I would like to start with a couple of thank yous. Firstly, thank you to my lovely new followers, it is wonderful and very flattering to have you along on my crafting journey.
I would also to thank all of you who commented on my last post (my poppy card). I was totally overwhelmed and very touched by the response I received. You are all very kind and generous and gave me a great boost! Thank you again.
I have not been doing too much crafting, the Builders are in full swing now and we just have to get out for a while each day to escape the noise and dust, but it will be worth it in the end.......
This is a canvas I did a couple of weeks ago, it is in the same style as my journal pages from a few weeks ago and for once I am very pleased with the way it has turned out. The colours are much brighter in real life but if you click on it you will get a better view.
The canvas is 10" x 8". I covered it with gesso first and then added some torn book pages here and there. I painted over this with two colours of Distress Paints, Broken China and Salty Ocean. Once dry I dabbed white acrylic paint over the canvas. I then used a couple of stencils (chicken wire and harlequin) and some sequin waste and dabbed through with Salty Ocean Distress Paint.
Then came the fun bit, I got my Crafters Workshop stencil out and used Wendy Vecchi embossing paste through the stencil to create the circles (did I say how much I love this stencil?). I then took some cheesecloth and coated it with white acrylic paint and put under my triple embossed Wendy Vecchi heart.
The sentiment is a Tim Holtz stamp that my lovely blog friend Sandy gifted to me. I did a very small thing for her and she sent me this amazing stamp! How lucky am I? I stamped it out on plain white card, cut the words out and then edged each in black Distress Ink.
Edited: I only linked this up late last night and today I noticed that Hels Sheridan's Sunday Stampers Week 248 Challenge is 'You Make Me Feel Brand New' where the requirement is to use some new stash (TH paints and WV Embossing Paste) or use something you have had for a while and not used (my lovely TH stamp from Sandy) so I am entering this piece into that challenge.
Thank you for visiting, I hope you will leave me a comment, I love to read them all. Hugs, Anne xx
