SAWO-BG with Aluminum Foil

The Saturday Workout Challenge has us making backgrounds with aluminum foil today. This is an easy technique with amazing results. I gently crinkled the foil then smoothed it out, added rust alcohol ink then dabbed on brown acrylic paint. Before the paint dried I blotted it with a paper towel to lift some of the paint. I am very pleased with the results. The " leather" strap is a faux suede ribbon that has been inked and heated until distressed. Size is 4" X 4".

Sarah, this is so beautiful. I love the "leather" strap on the rust foil. I think the browns worked better on this challenge so I may try this again soon.
