Man in the Moon - Tutorial

Welcome everyone,

1. use a round canvas or cardboard
to see the corrugated board, remove the top layer with water

2.  primed with fluid acrylics silver metallics


 3. i used old leaves from christmas decoration
primed with white Gesso + spray with Mister carbon black

4. mask branches + Mister carbon black

5. Dusty attic chipboard fences + fluid acrylics silver metallics
6. cut out from an old photo (haunted castle)

7.  Tim Holtz stamp + ornate plate
Lastly, I highlighted all of the raised areas with gorgeous Metallic Lustre Silver Spark

here lives the man in the moon, I don't know if is sweet ;-) but
I love to use the typical grunge industrial style of Tim Holtz

Simon says stamp Monday Challenge - Love this technique
to use recycle materials: packaging material as corrugated cardboard + old deco leaves lines

Happy sunday friends!
