VINTAGE GRUNGE and RUST


Hi there my friends 
here I am again showcasing an art journal page with you .
I have my mojo back and I had such fun with this piece .

I love old Vintage photographs and I found this one 
of an old rusty car full of memories and intrigue ..

I wonder what this car would say if it could talk ??


GRUNGE ART JOURNAL PAGE 

MY BACKGROUND IS CREATED WITH 
texture paste, fabric and ink ..
no particular technique just splash it on and have a play with the palette knife  


Dusty Attic chipboard layered, inked with Tim Holtz inks
black soot, weathered wood, ripe persimmon and rusty hinge ..

 and finally I applied glossy accents . 








thanks so much for looking at my blog 
have a play with your texture paste and inks and see what 
you come up with 
it is fun .
big hugz and love to you all
bye for now and see you all again soon xoxo
