Old Glory

Here is another one of my Mixed Media Project for the 4th of July.  Again I had to play with those EcoArt Boards from RubberstampConcepts I love so much. 

Supply list
8 x 10 EcoArt Board from Rubberstamp Concepts
Red, White and Blue Acrylic Paint
Wood Star from a craft store I got mine at Micheal's
Heartwarming Vintage Booklets "Seasonal" from Crafty Secrets
Metal word from Die cuts with a View
Burnt Sienna Glaze from Golden Paints
Black Marker - fine point
Black India Ink
Stamp:  "Freedom is Never Free" from Stampotique

1)  Paint Blue square at top left hand corner of 8" x 10" EcoArt Board. 
2)  Paint Red Strip and White Strips to complete flag design
3)  Paint Wood Star with White Acrylic Paint.  After Star's are dry adhere to Blue square of flag.  See sample for placement.
4)  Cut Vintage Images from "Seasonal" Booklets and adhere to EcoArt Board
5)  Adhere Metal Words to Ecoart Board.
6)  Ink "Freedom is Never Free" with Black India Ink and stamp onto one of the White strips of the flag.
7)  Using a fine point Black Marker and stickers around of the strips, stars and blue square of the flag. 
8)  Using a Make up sponge add "Burnt Sienna" Glaze to all image and flag - this will give your piece an aged look.
