Good evening everyone,
Hope your week has started well.
I am suffering with my back again, it is all this furniture moving,
and more tomorrow.
We are hiring a van to take the last load from Nottingham to Didsbury.
Mikey and Frans new apartment is fabulous and they are so excited about moving in.
So I decided to make a piece of art for their hall way.
We have framed some photographs for them ,as a surprise ,
but I wanted to make something special.
This is what I made
Hope you like it
Really hope Mikey and Fran like it too
I found this frame in the reduced box in my local shop
I cut three pieces of card
Then I added some paint using Mr Billy Brayer ( he needed to come out and play )
Next I added some blue paint splatters.
When dry , I added some stamping using this
fabulous border stamp from AALL & Create.
Next came some grunge paste through a stencil.
Again this is from AALL & Create.
On separate card I stamped , added some colour and cut out my designs.
I matted and layered my backgrounds ,
and then added the focal pieces, using some twine, and mess to add texture.
To finish off, I added some white highlights with my Sharpie pen, and then assembled the frame.
I am so pleased with the way this has turned out,
Here is a closer look
At each piece
Such beautiful stamp designs.
I am looking forwards to seeing this hanging on the wall.
Have you mounted any of your work?
It is such a rewarding thing to do.
Must go, still lots to do this evening, and an early start tomorrow.
Take care all
Much love and hugs
