*Home* Rusty Mixed Media Altered Plastic packaging from Finnabair

 Hey Crafty Friends I have another Mixed Media project to share!  I used plastic packaging from Finnabair's Vintage Trinkets,  I have a picture at the end of this post you can see!

I painted layers and layers of paint,  not only did I get a rusty effect but the paints created a nice texture!

I started out with a plastic packaging piece from Finnabair Mechanicals Vintage Trinkets and then added chipboard pieces from Scrapaholic Supply,  I also added metal embellishments from Finnabair,  mould pieces and a couple Prima Flowers.  Then I gave it all a good Black Gesso coat.
Next I started painting with Finnabair's Texture Fanasty pastes using Azul Real,  then I added Rust effects paste using Gold Rust and Red Rust.  I thought it wasn't enough so I kept adding the Azul Real then Red Rust.  After many many layers of these paints I finally told myself I needed to stop!  

I used an image from the Vintage Photobooths sticket pack and cut out an image to place on the wings mould.

In between the coats of paints I added grey embossing powder and heat embossed it,  I felt it was a little too much so I painted one more coat of the rust effects paste.

I also added some grey microbeads,  a few mechanical embellishments and an art pebble.  I painted the same colors of rust effects on the back of the art pebble and glued it down,  the color mixed and gives it a nice pop of color!

I think I'm addicted to using rust effects paints now!  LOL!!!   I LOVE lots of texture and it definitely gave alot of texture to my project!

As always I love joining this challenge it is so much FUN!!!
Hope you get a chance to see the inspiration and get busy creating!

Thanks for stopping by!
