I do believe Spring has finally arrived here in our neck of the woods! We have already had two mornings of frost on the crocus,so fingers crossed,Spring is here to stay!
I love these colors-so bright and cheerful-especially after a gloomy winter!
1.)I started out with a wooden plaque from the thrift store,removed the metal pieces from it and sanded it down.
2.)Coat the plaque with white gesso
3.)Using Jessica Sporn's Stencil~Namaste' , scrape clear embossing paste through with a palette knife.
I used embossing paste as I wanted the shine it yields.
4.)While the paste was still tacky,spray several coats of Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays in ~Magnolia Magenta Gold,Hi Maintenance Magenta,Wild Honeysuckle Coral
as well as Tattered Angels~Polka Dot Pink
5.)On separate paper, I stamped IndigoBlu~Wild Flowers with Black Archival ink-let dry
6.)When dry, I tattered the edges of the stamped image paper
7.)Next spray small amounts of Lindy's~California Poppy Gold,Glory of the Seas Gold,Bells of Ireland Green,Magnolia Magenta Gold,Hi Maintenance Magenta,Wild Honeysuckle Coral
and also Tattered Angels~Polka Dot Pink sprays
in a palette to use as watercolors to paint in background and flowers.
8.)Once dry,center and glue down stmped piece leaving edges up and furled slightly
9.)My mini dragonflies are made from scanning my Tim Holtz~Layered Dragonfly Die,one I had previously made and for another project,and printing this out smaller.
10.)Fancy cut and add DecoArt Clear Crackle to these before gluing into place.
11.) Add sentiment if desired.
These colors are as vivid as they look and speak so much of Spring and new beginnings to me!
