I was completely dumbstruck when Abs (Autour de Mwa of AALL & Create) asked me to join his Design Team for a temporary period of three months, it was not something I ever expected and I am over the moon happy! Each Thursday I will post a project using AALL & Create stamps and stencils.
I would like to thank everyone who left me messages on Facebook, I was really humbled by the comments by friends on this temporary appointment, thank you all!
Even though summer is long gone, I could not resist Olga Heldwein's gorgeous Underwater Wonders stamp set to create an underwater scene.
I started with a large MDF tag.
I painted the tag with gesso ant then applied some crackle paste here and there. After painting over the tag with Dina Wakley turquoise paint I applied embossing paste through Stencil #39. Once the paste was dry I used ink through the stencil here and there, it is very subtle.
I am so in love with Olga Heldwein's gorgeous seahorse stamp! I stamped in Potting Soil Archival ink and used watercolour paints to colour my seahorses and then fussy cut them out.
I coloured a few of the shells from the stamp set and cut them out.
Next, I used embossing paste through Stencil #44, coloured the starfish and ammonites with ink and cut them out.
To create the sea floor I added some greenery, my cut out stamped elements, some real shells, wood planks and some art stones.
Finally, to finish off, I added some words from the stamp set and also some charms from my stash.
I hope you will join me next week when I will have something completely different to share with you.
Should you wish to purchase any AALL & Create stamps or stencils you can find a complete list of world-wide stockists in the e-shop HERE.
As always, thanks so much for your visit, I really do appreciate you taking
the time. Hope to see you soon.
Hugs, Anne xxx
