Secrets of the Sea - November Bleeding Art Challenge



Hi Crafty Friends! Today starts a new challenge month at the Bleeding Art Challenge Blog. As always it is an Anything Goes mixed media challenge. My Design Team inspiration creation for this month is a steampunk inspired artist trading coin entitled Secrets of the Sea.




That old adage something old is new again totally applies to the media used for this creation. I went into my stash and used old Tim Holtz Emboss Powders that are matte with crystals that you scrap off to give it a distressed weathered look. I used the Vintage Photo and Brushed Corduroy ones on the Creative Embellishments Steampunk Artist Trading Coins chipboard piece. I added some Seth Apter Baked Textures Patina Oxides embossing powder to in a few areas to give it an oxidized look for interest and dimension. Next, I adhered it a piece of Stamperia Mechanical Sea patterned paper. Once dry, I cut it out, sanded the sides and darkened them with a dark brown Sharpie Marker. After I fussy cut coral from the patterned paper, I added shell bits and the coral. Lastly, I adhered the Secrets metal chain band.




Head on over to the Bleeding Art Challenge Blog here to see my fellow DTs' inspirational pieces and get details on entering the challenge.

TTFN,
