today I would like to shear my latest creation,
it's a wall hanging for my new bedroom,
I love doing the paint fusion paintings (I'm hooked)
if you haven't come across this before then head over to
http://www.sheena.tv/ Sheena Douglass will explain all.
While I was at ally pally at the weekend I met a lovely lady called
Katie (she was Sheena's stand in for the show)
I took my inspiration for this piece from a sample she had on the stand,
here's a link to her blog chantilly rose crafts
she has some amazing stuff to show you.
OK here it is,
I started with 3 15cm x 15cm pieces of mount board,
I covered them with patterned paper,
added eyelets to thread the ribbon through
then I used the WOW embossing powders
(& they are WOW I love the glittery ones, brass is my fave)
next I took 3 10cm x 10cm pieces of mount board
& done Sheena's distress background on them
(it's all explained in Sheena's paint fusion DVD)
I then painted a selection of daisies & leaves on them,
I used weathered wood distress ink to age parts of the background,
I went round the edge with
BRASS GLITTER WOW embossing powder,
then I added the die cut letters
DAISY MAKE ME SMILE (well they do)
& I added glossy accents over the top of them.
threaded it all together & hay presto there you have it!
Here's some close ups.
I love that I can paint with this much detail,
with so little effort,
thanks Sheena your amazing.
I am entering this into the following challenges,
the theme this time is EMBOSSING
as I have heat embossed on it,
the theme this time is,
SHOW SOME DISTRESSING
this is the distressed background
(I thought I would challenge myself to thinking outside
the box & not automatically reach for the distress inks,
as I always do, but a little weathered wood did sneak in) LOL
Hope you like it as much as I do,
I get so much satisfaction from these techniques
& I am quite proud of this piece,
even if I do say so myself, lol
Thanks for stopping by,
