Hi there! I’m again this week back with another project to share with you today. I’d wanted to create one of these to display in my crafting area, and when I saw the gorgeous colours for this month’s challenge, I knew I had to use them for this project.
So here’s my tutorial….
I used the negative from a diecut as a stencil, and sponged on some gesso.
I also applied a thick coat of crackle medium using a palette knife.
I applied some modeling paste using the Couture Creations “Honeypot” die as a stencil, then allowed it to dry.
I cut two hearts using dies from the Couture Creations Floral Lace collection and spritzed one with “Cosmopolitan Pink” and “A Bit o Bubbly” Starburst sprays for some gorgeous shimmer. The second diecut was embossed using my latest favorite embossing colour…. Angel Wings Gold!
I sprayed ‘I’m Late, I’m Late Slate’ and ‘South Shore Sand’ to colour the background.
The gesso provides a slight resist so you can gently wipe the spray off with a tissue or baby wipe to reveal the white contrast.
I used ‘Cest la vie Cherise’ to paint the leaves.
C’est la vie Cerise’ was added to the background, with some ‘Time Travel Teal’ to add a bit more depth.
The chipboard pieces were painted with ‘Cest la vie Cherise’ and ‘Time Travel Teal’. I then added all my embellishments.
I stamped and heat embossed a couple of floral images using Twilight Jade Slate over clear embossing ink. This creates a subtle effect.
I mixed Atomic Green Gold Mica powder with some gel medium and threw in a few beads to create some chunky texture.
I hope I’ve inspired you to create something beautiful today.
