Hi there! We have some awesome inspiration for you here on the blog today from Corrie Herriman…
Welcome to the first post for Visible Image from me for 2017 ! Back in December I bought a Verday Paint kit and I couldn’t wait to try it out. It comes with 4 acrylic paints; iron, copper, brass and bronze and a bottle of patina. I used the copper on my Monolith project.
Front of the Monolith. Love the copper with the blues and greens.

Close up of the texture and sentiment.
So, to make this, I started with a gessoed Monolith on which I glued some metal rings and some art stones. I then put on a coat of the copper paint. This has to dry and then I put on another coat and while this is wet I put on the patina. I love the blues and greens you get while it oxidises.
I then added some stamping to the back and heat embossed with copper embossing powder which happens to be exactly the same shade so it is only a texture I have added.
I coloured a piece of paper with blues and greens and stamped the sentiment, layered it on some black card stock and adhered to the back of my Monolith.
For the front I repeated the paint/patina steps until I was happy with the result. Next I stamped the moth on white card stock and coloured it, cut it out and adhered it to the Monolith. I used the same-ish blues and greens for the wings.
I think it turned out fab !
I used the following stamps and a Monolith of course..
