More Than Words

THE PAST - Everything about historic buildings, especially old churches, intrigues me!  I love exploring both inside and out, and wondering about all the stories and secrets that the walls hold.  I also feel that the way buildings and their surroundings are preserved, tells a lot about the modern towns and cities that have built up around them.

RUST - I took a zillion photos of the cathedral, but for this page I chose a photograph showing the rusty stair railings in the foreground. I altered the chipboard piece with embossing powders and sprays to try to achieve an aged, 'rusty' look.  This part of the challenge pushed me out of my comfort zone, so I'm pretty pleased with what I was able to achieve with my limited mixed media supplies.
