Dreaming in Rust

Hello Friends!
Our superbly talented Marta created a new art project that will take your breath away - yet again. :)
This is just a perfect combination of delicate color accents and rough Rust Paste textures.
And there's a video as well so you too can try out Martha's inspiring ideas - we hope you will!
Hello there! For my first Creative Team project in 2017, I've prepared for you a mixed media journal cover - a new year, a new journal just waiting to be filled. :)

My cover is a combination of romantic, vintage and a bit messy as I just love to mix different styles, textures and colors!
When I got Finnabair Mixed Media Journal into my hands, I had thousands of ideas running in my mind... How to decorate the cover to make it really mine?
I've decided to use some nice metal embellishments - and I decided I wanted them all to be rusty. That's why I chose some rusty Mechanicals Gears and Washers, they have such beautiful colors and texture...

To top the whole look and make it even more of a rusty heaven, I decided to add some Rust Effect Paste to make my journal look like a really old, rusty junkyard finding.
Does it look convincing to you? ;)
To add a touch of elegance and to break the rusty look a little, I decided to incorporate some blue and gold accents.
To do that, I used blue Lindy's Stamp Gang spray and some gold Art Alchemy paint.
I also used the gold paint to stamp some patterns and blue embossing powder to create some interesting accents in the background.

When you watch my video tutorial below, you will quickly spot that part of my cover creations are... Finnabair's stamps packages.
I simply can't help it - I just love their colors, rounded corners, and thin black frame.  :)

Enjoy my step by step video tutorial!

I hope you like rusty elements as much as I do - thanks to Rust Effect Paste we can add some rust in a clean and fast way. :)

Happy creating!
