March challenge - Rhedd's Creative Spirit

Morning all!

It's the first of the month again, which means I get to share a couple more altered art projects with you!
this time I will start with my project for Rhedd's Creative Spirit, where as always, Anything altered art goes. (mixed media is good too, but no paper items please!)

I decided to play with a dimensional MDF ATC from Fernli Designs


The image is out of a book that came into the shop... It contains pictures of thousands of postcards, from really old vintage 1800's ones, through to more modern. The picture I used is of Commander Scott of the Royal Navy from 1901.



 I used several gears from the January Craft Box, and some other charms I had in my stash. The frame was a Docrafts one I didn't like much, so I painted it along with the rest.


The ATC has some texture, applied with a TH stencil and some black Dreamweaver texture paste, before I applied a coat of Ground Espresso Distress Paint. Then the ATC and the frame were highlighted with some antique gold Rub N Buff.

That's it from me... I hope you'll come play with us this month!

Back in a minute with post #2!

Your layering is fabulous as is your use of brass. A subtle reference to this gentleman's career. Oh I just saw the seahorse - your clever woman!
