How’s everyone’s weekend so far? This morning dawned bright, sunny & warm. Until about 9.30 that is, when the cloud arrived & stayed for the rest of the day. I took myself off to my craft room, where I spent the day trying to block out the barking dogs, screaming children, yelling adults & fighting teenagers that I have the misfortune to live amongst. To be very serious for a moment, I am feeling increasingly trapped where I live. It’s not an easy environment for a solitary introvert………..
Anyway, on to more pleasant things. This is my second project for this week’s PaperArtsy challenge & it is based on Keren’s gorgeous frame from Monday night’s post. I wanted to keep it very simple, with lots of white. I used stamps from the Love & Kisses 1 set, with Zesty Zing & Yellow Submarine Fresco paints, with a piece of Core’dinations card behind, Red Pepper I think. The frame is from that Swedish shop.
I stamped the house with black Versacolor ink & heat set with clear embossing powder, then painted it before cutting a few areas – my craft knife skills are as bad as my measuring, so this was a laborious process, but I think it looks fairly ok.
I NEVER get tired of the crackle effect. The layer underneath the PA Crackle Glaze is a mix of Concrete & Little Black Dress – my go to combination for a perfect grey. Snowflake Fresco went on top of the crackle glaze & I brushed Metallic Glaze on top of that. The heart & the strip at the bottom were stamped onto tissue paper with Red Geranium Archival ink.
Thanks so much to Keren for her inspiration this week & to you for looking. See you next time.
