Ordinary Day.... by Cathy

Hello friends! We are continuing our year of song themes, and our March Dare is to challenge you to create a project that is inspired by an Ordinary Day, or maybe even your Best or Worst day!

Click the link below to listen to the song that inspired this challenge.

Hello everyone! I have to tell you, this month's theme had me a little stumped - Ordinary Day.  Of course, we all like to think an ordinary day is just creating beautiful things all the time. This canvas started out purple and had crackle that didn't crack - it was a mess! So I took a bad idea and turned it into a grungy work of art! I guess it turned out to be an 'ordinary day' in the life of a mixed media artist!

I first covered the canvas with a scrap of paper bag that had a neat, vintage newspaper print printed on it. Then, I just started adding to it!

I tore a piece of beige tissue paper and applied olive oil to make it transparent (that's how I make my own vellum!) - it's on the right side and under my 50s girl. There's also a little tulle and some shredded cardboard from packing material on the side.

Black ink really adds to the grungy look. And Seth's Beeswax, Patina, and Rust powders take it over the top! These little plastic boxes are great for trinkets and take the embossing powders well! Just be sure to move your heat gun around or it might start melting. But that could look cool, too! And wire and rusty metal is always a plus!

Thanks for stopping by the blog here at Emerald Creek! I hope you'll play along with us and do some shopping - we DARE you!
