Lovely of you to stop over at my Blog this May Bank Holiday weekend and a warm welcome to my new followers. I have exciting news to share with you all which is at the bottom of this post.
Thanks for all the comments last week on my Wagon, I was delighted to hear how much you all loved it.
I used a little frame for my project purchased from a bargain shop giving it a coat of Gesso sanding it back and rubbing on a little distress paint.
Using a sheet of Acetate I cut out my French Lattice Small Frame die. I now had a stencil. The idea in my head was I wanted to make my background look like an old Antique Delft Tile and thought this die would be perfect to use.
I layered some texture paste over my newly made stencil onto the back of the frame and once dry gave it a coat of Gesso to seal. I then stamped little Butterflies all over in different angles. Next placing my stencil back onto my work I brushed on some crackle paint. This way the paint only went onto the little tiles. When this had dried I rubbed some distress ink into the cracks. Don’t you think it looks like an old tile now ?
I used the Shasta Daisy to make some lovely bright flowers adding some Distress Ink into the centre of them along with a little Flower Soft. The little buds were made using the same die but instead of layering up this time I just crushed the paper at the base on one layer and placed in at an angle.
Now for my news - After finishing my Guest Design spot for April with Cheery Lynn Designs, I was ecstatic to be asked by BJ and Sandy to join the wonderful Design Team. I am so excited to continue sharing my ideas using their amazing dies with everyone – Dreams do come True. They have a weekly challenge which you can win $20 to spend in their shop on some new dies.
Hope you all have a creative weekend,
