I decided to make something that pushed me out of my comfort zone. I've long admired the work of Anna Dabrowska and since I've booked onto one her workshops later in the year I thought I'd have a go at creating something in Anna's style.
I started with a piece of cardboard which I ripped off parts of the top layer. I then used Grunge Paste through a stencil for the circles and I also dabbed some Grunge Paste on random areas too.
I've noticed that Anna uses all different, everyday items on her projects so I gathered together some buttons of various shapes and sizes, some paperclips and metal washers. I'd also got an offcut of some Grunge Paper that I'd stuck some lace to. Once I'd glued everything down and the Grunge Paste was dry, I painted the whole thing white with some Snowflake Fresco Finish. Then I started to spray with Dylusions sprays. At this point I really wasn't sure what it was going to look like, but held my nerve and carried on!
The sentiment is a Wendy Vecchi stamp and I've layered it onto a piece of cardboard and sandwiched a piece of May Arts crocheted lace in between. The little flower is made from Kraft Glassine paper that I've painted with Fresco Finish paints and then brushed Treasure Gold over and added a little Ideaology fastener to the centre that I've also brushed with TG. I've then brushed more TG over all of the raised areas.
So, something completely different but I really enjoyed exploring a new style. I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and make sure you check out the rest of the DT's fabulous projects.
