if you had wings where would you fly..Creative Expressions Dt make
well the posts are going to be thick and fast this week sorry.. but here I am again with another make using the fab dress form designed by Sam Poole. This is a great and versatile stamp from the new single stamp range ..my first make with this stamp can be found here and now here is my second:
I created a heart hanging piece this time in my favourite brown shades. So I started using the wendy vecchi heart stencil as a template for the heart shape and enlarged it to create two stacking heart shapes. For the outer heart shape I covered it in book pages and then coated with a mix of watered down gesso and sand eco paint to create a great soft off white colour .
I then inked this heart with vintage photo distress ink and edged in walnut stain..using a watered down version of the paint allows some of the text to show through the paint and inky layers. The second smaller heart was covered with studio 490 embossing paste in white through the great mechanical mask. I coated this with the same painty mixture and then when dry applied distress ink and spritzed with water to create some lighter details..
I then used a small amount of bronze eco paint to highlight some of the texture of the embossing paste.
The dressform itself was stamped twice in coffee archival and the first created the base layer and then I cut out the wings and added to create dimension. all had some soft colour added using distress stains and a waterbrush.
I added a mini gear and some rusty wire..had too didn't I? I also used this rusty wire to hang the hanging..if that makes sense. Finally the sentiment .. if I had wings from art sayings.
Well hope you liked my make , will be back tomorrow with two more dt posts and another one on Thursday!
