Morning All! I'm back after the cruise and got home to find a package of loveliness to play with.
An enormous thank you to Sam Poole (who is extremely talented) for sending me these fab goodies to play with. Anywho, this is what's on my desk today.
So what did I do with it all....well, I managed to make 1 wall hanging as I had 3 weeks worth of washing to catch up with. I had to have a little play, couldn't resist! Here's the finished project.
The first thing I did was to cover the background with some K&Co paper which I distressed with Peeled Paint. The arch frame was painted with Mulch Eco-Green Acrylic Paint. I picked up some Olive paint on a piece of Cut 'n Dry and dabbed it on. When it was dry I stamped the Woodgrain background stamp onto it with Coffee Archival Ink.
I've also stamped some of the leaves onto the background and painted them with the Peeled Paint Distress Ink.
The next step was marking where the arch would go so that I could stamp the message in the right place.
I stamped the owl onto a piece of patterned paper (K&Co again) with Archival ink, then overpainted it with Distress Inks. I stamped it again onto Coconut White card, painted it and cut some of it out to decoupage with.
The leaves were also stamped onto white card, cut out and painted.
The colours of Distress Inks used were: Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Vintage Photo and Rusty Hinge.
It was great fun to make and now that the washing and drying are finished...yippee!!!...I can get down to some serious playing. I hope to have lots more finished pieces to show you over the next few days. All of the items used are available from Creative Studios...check online and visit Sam's blog as well as the other design team members.
Many thanks for visiting and I hope to get around as many desks as possible this week. I do appreciate all of the comments that you leave. Until next time....happy crafting.
