Hi Friends,

Ani here and today I have a lovely tutorial to share with you all as the May challenge inspiration. I totally love old forgotten things and this theme is so close to my heart. So far we have received some amazing entries and I can't really wait to see what more you can create inspired by this theme.

So here's my project

Step 1: I prepared  the surface of this  metal Box with black gesso. Then made holes for a string, so I can hang it to the wall. After it dried, I added Brown Rust paste all over.

Step 2: I added 'found objects' as you can see a lot of them, glued them with gel medium
Step 3: Then I added color spray to the background and everything popped up

 Step 4: Now I added Red and yellow rust paste, and a layer of brass paint to bring the metal shine back. 
Step 5: I glued some dried moss here and there and after that i added the picture and some pieces of paper and my project is now ready...

Hope you like my project. 

Thank You.
