EMBRACE THE QUIET MOMENTS


DEAR FRIENDS,  we are on round two, in this months CHALLENGE :
CLOSE TO NATURE .
Here is my panel this Wednesday .  
I hope you would like to play with us, and maybe win a price .       


It is a tag ,onto which I first stenciled , using the Abstract Grid, around
the perimeter , dabbing with Buttercup paint.
I found two old lace scratches, lying around , and placed them one under the other.
Then I stenciled the leaves using Texture Paste , and partly covering
the old lace. 


When dry one of the beautiful roses from the rose stencil, was
also added using Texture Paste, and on the bottom the grid stencils was
used again ,with texture paste, too.
After all dried ,I mixed Flat Matte spray Rose, with diluted Chestnut Brown,
onto my craftmat- and with lots of water added it to the panel ,very carefully, 
not to cover the grid.


Also I draw lines, around roses and leaves to give more attention to them,
using a gold brown aquaralle pencil,- and leaves were dabbed with Butternut and white 
paint here and there.
Onto scratch of old book paper, I stamped one of the new Affirmations
created by Lynne .
Lastly another piece of the old lace was attached to the tag hole on top.

SECRETS WHISPERED IN THE SECRET GARDEN

Hello friends, I`m back, with  a new  CHALLENGE for the months, of July ,
 called :CLOSE TO NATURE  (  TREES -LEAVES )

This time I used an MDF panel, over which I smeared thinned gesso, and after dry , 
using the Dinky tree stencil , stenciled 3 trees onto the background, using Leaf green and Coffee  Archival inks.
After I stamped the text stamp here and there, on panel also in brown .


And beneath the trees , I stamped flowers from Lynne`s  Wildflower
set, and painted them with white , several times, adding lots of paint to 
create a 3-d look.


 A greyboard tree was painted in green brown tones - using the inks again ,
and the trunk also stenciled
with a Dinky stencil to add a bark, look,  to it. 


White and green tulle, were heated with the heat-gun to create flower heads, 
Tiny greyboard leaves were painted,
and words from Lynne`s stampset , stamped onto white paper.
Tree , flowers , leaves, and text were adhered,- the flowers with a faux rhinestone in the centers.
With my Crop A Dile I made holes on top panel, and added a piece of old rusty 
metal thread, as hanger.  Around the perimeter I smeared brown ink- and under the stenciled trees green , to act a bit mossy :-) 


This  challenge will start at 11am today !!!


The winner of this challenge will receive a £30 voucher to spend in our online shop and our Top 3 will receive a stencil/s of their choice from our own That's Crafty! brand.
