Here we are, the first of April! Another topic from Country View Crafts.......Rust! Yummy.
Just love this topic and had so much fun playing.
I decided to decorate the cover of a small 4X4 Watercolour pad. As you can see, the objects are a little random. I cut the buckles from a holder of a Throw that I bought at christmas, I knew that I wouldn't fasten it back up in it!
There is a car that was stranded in our sandpit, a metal Finnabair flower, and a few buttons.
I secured them down with some Prima Heavy Body Gel and left them to dry.
In order to help the rust to adhere to the objects, I brushed over them lightly with Matte Medium. While still wet, I sprinkled on my rusting powder and sprayed with vinegar.
I sprayed them several times until they dried with the desired finish.
To complete my book cover I added some words from TH Idea-ology Chitchat.
I also rusted some ribbon to tie onto the spirals.
I am really pleased with how my cover turned out. If you would like some more rusty ideas, then please visit the Country View Crafts blog and maybe enter the challenge to be in with a chance of winning the £20 to spend in the CVC shop.
