I am so excited to share my latest project with ya'll! It was totally inspired by the Creative Carte Blanche challenge. The challenge is to use the 3 W's: Wood, Word, and Wild (an interpretive element).
I have wood panels that you can craft it. That's what I used for the base of this project. The wooden oval is about 7 inches tall and 5 inches across. I put gesso on it to prime it.
I used Wendy Vecchi's crackle texture paste and Tim Holtz's stripes stencil for the middle texture. The I used a mixture of Golden paints to create the background.
In this picture you can see that crackle and the gold paint. I started with the brown color and mixed red and brown and added that on top. Then I used the two different golds. I love the shimmer!
Here is the finished project: Wild Winston. This fella was the Law back in the day. They named him Wild Winston-but it was an ironic name. He wasn't very wild. He broke up gambling rings, sent trouble makers a packin' and recovered many a stolen horses and cows. He was mild mannered. And he was a man of God. Good ol' Wintson was a brave soul--his job was to keep the town safe. And that's just what he did. :)
I would like to submit Wild Winston into these challenges also:
