Fridays Gal , Jackie here...
sorry- I love saying that! tee hee
This week, one of our Fab D.T. artists at Artistcellar, Renee Zarate, inspired me with a sweet canvas she created- using Fibo from the Quasi Crystal stencil series.
My granddaughters birthday is coming up and she has been after me to make something fun for her room.
So....out came the FUN!
From the beginning...
I pulled out another previously made background that was in limbo ( I seem to have a large supply of these- lucky me!)
Next I added more color using Ranger-Tim Holtz Distress Stains Fired Brick, Shaded Lilac,Broken China,Wild Honey.
To this palette,I used matte gel to adhere some vintage text- strategically placed-hmm? probably not!
Next, out came The Fibo, Infra and Quasi! as well as,
Wendy Vecci's Clear Embossing Paste and Luminarte Silks- Ginger Peach--mmmmm love that name and as well as the color!
it was time to introduce, a little bit Infra
And did I stop there? No, Fibo joined the party along with more Embossing Paste and Silks~ French Lilac
While all of this was drying, I was happily stenciling away on another page using Quasi again- I love the tiny flowers that appear with this stencil....I started with pinks and yellows but decided it would blend in too much, so I flipped the page over and went to my other favorite colors- turquoise and purples!!Yes I said I flipped the page over!
( tip-I scanned both sides and use for future pieces! )
And speaking of favorite colors!! I have to tell you, that I used the new MEDIA Heavy Body Acrylic Paint by Ranger/Dina Wakley! ~Lemon,Tangerine,Magenta,Blackberry Violet, Sky,and Turquoise
This paint is sooo perfect for stenciling- creamy and smooth- almost velvety! Okay..on with the post!
On the page that I printed out, I stamped Kaisercraft Butterflies and Stampotique Mushrooms .Then I snipped out all my stampings and prepared to adhere! I also penned around some of the Quasi shapes and cut those out for little flowers that I added along the bottom of the page.
Once I had all my pieces strategically placed (for real this time) I set to gluing them in place. The final piece to go on was a stamped quirky little Butterfly Fairy Queen by Ink and the Dog .
I placed her on her throne atop the mushrooms!
My granddaughter like me-likes Quirky! - so this is sure to be a hit!
Here she is!
Here she is!
I hope you enjoyed the process! You should see the mess! ")
