Hi Everyone, Thanks for stopping by my blog to see my DT project for A Vintage Journey. This month Astrid has chosen the challenge Spring Colours. I thoroughly enjoyed this challenge, although rather apprehensive as it has taken me totally out with my comfort zone of soft muted colours, but I wanted to create something showing the bright colours of Spring from our beautiful Spring Flowers.
My centre piece started off as a piece of burlap glued on to a bit of wood. I put a thick layer of Gesso on to it then applied my Stencil.
Next was to shade colours in a rainbow style using Distress Spray Stains.
In this photograph you see more of the crackle.
My sentiment was stamped with Black Archival Ink onto a paper tissue. I tore around the edges and glued on with Multi Medium.
My frame I used my Scribbles stencil and applied Tim's Technique from his March tag using Pearl embossing powder. Once dry and heat embossed I did a wash with Black Soot Distress paint, wiping back with a baby wipe. This gave my frame the look and shades of Black Pearls.
My flower was stamped onto watercolour paper and shaded with Distress Inks and a water brush, fussy cutting three layers.
My little people were stamped on to watercolour paper then coloured with Distress pens and a water brush with a little Glossy Accents added areas.
Please pop over HERE to see what my talented Teamies have designed and get all the details on entering this challenge. It would be lovely to have you join in and you could win a £20 voucher to spend at Country View Crafts and become an outright winner or Pinworthy.
I do hope you have enjoyed my post and I'd love to hear what you think of my bright colours.
