This post was hiding in my list so seeing as crafty pieces are not being made as yet I thought I'd post this now!
I managed to join in with the Key theme over at The Artist Trading Club in November here is the one I made (again I made 5 all the same).
I cut out the keyhole shape from some thin chipboard and dragged some terra cotta Adirondack dimensional acrylic on and left to dry then got some gold paste used to touch up picture frames and rubbed a little over....the rather dour lady is an ancestor of mine...afraid I'm not certain who she was...possibly a great great aunt...unfortunately I have no way of finding out since my mother died....
I'd have loved to use some of those T!m type metal key letters but needs must and I made them by stamping Paperartsy letters and blobbing some white dimensional pearls over......the metal bit was stamped with a Paperartsy border onto nearly the last of the tomato paste tube that Laura gave me.....I'm waiting patiently to use up the dregs from mine so I can have some more!!!...the same border was stamped directly onto the card at the top.......the background is some gorgeous paper from Provo Craft.
Here are the fantastic four I received in the swap.
Thanks for looking.
