Hi Crafty Bloggers
How are we all ?? It's been raining non stop here all day so
perfect for getting messy in the craft room ;0)
I have decorated a wooden tag from Liza's Craft Shop <3
I have painted the two parts of the wooden tag on a craft mat with 13 arts guesso.
Once the paint is dry I use a stencil on the top half
with homemade texture paste .
I like to let the texture paste air dry for a couple of hours .
I then glue the two pieces together and also paint the back with guesso and leave to dry .
I then arrange some mulberry flowers and metal embellishments in the center . I manipulate the flowers to the shape I want with painting a light coating of guesso and also on the metal pieces. Lastly I add some prima pebbles in the gaps at the bottom and in the center of the metal piece. I use the fabritac glue again.
I have chosen 3 Lindy's stampgang sprays to colour .
I spray the lighter colour at the top and then the darker ones to the bottom. I spray several times until I like the colour .
Once dry I rub on decoart Metallic Lustre around the edges and on the metal pieces, pebbles and stamens and use an old small paintbrush for areas to finish .
I then add some multi matt medium and
add some fine glitter around the pebbles.
I then decide to add some flatback pearls as I have a few small gaps.
Lastly I use black ink onto a chipboard sentiment and use for the top .
Liza has a new website coming very soon with just about everything I have used above so please check out all the awesome mixed media goodies <3
I hope you are inspired to get crafty
