I am proud to say that every piece of work that is framed in my house is work that I have done, yes, mainly cross stitch that I have done years ago, a couple of paintings that I am quite proud of, a painting that my Grandchild did, oh and one from Cuba that is a fantastic impasto painting of Che Guevara). So for this months in the home" challenge I have painted a ...erm....its not a frame, it is the part that goes inside the frame to frame your artwork, but my mind has gone blank as to what it is called, is it the apperture?.
Anyway, I started by painting it silver, then stamped and embossed the GEARS BACKGROUND in places,
I then added some rust effect with paints and grit paste, I mean...who doesn't love a bit of rust!!
