A Lust For Rust
I just love combining unexpected mediums and texture to my work it gives it that "element of surprise"
But, first things first! step one is finding an old door, something nice and solid. We then simply split it down the middle and supported it on the back.
Next step, I chose a medium turquoise paint (I used my own chalk paint for this project) then I applied a light fresh white tone in layers using the "dragging" method. Add layers until it is covered with slight peeks of color coming thru in various places. You can also use a putty knife to scrape away some of the layers as well if you wish.
I initially had scrap wood pieces in the missing glass panes and was thinking of a paint texture or painted art detail to add but I just wasn't loving it-it was missing that "wow"...so I started fumbling through all my "extras" hanging around the house.
