Good evening all and thanks for joining me, this Friday evening...where has that lovely weather gone?
I have a feeling that it is going to be a wet and windy drive up to Kendal tomorrow..
I am demonstrating all things Clarity, stamps, stencils and Groovi plates at Grosvenor House Papers Summer Crafting event...it was a brilliant day last year, so I am really looking forward to it.
So the last few days I have been busy sorting out samples and demonstrations..
I just hope I have remembered to pack everything...mind you I have three big bags...so fingers crossed everything is there..
This evening I thought I would share a piece of home decor with you...it is made with one of the new postcards....
I really wanted to use the postcard in an unusual way...( it's good to try something a bit different )
I started with a wooden heart...( reminds me of a song!!!) , some grunge paste and the double sprig stencil
Then I added some die cuts and embellishments, and die cut some extra leaves.
Don't worry about the colours,not matching,,,they won't look like that for long,,,
I painted everything with black gesso....I do love this part....
Next I add some colour using Inka Gold paint...I water it down and apply it as a wash...
The colours mix really well
Now onto the postcard
I decided on the postcard , that took a while....they are all so lovely...
And I decided to tear the edges...and then started to paint using Inka gold paints, so that it matches the colour tones of the heart
This is so relaxing to do..
I then attached this to the heart and used the extra leaves to overlap in places, to give continuity .
I used some gilding wax around the edges and for highlights, then to finish off I used some Spray and shine,,
A real fun wall hanging to make...
I really enjoy this type of mixed media...even the getting my hands dirty part...
I hope you have a lovely day tomorrow..whatever you are doing...
Take care ,
Much love and hugs
