Awfully Big Art Adventure Week 7
This is my entry for The Awfully Big Art Adventure Week 6 .
This week it was to transform a wooden block of similar size to an atc.
Thank you to my cousin Tom who came to the rescue with a wooden block, and also to Linda who kindly popped one in the post as I thought I was going to have trouble obtaining one.
I really enjoyed making these, I covered them with Gesso, and then a couple of coats of Crackle paint. Once dried I rubbed them with gold wax and distress inks.
The gold wax smelled lovely. One my first one I added images of English Poets , with quotes and a verse, and stamped pencils on the top.
The second one had a large angelic image on the front and a shrine on the back and again small quotes and gems etc, and a couple of metal charms.
I put red felt on the bases so that i could stand them on any surface and they wouldnt damage anything. They are on my mantlepiece in my sitting room and I love them. I think I would like to make more to use as Christmas decorations.
Im sure I will make them for friends too. Thank you to Rosie and Linda for the Inspiration once again.
