Lisa Somerville gave us the creative experiment to design with material designated for recycling.. As crafters we tend to inhabit other's domains...like hubby's work bench. I kept mine simple, I save pieces of corrugated cardboard and old leather..You can see what other Blogger Players created by clicking HERE.
This altered piece is going to be a book cover for one of the little fellas in our family.
The little piece on the side is Faux Distress Paper...one of Technique Junkies techniques.
My first application of mediums to the cardboard was Gesso and then Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Chalk Board Sprays. Next I applied Ranger Crackle Paints: Antique, Bronze and Broken China. A few swipes of Tim Holtz Distress inks to finish my piece: Wild Honey, Peeled Paint, and Rusty Hinge. I heat set each of these applications with a Heat Gun.
The blue scallop is from Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix Line " On the Edge " border diecut called Scallops.
My journaling on the side...is my favorite product: Tim Holtz Ideology Film Strip...love this stuff. I added the EK Success Label Lingo stickers inside the film strip.
The two epoxy sticker on the main image are from K & Co " Life's Journey".

The cute little colt image is from Impression Obession...Melissa gordon line called Foal - K7008

I stamped the image on Glossy White Cardstock with Ranger Archival Black ink and then heat set the ink.
For the sunset background I used Tim Holtz Distress inks: Tumbled Glass, Wild Honey, Peeled paint, Crushed Olive, Victorian Velvet.
