Am I excited, - well yes, who wouldn't be right? The link actually goes to the Snazzys blog, as it was one of the DT posts I did for them. As I only showed a sneak peek here, I now feel I want to show the full project here and how I did it, so here goes:
I started with three colours of Distress Paints, Antique Linen, Bundled Sage and Frayed Burlap. I layered on a good layer of paint, spritzt a bit with water and then dried with my heat gun. I then played around with some Tim Holtz Tissue Tape and Prima Washi Tapes. I also used some stencils and masks from my stash,Next came various background stamps and the main stamp, (La Blanche) stamped on Tissue Paper, just to make sure it would land up exactly where I wanted it... I glued that onto the canvas and dabbed some Distress Inks over and around it.
I made a cluster from various bits and pieces and adhered it with Gel Medium. I also added some Prima Flowers. I masked the main image with a damp baby wipe and some kitchen roll. I then painted the cluster with Gesso and when that was dry took a deep breath and spritzt it with Dylusions Sprays in Melted Chocolate and Black Marble. Oops, a bit dark, so White Linen came to the rescue... I also rubbed some Treasure Gold over the flowers.
Well, I hope I have not bored you by showing this project for a second time, but, - not everyone hops over to another blog, and like I said, I had not shown it here.
So thank you for visiting, for your support and for your lovely comments, you are all wonderful!!
Have a great creative week!
