Today I’m up on Lindy’s Gang blog with a new project, where I’m going to show you how to create this beautiful project using a frame embroidery hoop. You can use all kinds of things inside the hoop from canvas to velvet! Combine this with some gorgeous vintage toned sprays and powders from Lindy’s and you can make a masterpiece fit for any wall!
First I put a piece of fabric in the embroidery hoop. Then, I primed the fabric with white gesso.
When dry, I added a design with a stencil and white crackle paste. I let dry naturally to allow the crackle to appear.
Before gluing the frame, I added some cardstock to the frame on 3 sides, in order to be able to put a photo and to change it if I want.
With the frame in place, I glued all the embellishments down with a 3D gel.
When dry, I painted all the embellishments with white gesso. When the first layer of gesso was dry, I added a second layer.
Time to add some colors, I started with different spray inks: Tainted with Love, Whale Watch Blue and Silhouette Silver.
Next, I added some Magicals: Steel Shimmer and Steampunk Sepia.
When happy with the result, I added some random stamping with black Archival ink.
Then, I added some black splatters. I used an enamel accent to avoid having the black paint flowing into the crackles.
Next, I embossed with the Twilight Blue Slate EP some splatters of soft gel, that I’ve watered down.
And here are some close-ups of the finished project:
- Sprays: Silhouette Silver, Whale Watch Blue, and Tainted Love Teal
- Magicals: Industrial Chic
