Happy friday, crafty friends (:o)
The Mirror Crack'd is a new mixed media / altered art style challenge blog.
The first theme is *Anything Goes* but no cards are allowed.
Sue from Scrumplescrunch (one of the DT members) wrote on her blog: Working with mixed media can be scary..... and this gave me the idea for my project
An altered Dino(saur) box
I started with a plain wood box. I've cut a Dino ( with two heads) apart and mounted the separate parts to the box with Apoxie Clay.
I painted a layer of gel medium and applied Decoart texture crackle
Next was a layer of black acrylic paint
More cracks and texture with Kroma Crackle and drybrushed everything with white acrylic paint
Started painting the heads....
...tail and feets next....
..and the rest of the box with layers of Decoart Artist Traditions Acrylic Paint
Well, looks a little bit like something Jurassic Park don't you think?
I hope you feel inspired to join the challenge at The Mirror Crack'd
Thanks for your appreciated comments
