Faux Galvanized metal and rust

Hello and welcome to my page today.

My today's Plaid play is all about FAUX GALVANIZED METAL technique using chalk paints and then to give it a rusted finish using the Plaid texture paints in Dark rust and light rust.
I have upcycled a few items of this project and you can see it all in the video tutorial

Here is the entire family together!

It's so easy to do amazing faux techniques with chalk paints .

A closer look at the faux metal and rust look...

I hope you give this technique a try and do let me know your view on the same.

 Until my next creative journey,
Happy crafting and recycling.

wooden log or not????

Helllooo crafty peeps...
 It's the beginning of a new month and I am here to share with you my DT project for Rhedd's Creative Spirit for August'17. The theme as always is "anything goes", Mixed media or altered art.

As for me, I have up cycled a packaging carton this time and altered it using the faux palette wood technique. I have a video here for the technique..

Here is the packaging before the makeover!

Here is how it looks after the treatment...

I have made it into a table decor and candle holder.
It also has some hand made foamiran flowers which I am beginning to enjoy making!

The candles when lit , looks surreal...I love the warmth of the entire about you???

A closer look at the textures and am sure you will think this is a wood log!!!

 I hope you play along this month and showcase your works too and take the time to visit the blog to see what my team mates have in store.

Thanks for stopping by.
Until my next creative journey,
Happy crafting and recycling.
