Hello friends, 

Vidhi here with you today.
I'm so happy to inspire you all with a tutorial inspired my moodboard. We have received some beautiful entries so far and expecting a lot more..
There is still a few days left to enter our challenge. Do enter to win a lot of prizes...
So, here is my project and I'm inspired by the left side pictures of the moodboard.

I made an  altered frame from an old wooden clock. The Light bulb is my focal point and I just loved it how it turned out...
Let begin with the procedure of how I created it...

Step 1: I removed all parts and dial of the watch first, just kept a wooden frame. After that, I did one whole on the frame to hang a bulb through a rope. I created a rough texture on the frame with stone effect paste and glued some cheesecloth on it.

Step 2: I applied black gesso to the entire frame as a base to prime the surface. Now its time to add elements on the frame. Placed some MDF chipboards, Prima moulds from clay here and there. When I am satisfied with the placement glued all the elements on the frame.

Step 3: After that again I gave a coat of black gesso on all the elements. Now it's ready to colour the frame. Used Finnabair's rust pastes to give a vintage and rustic look. I started with dark shades to the lighter shades to highlight the elements.

Step 4: When I loved the outcome of rust pastes on the elements I stopped and used the beautiful Vintage Gold shade of  Wax from Finnabair to highlight my elements. They gave a perfect shine to the mix media projects.

Step 5: Last step is to colour the bulb. I used the yellow shade from the mood board and colour it with spray. When it's ready, I tied the knot with string in it and hanged it through the whole from the frame. It's ready !!!

See what I want to tell you ... It's all about the start thinking and creating it. You will have fun in the end. Hope you guys like it...
