Inchie and canvas

Hello Everyone. Lovely to have you drop in at Jumbled Crafts-thank you for the comments you leave which are always so encouraging.

This week the theme for Every Inchie Monday is privacy. Not sure I have really captured privacy with my effort but I guess you are private behind a mask be it real or pretending to be something that you aren't to conceal the real you.

A squiggly background with a little mask I made and an obscure head--you need to look carefully to see that :)

Now to Country View Challenges where the theme is Word Play and also to Moo Mania and More where this time it is texture.



I chose the words first and then wondered how to represent them. I have had the wooden windmill for a while so that was just right for 'turning' as was the wooden screw emblie.  The wooden diamonds have points so they seemed right for the canvas. Windmill, diamonds and screws I bought from Crafty Emblies but not sure what happened to them.

I say canvas but it is really corrugated card which is part of the texture challenge. I added Grunge paste and metal paint to part of it to add  more texture. Then there is the wood as well and thick matte emulsion around the edges

Have a lovely day

I think the mask is a brilliant take on privacy - the perfect hiding place - and the mysterious face is wonderful.

Love your windmill too - what a great way to bring that quote to visual life. Gorgeous textures, and I love the ink effects around the door. Brilliant. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Country View Challenges.

Very different and fun take on the word, privacy. It would be nice to be able to hide behind that mask. I love that windmill too!
