Step Outside your box Saturdays-Rusty Things


So I am a day late!

More fun with the black gesso today.............I love that stuff!!! I loved layering acrylics over it and scratching through it. I also added some Caran D'ache crayons and there's some graphite on there-something else that I love to use now :)

Today I was drawn to this photo of a door. Its from a collage sheet I have had for years, from Lost Art Chix. I found a quote to go with it that I loved, and I applied a rusty key so it fit perfect for the Saturday Challenge!

More than anything I am SO enjoying playing in my art journal. Just trying new things, and playing...........Its more addicting than I imagined :)

This piece really works wonderfully, and I appreciate that you have shared such a large image of it. I liked being able to see up close and enjoy the details of it.
