Mixed Media World - Masculine/Father's Day





Hello everyone,

Time for a new challenge over at Mixed Media World and it's little old me thats chosen the theme this time: Masculine/Father's Day.


For this challenge, we are thrilled to announce that





are offering the winner a £20 voucher! Although I love being on DTs' I do miss out on some fab prizes...make sure you don't ;)

You can make anything Mixed Media, if you are unsure what that actually is, have a read of our guidelines on the MMW blog.

For this challenge, I went down the Steampunk route as I consider that quite masculine. This was done on Paperartsy Greyboard which can cope with anything you sling at it.








I am entering this into the following challenges:


Anything but Cute, Make it Masculine

Simply Create Too, Masculine

Sandee & Amelie's Steampunk , The Ravages of Time

Stamping Sensations, Dies and Punches





Fresco paints and crackle glaze, Decoart Quin Gold paint ( rust in a bottle, love it), Distress paints, Dylusions Coffee spray, Art Journey stamp ( handsome chap, isn't he), X Cut cog die cuts, Cheery Lynn barbed wire die cut, rusty wire and various bits of pieces of Tim Holtz stuff and some mechanical looking cut outs. 
The lightbulb top was rusted using rusting powder, the bulb was coated with a yellow alcohol ink and then a layer of crackle accents applied to it.


Please pop on over to see what my teamies have made, bet it'll be good!


Hope you like it
