Industrial patchwork framed heart for A Vintage Journey

Hi everyone. It is time for our June challenge at A Vintage Journey; this month our host is Astrid and we have a favourite theme: Stencil It.
I recently took another Andy Skinner class and we were using his various paint techniques to alter an MDF box - you can see my post here if you missed it.
I also used this style on an altered coffee tin last year:
As you can probably tell - I do like this style and although it is quite time consuming it is effective!!
So for our Stencil It challenge I challenged myself to use a stencil on each of my patchwork elements within the frame.

The base board (blue) is a combination of PaperArtsy grunge paste and Deco Art crackle paint - although I may have painted over most of the crackles!

My heart is MDF and is altered with a texture medium and then painted with red and brown colours.
The frame and cogs have been given the rust effect treatment with Deco Art paints - Quinacridone Gold, Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide and Paynes Grey.

Thanks for stopping by. Do head on over to A Vintage Journey for more stencilling inspiration!

  1. Each patchwork element is beautifully textured and coloured and provides a fabulous backdrop in the frame for that gorgeous central heart. A great way to apply the techniques and turn them into a brilliant composition xxx

  8. This is fantastic , Nikki . LOVE your patchwork elements both individually and when grouped together around the two opposite corners of your composition- so much texture and detail to catch the eye. Fabulous background and focal heart - both lush in colour and texture .
