In ruins ........ Literally

Hi Peeps
 
Here's one of Steve's Christmas presents, its taken over a week to do !!
 
Lots of drying overnights and hard work as its so big but it was worth it.
 
I've used lots of techniques, mainly following
tutorial but with a bit of tweaking thrown in
 
I can't tell you the main technique for the 'skin' as its not fair to Andy
but if you haven't done one of his tuts online you are seriously missing
out on some brilliant techniques and useful arty hints and tips.
 
 
I've taken an A4 2015 diary and created this
Its a really big surface to do in one hit but I really enjoyed it!
 
I've used
Deco Arts Media acrylics
Pebeo Studio acrylics
White, Black and Prussian Blue acrylic paints
Embossed card
Grunge paper
Tim Holtz Embossing folders and dies
Multi Matt Medium
Liquitex Modeling paste
Sand
Cogs Stencil
Bits from my stash
Front
 
Back

It was a real labour of love and I hope he likes it after all the work lol
 
Thanks for looking
Be good
