Starting from the Same Place Big Reveal

Today's Big Reveal

It's exciting to be a part of this awesome group!

I was invited to take part in a challenge with a group of ladies from around the world. 
How could l say no!!

See all the craftiness HERE

This consisted of receiving a mixed bag of goodies and creating something using all the 'BITS'.

These ladies are so creative and l felt way out of my league at first, as l wanted to challenge myself and try something 'NEW'

However l ended up doing what l do, and that is scrapbooking. Instead of a layout on paper l made a canvas.

Here are the mystery elements l had to begin with

There was fabric, felt, a stencil, chipboard pieces, electrical resisters, resins and more.

This is what l finished up with 

Here are some closeups and my process

I used the stencil on the background of the canvas adding texture paste. Once dry l added inks and water to achieve the washy effect l was after.
Then l splashed black ink over the top. I added some stamping effects with a chipboard cog piece that l inked in black
The chipboard cog wheel l covered in orange sand texture paste, stuck the small resisters on top and added the string.
I also stenciled over the felt and once dry l cut it into strips and layered under my photo.

The paper with a word on it - l simply tore and inked the edges.
Another piece of fabric l frayed, this is under the top of my photo
The flower is a resin - l used a metallic paint and added seed beads.
The leaf was hand cut from some of the fabric
The resister was glued above the flower
There is also a chipboard cog - l covered in yellow sand paste
The view master disc is poking out from the bottom of my pic

Here is another small resin that l painted. Also included were some clear bubbles that l have stuck on the background.
