Things to Alter July Friends Layout

                                                                         Hi all

             I have a mixed media layout to show you for this months Things to Alter DT project. The challenge is anything goes and you don't have to use Things to Alter products to join we also have a Facebook group here

I have been experimenting with powdered inks and then discovered the Ken Oliver colour burst powders which are a lot cleaner to use as you just shake the powder out the bottle. 

I created the background by spritzing it with water and sprinkling Brusho powder on to it. I then spritzed it with more water to diffuse the colour. Once the Ultramarine had dried i then added a layer of Purple . I used the Grunge ATC stamps by Lost Coast Designs to and a layer of stamping to the background. 

I used one of the MDF Geoclusters frames and coated it in gesso before painting with crackle paste.
I then dyed it with the leftover ink. I used the 1/2 inch alphabet to create the title which i painted with Ken Oliver Liquid Metals Copper ink

The stamp set is the Travel Stuff set by Lost Coast Designs which i stamped on to smooth card and inked using Ken Oliver Sepia Colour Burst Powder. I used the Copper Liquid Metals to paint the Penny Farthing

The photo is of my Nan and her friend at the seaside.

I used the powdered inks to colour white paper flowers so that they always match my project.

Thank you for visiting
