Good morning my lovelies and a big warm welcome to my new followers, its a real pleasure to 'meet' you. Its Saturday so I'm hoping to have lots of time in my craft room but before I go and play here's my project for our new challenge at We Do Doobadoo and this time around our theme is 'Something Masculine'. As always you don't have to use Dutch Doobadoo products to join in and our lucky winner will receive some gorgeous Doobadoo goodies so I hope you're going to play along with us.
I've altered an MDF clock blank for my DT project. You may notice that it isn't a finished clock, that's because I can't find any clock mechanisms anywhere, I'm sure there is a black hole in my craft room lol. Anyway I began with a coat of Maimeri Gesso, then added lots of texture with Maimeri Light Modelling Paste and some of my favourite Dutch Doobadoo stencils (I used Metal 2 and Barbed Wire). Once that was dry I glued on some of the Kraft Art Stars and Arrows. and then gave the whole thing a coat of black acrylic paint. I used Maimeri Acrylic paints in Deep Gold, Light Gold and Bronze (the bronze is my favourite colour ever, its gorgeous. I also blended in a little green here and there and then once it was dry I dry brushed black here and there too.
For the inside i used a piece of greyboard and primed with Maimeri White Gesso and added some more texture with a Dutch Doobadoo burlap stencil and more Light Modelling Paste. Next I added a coat of Platinim White Maimeri Acrylic, and mixed in some PanPastels. The stamps are all from Chocolate Baroque, stamped with Potting Soil Archival onto tissue, coloured with distress markers and attached to the project with Maimeri Mat Gel medium. The letters were die cuts, again painted with Maimeri acrylics. To finish off I've added some highlights with some Treasure Gold.
