Hi everyone.............I can't believe that tomorrow is the first day of October and before we known it Halloween, Guy Fawkes Night and Christmas will be upon us !!!! OMG I hear you say !!!!
You may also remember that earlier this year I left A Vintage Journey and my lovely crafty buddies, whom I missed so much............the good news............ I am now back with them and I am just so happy and clearly, so is my mojo !!!! YAY !!!!
I don't know if its ever happened to you but I had a craft room clean/clear out over the summer and once completed every time I went in to create I could not find what I wanted/lost my motivation and Mr Mojo clearly wasn't happy either !!!!
My mojo is clearly easing his way back and today I am joining in with my fabulous AVJ family and their Tag Friday post.
I was inspired by Andy Skinner, whom I saw on HOCHANDA a few weeks ago. I loved his rusting and aged techniques so made a purchase of Quinacridone Gold and Paynes Gray.
I had a few other paints i.e Raw Umber as I had participated in one of Andy's online workshops a few years ago.
Layering the Payne's fray and Quin Gold is fabulous and I shall be trying out more of Andy's techniques as I am a grungy style girl. I also loved the effect of the weathered wood and Antiquing Cream in Titanium White.
Above you can see variations of Andy's new stamps and below some numbers from one of his new stencils
The Livre Apothicaire is also a stamp of Andy Skinners, which I stamped on to tissue paper, splattered some Quinacrodone Red paint, added a spider and some grey spider webbing type fabric that I picked up in Wilko last year for a pound. The Skeleton was also purchased cheaply in a food superstore too !!!!
Thank You for dropping in and I hope I have inspired you to look out for some of Andy's future shows, products or techniques shared on You Tube.
