Authentic Always !

Today I'm sharing my DT project for the Funkie side of the Frilly and Funkie team. I'm hosting the current challenge and I chose the theme of Stencils and Texture, I love making projects with lots of stencils and texture !

I decided I would do a journal page and started by covering some card with a piece of Tissue Wrap. While the glue was still wet I scrunched it up to create lots of ripples and texture.

I then dabbed Distress Paints over it and spritzed it really well with water and let the paint run. When it was dry I then stencilled using the Wendy Vecchi Dots and Stripes stencil and a Prima stencil.

I used Wendy Vecchi's black Embossing paste and the TCW Art Is stencil for the text. When the paste was dry I re-positioned the stencil and brushed some Classic Treasure Gold over it.

I used the same technique for the word Authentic and Always. The key has been painted with Fresco Finish paint as have the other metal embellishments.

The hearts have been die cut from Grunge Paper that I've stuck book paper on to. I've hand drawn the black lines and then blended DI around the edge.

I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and do make sure you hope over to the main blog and check out the rest of the DT's fabulous projects.
