Use Your Wings

Use your wings altered tin

i love boxes an tins, i decorate lots of them and eventually find something to use them for,
if not they still look pretty lol
stencil-postcard
from my stash i also used another stencil, a text stamp, and some paper flowers.
firstly i stippled over my tin lid with some gesso, i did it quite thickly as it had some embossing in the centre and i needed to cover it,
i then went over with some white paint,
i took sections of my rice paper and glued them on using gel medium,
when that was dry i went over with the text stamp and randomly put in just tiny bits of the text,
i then added some stencilling with my two different stencils and heavy paste,
when it was all dry i stippled over with some clear gesso, then my wax
lastly i added my title, flower and leaf.
luckily my tin base was pink so i left this along as it matched very well.

Create Art mixed media clipboard

for this project i used….
i also used some heavy paste, a roman numeral stencil, some vintage music paper, my chipboard title from craft box and my other chipboard from scrapiniec. a fabric flower, my frame is the waste from another piece of mdf
firstly i gosso’d my clipboard and some rust paste on the clip but then i changes my mind and went over with the gesso again, i then took some of the designs from my dress my craft rice paper, using a wet paint brush to seperate the designs, doing this allows the fibres to seperate and then you just pull it apart it gives a lovely frayed edge to the paper.
i then placed it onto my clipboard, leaving gaps where i then added some stenciling, firstly with the bonjour stencil and a dark pink paste and then with the roman numeral stencil and  grey paste.
 i gesso’d my frame,
covered some tags with the music paper and some more of the rice paper, i then distressed the tags using some ink and stamps.
nearly forgot i also added an mdf feather gesso’s and a small piece of the rice paper, then inked to distress.
i layered my tags feather and my chipboards, added title.
made a bow with some hand dyed fabric strips and ribbon for the top.
i inked round the edged with some dark pink and then some black , waxed with some silver wax, and then finished with some grey splatters.

 some wooden sticks
some mdf cogs
 paste
 glass bead texture gel
black gesso

Fly- Log Slice Layout

Fly Log Slice Layout.
just love these logs slices they make a lovely and different back ground to work on.
another of my projects for Louise at Thompsons craft supplies
for this project i have used…..
shabby velour vintage green paint
Tim Holtz ideaology- botanical
botanical papers.
Hobbilicious mdf FLY
from my stash i also used some cotton lace, stencil and paste and clear gesso
to start i clear gesso’d my log slice and played with the paint until i was happy with my colours, i then when dry added my paste through a stencil and dried again.
i randomly added my stamp, not the complete stamp just bits in places all over.
i cut my back ground papers to size, distressed the edges with my open scissors and inked to age them.
 i added my lace which had also been aged and layered up my papers using 3d foam pads and gel medium to glue but not right to the edges so that i can tuck other elements under if i want to , i chose several pieces from my ephemera pack and decid’ed on my layout, glued them in place and clear gessod them all.
i then painted my fly with white acrylic paint and finished with some splattering.

Be Brave

So this is aassembly of mdf and metal embellishments from hobbilicious.
And also stenciled background.

I covered all (when dry or semi dry) with a black gesso

I have chosen my paints…

Impasto looks vibrant on black gesso when wet But when all dry it gives you more matte look.
Added metallic fuchsia paint. Spray with water go move around
Started applying waxes when all dry
This is a bunch of metal embellishments available in Hobbilicious 
All finished with few different finnabair waxes
