All Grungy at That's Crafty!

Time for a new challenge at That's Crafty! - and we are getting grungy. 
I have used a reverse canvas and began with some scraps on my desk - some hessian stars that were falling apart and some string - both secured to the canvas to create texture. Once dry I coated it all in black gesso. Dry brushing with white gesso highlighted the textured areas allowing me to emphasise with some blues and browns.

To build up the layers I took some corrugated cardboard and painted it before adding some mesh. Some painted coffee stirrers created the border. My heart came off a recycled project and I wrapped it in various yarns and strings.
My letters were computer printed, mounted for a bit more thickness and highlighted in blue before adding a little paint around the outside.

Getting angelic with Seth Apter!

Seth Apter dies and Tim Holtz Salvaged Dolls
Time for a new challenge today at That's Crafty! The theme is There must be an Angel.
You can interpret this anyway you wish. I decided to have a play with my Seth Apter dies in some little frames. For one frame I used the die cuts and for the other the negative space created by the die cut. Tim Holtz Salvaged Dolls fit perfectly inside too.
