'Mixed Media ', is the new challenge beginning today at Sugar Creek Hollow.Please pop over for all the details and see what we have all been making. Remember we like to see a vintage/shabby chic style on your entries. I have to say I realy enjoyed making this hanging and hope I won't bore you with too many details of how it was made.
As you can see the base was covered with scraps of torn book pages, a super messy job, especially round those letters. The shading was distress ink my favourite Vintage Photo and Tumbled glass
Next came the stamping. I used a selection of Indigo Blu stamps. The poppies were painted with Pebeo Prisme paints, there are some tiny seed beads in the center of the flower heads.
Butterflies were stamped on to acetate before colouring , these have not shown so well on the photographs.
The small chipboard heart was painted with acrylics before covering with Crackle glaze. I rubbed over the cracks with gilding wax when it finally dried out. Then adding the sweet image which was framed using embossing powder with a random sprinkling of Frantage Aged Gold added.
Thank you all for stopping by, I realy appreciate all your comments.
