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.

THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME

So we reached the second CHALLENGE this June,  of :
A SUMMER`S DAY-
and I had this house , from one of Melina`s newest stamps set,
which is so lovely and fairy-like , a tiny castle to call home.
I used one of the new greyboard tags, and stamped the house directly to the 
background, after having painted it white.
After  Flat Matte Spray Tomato was sprayed over the house and tag, with 
diluted Chestnut Brown paint- 
I stamped the house onto white tissue paper , and adhered to the not totally dry
sprayed greyboard, which results in the tissue ,soaking up the sprays.


After,- one of my favorite stencils was used with texture paste, in left side panel 
and left to dry. I made a kind of tiny flower from old lace, and stamped the
words from same set as the houses- onto a piece of white cotton.
It was layered with fabric netting onto another piece of fabric, and I sewed around it,
with sewing mashine.


The lovely bush was painted with green sharpie,and  
the windows got a little white . I outlined the stamped house with
brown, painted with Multi Surface Paint Mint around it over the whole tag , and
used a little Flat Matte Tomato on to the stenciled pattern, followed with 
Distress Ink -Gathered Twigs. Then stamped two birds from Lynnes Set 2
flying over the house - in black-


Adhered flower and a torn edge of lace to panel-  punched two holes, in the bottom,
through where I tied the fabric sign with the help of two strings. 
A white sari silk piece, was also painted with the different sprays and paints,
and tied through the tag hole, and wrote Summer in right side panel.

NOW WOULD THIS FANCY YOU, TO TAKE PART IN :

This challenge will run until 10am, Wednesday 4th July. Our next challenge will start at 11am on Wednesday 4th July.
