a dream is a wish your heart makes!

hey there,
well here I am today with yet another non tag !!! how shocked are you!? I am here with my first ever foray into a spool piece using Wendy Vecchi arts parts, so here she is :
Not sure this photo does the colours jsutice!?sorry
I have always admired the fab spools others have made and Hels here makes fab pieces using them..so I wanted to have a go. i started by colouring the pieces using one of my all time favs in DI..broken china, i then over stamped some script in picket fence distress stain, blasted, re - inked and then stamped the script in black archival.

The watch was arts parts coloured , glued and then script stamped across top layer.Once the main elements were ready I played making butterflies with the fantastic clearly for art film and butterflies onto grungepaper coloured with DI. I love the way these two layers gives a fab effect.

 The flowers were made using Tim's movers and shapers tattered floral die and spritzed with perfect pearls mist when ink dry.

To complete I added a large bottle to help support the watch part, a little bottle,the word dream from a Wendy quote, and a quote at the base.

I am chuffed with this monochrome piece and can see me playing with these lots more!! for more fab arts parts inspiration be sure to visit Hels here as she is the Queen of arts parts!
