What a few months its been, Christmas, moving my Mum from the North East of England to be with my sister and I and a lovely chest infection, oh the joys of winter.
Anyway now that all that is settled I am back to creating in my craft room, sigh of contentment!
My friends and I are participating in Wanderlust 2016 and the first challenge has been posted. The stimulus was 'Sometimes what you are most afraid of is the very thing that will set you free'
I wasn't very sure what I was going to do until it happened, so here we are:
I added some texture using Golden extra heavy gel, then a coat of gesso to give a little tooth. Once dry I added mixture of Golden acrylic satin glazing liquid and Golden open acrylic paint, quinacridone nickel azo gold over the surface and rubbed most back off using baby wipes.
I then stencilled another dress form with wings using Prima white crackle glaze and left it to dry and do its magic! Once nicely cracked I added a 'dirty' wash to highlight the cracks. I also added little patches of stencilling to the background. I die cut a dress form and added a little Prima graphite texture paste by dabbing a little here and there. once dry I painted it with DeccoArt quinacridone gold to make it 'rusty'
The wings were die cut using the Tim Holtz Layered Wings die out of Kraft Card. These were painted with gesso and then the edges distressed and then layered up and set aside to dry.
I edged the page with some of the graphite texture paste and, when dry added the quinacridone over the top of the paste and faded it into the page. A few splatters of Dylusions Postbox red spray ink finished the page.
I added the text I had printed using an image transfer technique and I'm done!
I hope that now I can get back to regular posts and creations and look forward to the next few months with glee!
