Blooming Field #2 for AALL & Create

Hello Friends

I am back with my Guest Design project for AALL & Create.  I have created a mixed media piece, using Olga Heldwein's Blooming Field stamp set again, along with stencil #38, also by Olga.
I had a piece of cardboard from a recent delivery that I thought was too good to throw away.
I removed some of the top layer and then covered the whole piece with gesso.
I added some blue paint over the gesso and then applied crackle paste both directly here and there and also through stencil #38 (a gift from my lovely friend Jo Rice).  I applied the same blue paint to the edges of a further piece of board.  The cardboard itself is not strong enough on its own to provide a sturdy base.
To add some further texture I stamped #125 by Aida Domisiewicz randomly over the base. 
I wanted a frame for the flowers, this one was in my stash, with some texture already, so I painted over with blue paint.
I stamped the flowers onto watercolour cardstock and coloured them with watercolour pencils, then fussy cut each one (there is now a set of dies available to do this but I did not have this at the time of making this project).
 I assembled the flowers onto the frame.  The largest flower was layered up to give some extra dimension.  Finally, I added the sentiment to complete my project.

All of the stamps and stencils I used are available from AALL & Create HERE, where you will also find a list of worldwide stockists.  AALL & Create do encourage you to buy from your local stockist wherever possible.


  1. This is gorgeous Anne . Love the frame element and the colour of your flowers 😘😘😘

  2. So excited to see your beautiful card as I ordered the whole caboodle from Hochanda and eagerly await it's arrival. A real help to see other takes on these.

  3. This is fabulous Anne, beautiful flowers, perfect sentiment, and the frame and texture paste just finish it all off perfectly. Have a very happy week, Sue xx

  4. This is gorgeous. The colour of the flowers looks fab against the turquoise. I also like the texture and how you've added the frame xx

  5. I adore how you used the corrugated card as a backdrop for Olga's magnificent flowers what a stunning piece Anne. The frame brings it all together making the beauty of that bouquet stand out even more. A design I believe could be used all year round. So beautiful, Thank you so much for sharing in blogland Anne.
    Sending Hugs your way wishing you a super weekend Tracey xx

  6. A most pretty and cheerful card Anne. Love all your textured layers and perfect fussy cutting. Gorgeous watercolouring too. AALL & Create are so lucky to have you. Wishing you both a lovely weekend. Nicola x

  7. This is another beautiful floral creation, Anne. I adore the rugged texture of the wall behind - both the corrugated parts and the bricks. The depth and dimension you've created with your fabulous pencilled watercolour is just amazing. Lovely, lovely work, as always.

  9. Ooooh, I love this floral mixed media piece, Anne! The flowers are stunning and so lifelike! They are lovely paired with the shabby rustic brick background. Another gorgeous make! I'm really enjoying my visit and my little catch up with you this morning! Merry Christmas and apologies for being so late. Life is hectic and a little topsy turvy right now, as is expected! Sending big hugs across the pond!

  10. I am so crazy over this Anne! I spotted it on a Google search and knew it was yours right away. LOVE LOVE! <3
