Rust, rusted, rusty?

Bev, of the Three Muses has challenged us to use rust in some creative way this week. I have hardly played at 3M since I started college, and the summer season, so being ill this week has had its compensations for me! I found time this evening to do 3 things that I love:

1. add more elements to another mixed media/textile quiltie sandwich – ultimately to be cut up!!

2. add some flowers, leather and green stuff to an altered bamboo placemat project that I started last summer!! And…

3. create a collage in my LTS journal, using my favourite “rusty” colour – Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold.

Love is... Backordered 6 July 2010

Apart from getting paint all over my fingers and ink too, I had a lot of fun using a business stamp we’ve had gathering dust, for years. Hence the Love is… and then Backordered 6 Jul 2010!! It’s really cool for random phrasing…

Apart from the colour, the only thing that’s rustier in all this, is… ME!! I am promising myself some more frequent playtime once college is over, for sure. Then we’ll see just how rusty I really am… 😉

    Sorry you were ill, but glad it gave you time to make this amazing and truly gorgeous collage.

  7. Wonderfully creative, Rosie, and full of yummy color and detail. I have to say it’s a shame love is on backorder, though. Let’s hope the supply gets bumped up so there’s enough for everyone!!! (Clever little whimsical touch it was, though). Good work!

  8. Love this page! I have a thing for Nickel Azo Gold too. It just makes everything look great!
