I'm honoured today to be joining Scrapping4Fun as their guest designer. Their theme is Anything Goes and they're sponsored by The Paper Shelter - how awesome!
I chose this time to create something mixed media. I'd started this a while ago and thought it would be nice to get it finished, It looks like a tag but is actually a door hanger made from a wooden shape I bought in Hobbycraft ages ago.
Here you can actually see it hanging up in our living room. You can's quite see the texture properly here so I've taken a couple of angled shots as well.
First I covered the wood with white gesso. Then I used a couple of stencils with some modelling paste for the shapes and writing in the background.
Some more gesso and then some water colour powders and a spritzer came next to move the paint around. I've given it a matt look, first time I've tired these. Ovre this was dry I added some guilding polish over the shapes.
The trees at the bottom were made from Dusty Attic chipboard sprinkled with embossing enamel which I then heated with a heat gun.
The bird has been in my stash for ages. The sentiment "Live the Moment" is made up from Tim Holtz stickers. Finally a little ribbon through the top to make the hanger.
Thank you to Rachelle and the team for having me this time
