Destination Inspiration at A Vintage Journey - Faux Rusted Metal Effects

Hi everyone and welcome. It's been a busy few days (again) putting together tutorials, demo'ing on Saturday near Congleton (such a fantastic place and what a group of the loveliest people!) and working on projects for publication. So time has flown and I realised that the winners of the ATC draw needed announcing. I'd had 45 wonderful comments (with a few double entries) by close of play last Thursday evening, so, using Random.org the winners chosen were...

#11 Rosie , #21 Julia, #39 Sara, and #26 Bonnie!!!!!!!!!!
Please email me at buttonscraft@btinternet.com with your contact details and your ATC will be winging it's way to each of you.
Thank you everyone for taking part in my little giveaway.

Now for today's offering... I'm hosting the next Destination Inspiration over at A Vintage Journey and have chosen to tackle the creation of a couple of rusted metal effects using Distress Paints. 


Here's a card I've made using one of them, but you'll have to skip on over to A Vintage Journey for the 'how to's' and close ups.
Looking forward to seeing you there.

Have a great week and take care of yourselves. Jenny xxx

  11. Hi Jenny, me again. I hopped over to see the tutorial, thank you so much for this. Once I have all the supplies I WILL give this a try I love it a lot, it's really great. One question: surgical alcohol or rubbing alcohol I wouldn't know how to translate this didn't find it in the dictionnary either but is it plain alcohol one uses for medical purposes ? The one you can buy in the pharmacy ?

  12. I loved this the other day on Facebook and cant remember now whether I commented or not. Have I ever told you how much I LOVE RUST???? I have purposely soaked things in various rusting liquids like salt and weak acids to make rusty decorations for my house. This project of yours rusted all the right buttons for me. Thanks as well for coming by my blog and facebook to leave such lovely comments. I love it when you comment!

  29. Yippee! I'm so excited to win one of your ATC's! I love all this rust. I caught your tutorial over at The Vintage Journey, and I can't wait to give it a try. Right after I write 100 times on the blackboard "Jenny is spelled with a "Y"" for spelling your name with an ie in my e-mail to you. (sorry 'bout that!)
