Last week I bought some new goodies from LaBlanche shop.
They also had lots of special offers, including these large
door hanger sets made out of chipboard, which
only cost 1€ each, so I stocked up on several different ones
at that price. I gave it a base coat of cream coloured
acrylic paint, used structure paste through my diamond
stencil to give some texture, and then collaged various
bits and bobs of napkins. The man, I'm calling him
Sir Jasper, was given an extra coat of brown paint. I added
the diamond shaped rub ons and then crackled him
with Deco Art crackle. When it was all dry I rubbed
some soft gold paint into the cracks, round the edges, and
onto the hanger itself. Then I added the
decorations, some of which were rusted with the
wonderful iron powder and oxidation mixture I showed in
my last post. The suitcases are a chipboard sticker which
was gifted me, I roughened the edges and then rubbed some
gold into them. And there's a story to go with it:
Sir Jasper is a kind gentleman, but has always
been extremely forgetful, and has a bad habit
of being late. His mother bought him
an XL pocket watch to hang from his lapel so he
he at least always knows the time. He needs to catch
a train to London in 2 hours time, and is searching
for the key to open the safe, which contains some valuables
he must take with him. Unfortunately he cannot remember
where he hung the key. Will he remember in time to
finish packing and catch the train?
What do you think?

For Rosie's challenge at Art Journal Journey I did some
digital playing and came up with this fun piece:
At the end of our road the town gardeners have once again
planted a wild flower mix on the little patches of earth
where the roads meet, and they make a lovely sight:
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
