A rusty page I made for myself

I thought I would share a page of rust and white I made for myself. It will join all the beauties I have received from friends in our Color Round Robin and previously from our 6 X 6 Round Robin. I intend to make at least one more of these pages before the swap is over.


Side one of rust and white page I made using paper and handy wipe I rusted, along with wire and rusty lid. All sewn together on a white background. These pages are 8.5 X 11 inches, which is slightly larger than A4 found in most of Europe. Click to enlarge.



Side two started with various hand rusted papers I sewed together, two birds, a soar tag I got in a swap, a key, a nail file I rusted, an image of Leonardo's vitruvian man, and various ribbons.

I started with a large white envelope for the background. It's always fun when I unwrap a package of pages I've rusted. It's as much fun as Christmas day for me. And I seem to have surprised myself with all the color I added to the second side. It's certainly not what I started out making, but my art seldom is. Have a great day everyone.

It's almost a honey colour isn't it - bet you couldn't have got it that deep and even deliberately! Love the blue that has tinged the tin lid too.
