HIDING........

Dear friends, we have a new CHALLENGE over at 


This months it is called : ANIMAL MAGIC 

and as you can see I used one of Donna Grey`s wonderful quirky stamps,
of her cat Fred. 
I started painting a greyboard panel with  Ivory , and when dry used the  Decorative Leaf
stencil , using Texture Paste ,  and onto the paste I sprinkled  Baked Texture , Ancient Amber,
and left to dry .
I then found a smaller pannel, I wanted to stamp Fred the cat onto, and chose to do it on 
the with of panel, and after cut to fit the size of the big panel.


I painted it with Mint and when dry stamped Fred using Archival Ink,
for the ink not to bleed . He was colored using watercolor pencils, in brown
tones. I wanted him to hide behind curtains, and ferns, and had a piece of rusted teabag
paper, on my table, which was perfect . 
(you can rust papers, rolling them around some rusted items, place them in a container
and add a little water and vinegar- )
I tore the paper to fit the panel and adhered with a very thin layer of adhesive .
After I stamped the fish bone , from same stamp , in 3 places, and defined the eyes and 
fish heads a bit , using white Sharpie.


The stenciled leaf now dry , was heated with my Heat Gun to change to a beautiful golden raised texture, and after , sprayed with Lustre Spray Aqua , which again
was sprayed with water to make it run a bit , down the panel.which was left to dry.
In between I stenciled some letters, -spelling Hiding - onto a reused brown paperbag, using Texture Paste - after dried they were cut out .
Fred panel was now adhered to the middle long panel ,


and the Fern stencil used to create a little fern hide away around him, 
using Chestnut Brown paint dabbed onto the stencil , with a dry brush.
Lastly the letters were placed on top and button of panel , and black 
ink smeared around the perimeter .

If you had the patience to read it all, I thank you , and send you
all good wishes for today. Please read below, if you want to be a part of the challenge ,
and have fun !!

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.
