Hugs from Dorthe, xx

Using one of the fantastic  white greyboards as background , I first covered the white side of the greyboard, with gesso, and when dry stenciled one of my favorite stencils : The big flower , using texture paste .

When totally dry I started adding colors and pastes to the whole surface, painting some of them onto both stenciled areas , and the flat areas I left like that to add an image and other pieces .
I played with the Pastes from Pentart , and the Decoart   Media fluid Acrylics, to try to achieve the look of Rusted areas, in different stages, all over the surface, and in few places adhered sand from the beach, to show texture in the rust ,--when dry it was painted too. You can easily see it above in the photo.
I stamped the wonderful face onto tissue paper, using the Archival Ink Coffee, and adhered her to the panel, with Matte Medium . I then cut off a piece of Tyvek and draw an oval circle in the middle of the paper, which I cut out. Using my heat gun I now tried to make a frame for the face,  attacked from tear and rust, and when satisfied I painted it over also with the different pastes, and paint .

The same treatment of paste and paint , I gave the embellishments : cogs and clocks , a clips ,and two pieces of old lace from my stasch.
It was adhered with the great Multi Purpose Craft Adhesive.
The last thing to do was make a hole with my Crop-A-Dile  and put through a lovely piece of brown Sari Silk.

That's such a different look for you, but you have risen to the challenge perfectly. Your grungy, rusted textures are amazing, and I love the hints of verdigris... and of course the vintage image at the heart of it is perfect.
