Hello ! Today I'm sharing my second DT project for Country View Crafts current challenge which is Painty Pleasures.
I started with a wooden Triptych and sanded it lightly then painted it with a coat of Moonlight Fresco Finish paint. I then used a babywipe and blended Pansy and Concrete Fresco Finish over it. I did some stencilling using the 'bumping' technique and The Crafters Workshop Spinning Tops stencil. The main image is a Lynne Perella stamp and I've stamped her on to tissue paper and painted her with Fresco Finish paints. The frame is die cut from thick cardboard using the Ornate Frame die, I've painted it with Pansy Fresco Finish and then used Amethyst Treasure Gold. The rose is made from metal and I've also brushed Treasure Gold over it as well. the lock and the key are cut form cardboard covered with sticky back canvas, painted and then brushed with Treasure Gold. The paper roses and remaining embellishments have also been painted with Fresco Finish paint.
I used The Crafters Workshop Thistle stencil on the reverse using Grunge Paste. I've brushed the heads of the thistles with Treasure Gold too.
This project is also one of my classes at The Artist Trading Post on the 14th June, so if you like what you see come along and create your own !
