Triplets - Neil Walker

Good Morning everyone,

Welcome to a busy week here on the blog.
We are at the last week of January 
already.  Goodness how time flies!

So what have we got for you this 
week, well, we thought the
DT were in need of a bit of repetition, 
three times in fact so we gave 
them the word Triplets!
And the details were.....
A design cut into 3 or a series of 3 designs.

Well, this is what Neil has made,
a fantastic project with so much
work in it....

For my Triple I selected 3 door plates from Andy 
Skinner's and glued them together along with
 cutting some chipboard strips to raise up 
the top and bottom sections

When dry I painted them as seen with DecoArt Fluid
 Acrylic in four colours.

When they were dry I covered everything with
 a layer of Titan Buff.

I scrubbed back areas to reveal the colours,
 covered everything with Antiquing Cream and
 wiped back to give layers of faded distress.

Using one of my masks and Gold Interference
 paint I added a little subtle patterned shimmer
 detail. Then everything was sealed
with spray sealer.

I created a base board from thick A4 chipboard,
 burlap and crackle paste.

When dry I coloured with paint.

Further detail was added with Seth Apter stamps,
 embossing ink and Frantage powder.

Then the fun began. I added my door plates
 to the board and rummaged through my
 embellishment drawers to add metal accents.

I love these old style keys and ornate
 metal lock plate.

Thank you Neil, I absolutely love this.....what do you think,
