just hanging around ...
well another weekend bites the dust! It has been a hard week but James managed four mornings ..this week is going to be hard for him as today all his friends are off on a week long residential trip and James has been told he is not up to going! To say he is devastated is an understatement! Thanks to everyone ... for their thoughts..means a lot. (So James is at home this week, doing his school work.) So onto craftiness ... I made this hanging last weekend and it is another play with an old amazon cardboard box, which I cut a panel off and here is my make :
I started by pulling off some areas of the card and the covering the whole piece with gesso. I then applied some texture paste through the art is.. text stencil..one of my favourites! When dry I applied distress ink in frayed burlap, weathered wood and broken china. Once dry I added some white fire treasure gold.
The image a gorgeous Artistic Outpost one was stamped with weathered wood and clear embossed as I wanted it to almost fade into its surroundings. I then coloured with distress inks and flicked with water.
The sentiment is also an Artistic Outspost stamp from think and wonder set.
I added some crochet lace and flowers which have been sprayed with a homemade stormy sky spray, and then perfect pearls.
