Andy Skinner's Time Mixed Media Challenge~Man Over Time


Thanks for coming by today!

I have a small canvas I made for the Andy Skinner Time Challenge this month to share right now.

The substrate started life as a dollar store 5x5x1 inch MDF open box with a funky picture on it. I covered the surface with some DecoArt Media gesso and let dry. Next I used some Americana DecouPage Napkin medium to attach a skull pattern napkin.

Next I built up the layers with some DecoArt Media Misters which I really love since they dry permanent.

I used Andy's stencil "Made to Measure" for my well dressed man. Along the bottom and sides are other parts of the same stencil. I used DecoArt Media Black Modeling Paste. I stamped my man-body with a fabulous stamp by Rubber Dance Stamps onto an index card and used Vintage Photo Distress Ink on it and the sentiment.

I highlighted the dry paste stenciled parts and edges with some Rose Gold Metallic Lustre. Once dry it needed more texture so I added some DecoArt Media Crackle Glaze for some shiny bits and texture. I dripped, dabbed and spattered various colors over the surface and cracks.

Hope you like my Man Over Time canvas, it was lots of fun to just play!
