I have a wall hanging to share with you all today. My inspiration for this project came from Clare Lloyd's Tuesday post on the PaperArtsy blog titled 'Sentimental'. I have used different colours and stamps from Clare I have kept the basics the same - the background technique, a flower and a sentiment. I am entering this project in PaperArtsy blog's weekly challenge.
To make this project I followed the steps on Clare's blog post. To start I covered a small paper Marché wall hanging with Gesso. Once dry I added a layer of Bora Bora Fresco Finish paint. Once this was dry I stamped sentiments from Jofy Collections - 12 and 14 using a Jet Black Archival ink pad. Onto this I them stencil Grunge Paste through a stencil. The stencil I used was Mini Grandma's Doily from The Crafters Workshop.
Once the Grunge Paste was dry I added a layer of Beach Hut Fresco Finish paint.
I stamped the flower from Jofy collection 12 twice onto smooth white card with a Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad. I coloured the stamp images with Copics - YG63, YG67, Y06 and Y08. I cut out one complete image. I then cut out just the flower heads from the second image and added them with foam pads to the complete image, as shown below.
I stamped a sentiment also from Jofy collection 12 onto white card. Following Clare's project I also stamped words on to the black card layer.
I added the sentiment to the wall hanging first and then the flowers so the edge of the flower slightly overlapped the sentiment. To finish I added Glossy Accents to the yellow flower centre and a little Star Dust Stickles to the flowers.
