"With the end of summer nearing, some of us have gotten a little rusty with our creating due to holidays and lazy days. For this challenge let's break out a rusty color palette in preparation for fall. Whether you take the challenge literally and use rusted metal a faux rust technique, or just the color in your vintage or shabby chic project - the choice is up to you! We can't wait to see your creativity in full swing!"
Please forgive the long post. I thought I would share some of my rusty techniques. Of course, you can always just look at the pretty pictures if you like. Notice the smaller photos? You can click on them for a closer look. I have links to most of the products used at the end of this post.
At the center of my canvas is a favorite die cut--Tim's butterfly, which I actually created first after seeing this on Pinterest. (I couldn't find a link to give the origin credit for the photo.) The rest of my canvas came together quite quickly after starting on my butterfly--rust spreads.
And finally, an appropriate Clippings sticker edged in Sepia archival ink to top it off.
I'm sharing with these challenges:
