Be Different

I created something just for fun today and I really enjoyed the process.
Sometimes its wonderful to just create because you want to create and no other reason and this piece is the result of a couple of hours of just going with the flow.
I am a great love of clay faces and I knew I wanted to incorporate one in this piece and this is using one of my favourite moulds.
I found some tacks in my stash and I really enjoyed hammering them into my canvas and they add such a fun element to my design. I love using items that are a litte quirky.
With the tacks in place I had to wrap some cotton around for added texture along with some soft silver wire behind my face, adding cheesecloth for further interest.
I added Mint Green Paste over an AALL&Create stencil and added a wash of Distress Paints once the paste was completely dry to age a little.
Before applying any of my elements I added a coat of Vintage Photo Distress Paint to my canvas, giving the perfect aged backdrop for my design.

I really enjoyed being a little different today!
