Journey – Michelle Van Oudtshoorn

 Hi there!

So excited to be able to play with the new industrial chippies that Dusty Attic have released. There are so many lovely pieces, I didn’t know which one to pick first. I eventually did settle on the Marine Mechanical Large Seahorse (DA3359) And then there were several Industrial clusters to choose from!  

I went with creating a canvas. This was covered with a Stamperia rice paper, and then I added some crackle paste, once dry and crackled, I brushed over the cracks with a teal acrylic paint so that the paint would seep into the cracks. I then stamped over the canvas with an archival ink. All the chipboard pieces were covered with white gesso before adding paints and stains.

I first added the industrial clusters under the seahorse – these were Industrial Cluster #9 (DA3381), Industrial Cluster #3 (DA3375) and Broken Bits #12 (DA3370). Industrial Cluster #1 (DA3373) is placed at the top left corner. Using mini cogs DA3363, I added dimension to the industrial clusters and the Seahorse, by adding additional cogs. I have also used some mini screw heads (DA2879).

The title is from an older range – Blueprint wordpack (DA2225), still one of my favourite and perfect with the new industrial release.

I have used a mixture of Prima Alchemy Metallique paints and Tim Holtz Stains to colour my chipboard.

These are the products I have used:
