Here is my make for Creative Expressions this week using this lovely doily die and also yummy texture paste in silver pearl ( there are lots of colours to choose from and its great!)
I decided to make a hanging on mountboard and make use of a tag and doily die cut too...so here is my make :
I started by creating some textured areas using white cosmic shimmer texture paste through various stencils. then I coloured using distress paints, do so LOVE these...I used broken china and rusty hinge. I also used these colours for the die cut doily piece and also the tag . (the doily is a whole circular piece but here I have just used a small piece ).
I then added layers of stamping using bubble wrap background stamp and also text and numbers from Wendy Vecchi set , love to make art.
The sentiment create art comes from Wendy Vecchi set ...word art. This was stamped in black archival, and inked up using distress inks in broken china and rusty hinge.
The flower is silver pearl texture paste applied through Wendy Vecchi flower stencil, applied in a rough manner to create a textured finish.
I then painted the dried paste , with distress paints, and also applied gilding wax to highlight the texture.
The texture paste spreads really smoothly, but different textures can be achieved...I applied roughly for the flower...and for the strips the paste for the strips was applied smoothly and then blasted with a heat gun which creates these fab bubbles...These can be left or flattened slightly...and gives another texture but can be left smooth.
I also added some rusty wire...not my usual colours but what do you think?
make sure you check out the other fab makes from my team mates x
have a fun and inky day!
well I have had a quiet week, feeling slightly sorry for myself..but am trying to get back into creating and blogging and hopefully I will find my mojo lurking somewhere too.....So onwards...comments will be coming honest....
