had dried , I applied DecoArt Worn Penny using my finger to the raised areas of modeling paste, giving these areas a rusted look. At this point I also used the Dark Scarlet  along the right and bottom edges.
 Next, a wash of Quinacridone Nickle Azo Gold was applied to the page.

Time to add my stamped images which I colored  using Distress Markers- apparently- I forgot photos!  As you can see in the photo above, I stamped 2 shrine arches,one lighter than the other and layered them off center. The muse was added on top of these. For the wings,which I added the clock face to; I decided painting them white would give a nice contrast to the overall page. 
And then to finish, I added some outlining and shading. 

  Truly the colors are much more rich in person, but after about 30 photos, I just picked the best of the lot! 

Thanks for your visit-and are you dressing up for Halloween?
bwaaaaaa hahhahaaaa! 
I am- i'm going as a cool art chick! teeheehee

I apologize Jackie for not seeing this post sooner. Just sent you an email asking if you've used Americana paint...I should've known you had that in your stash too. (ha ha) And I was wondering how you got Seth's stencils so fast...he had them for sale at the retreat didn't he? I have all of his stencils and need to get these too. You do such a fine job of posting the "how to" steps for your work.I adore RUST so this piece talks to me. Cheers-Darlene
