3up drum Roll To Cynthia, Margaret And Alison ....

Tonight we would like to welcome Cynthia, Margaret and Alison to the 3UP fun.
 
Cynthia Yeomans(aka RainbowLady)



I was delighted to be chosen to do this new fab PATWITS #3UP challenge.


I was given three items to use to create one project... the plaque, buttons and fab flowers.
I used the super new Grunge Paste over a couple of butterfly and button stencils.



 Next I painted Cinnamon, Honey Dew and Blood Orange Fresco Paints and Crackle Glaze over the top, drying each layer before moving on to the next.


Yes - really I did not use purple this time!!!  lol.


Stamped random Haberdashery stamps then added some Gilding wax and Sparkle medium to the raised areas.
 

I coloured the mannequin using Dylusions Ink Sprays with added stamps, black dots and some flourishes - attached a tassel and one of the flowers. and the gold wings from my stash.
Fastened with bakers twine the metal buttons, scissors, pins and artful embellies plus a sewing machine and cotton reel top.



Created some leaves using the Tim Holtz die and stamped 'You're Sew Special' in black... using a Debbi Moore stamp. A few hat pins and the fab flowers finished it off.
Many thanks for the chance to do this super new challenge... hope you like it'


Next up is .... 

Margaret Brackenbury


 #3UP PIECEs WERE A MEDIUM FRAME, GATE CUT OUT and WINGS.

To these I added a large canvas board, for the base and two smaller canvas mini boards.   I cover all the wooden and canvass pieces with Gesso,  next I covered the main canvas and the two minis with Sherbet Fresco Paint, then dry brushed with ClaretI then stamped the Paperartsy Minis29 and 44 in both Rose and Snowflake to create the background. 


 Next I stamped the flowers in Rose and BlackArchival Ink – Stamp sets  HP1009 and 1010.  With me so far.  I then painted in some of the flowers again using Rose and Claret.  The larger frame top left, I painted in Claret, added a coating of  Crackle Glaze allowed to dry and top coated with Rose, and stamped the top and sides with  Mini 68, Next I used Mini Flowers  MN67 and MN68 at the bottom left and right corners, first in Claret and then in Black Archival Ink.  I added edging to all the sides using a metallic rub on.



Now to the decorating bits, words top right are from ELNB02 and to the larger block top left I added the wings, and words from  HP1005.  The roses are made using the Tim Holtz Tattered Pinecone Die using Smoothy White Stamping Card which was painted in Rose and Claret. Plus a couple of  little beads. I used ribbon to create a fence at the bottom, cutting a little piece off to add to the sides of the little frames. The gate I painted with Treasure Gold Liquid LeafSilver


 The Dragonfly was made using the Paperartsy Metal Card, embossed and die cut. Some white pen word just to bring out the central flowers. Cant do anything without a bit of white pen!!!!

I finally added some little die cut flowers (Tim Holtz Tattered Florals), buttons and cord.  The hanger at the top is made from knitted wire tube with little pearls knotted at intervals.



So there it is I loved making my "Secret Garden" and thanks for the opportunity to create.


 


And last but not least tonight is ....  

Alison Hall


First I painted the greyboard coaster with Snowflake Fresco Paint. Then I used Grunge Paste through the Crafter's Workshop Mini Quatrefoil Stencil. When the paste was dry, I painted all over with London Bus, then sponged highlights around the edge with Claret, and Eggplant. I added some highlights with White Fire Treasure Gold, then buffed it up. I sponged some Little Black Dress around the very edge, then used the same colour to stamp the "German Script" from ESN01

I separated the little Tando gate down the middle, then painted the pieces with Little Black Dress Fresco Paint. I used White Fire Treasure Gold to add highlights. Then I glued the 'gates' in place on the board.

I stamped and cut out the lady's face from Petals Plate No.3, the Pierrot hat, the '36' bingo counter, and the phrase from Pierrot Plate No.2, & the 'body' from Doll's Plate No.4. I used watered down Fresco Finish Paint (London Bus, Eggplant & French Roast) to colour the images. 


I grunged up the silver wings with some Little Black Dress Fresco Paint, then rubbed most of it off & added highlights with White Fire Treasure Gold. I gave them a good buffing for a nice shine.

I assembled & glued down my art doll as shown in the photo, then finished off by adding some eyelets & chain to hang my piece. 

Join us again tomorrow night when our last 3UP sters (there is a twist to the finale) share their projects with us.
