"Hi everyone, Penny here and welcome back for my third and last project for this week. Full marks for perseverance! I have had a ball creating my first three projects as Guest Designer".
Leandra claims that Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic paint will cover just about anything, so I thought I would put it to the test.
We have a plentiful supply of these on this small island so without too much worry about coastal erosion I brought home a few smooth stones.
I chose this one and following the natural shape for an outline, painted two coats of Sherbet. No problem. Darcy's stamps lend themselves well to my 3-D ideas this week and this time it's a flower garden theme.
Set EDY05 and minis EM03, EM05. I stamped a selection of flowers and butterflies using black Archival Ink on Smoothy White Stamping Card stock, then a few more flowers and a flourish on tissue paper.
I used marker pens to colour the tissue paper (leaves not needed). I cut them out and used gloss medium to "merge" the tissue with the painted stone surface, and then gave the whole thing another coat of medium.
I really like this as it is and you could leave it but ........... well it's not really 3-D is it?
So having coloured and cut out the card flowers and butterflies, I began to build.
"So there it is. I hope you have enjoyed this introduction to my way of thinking, and I look forward to seeing how you choose to take it further". Back next month ...... Until then!
Leandra Says: OMG are you sure its not a special pet rock! How wonderful would a few of these look, great use of colour, and so dimensional! I love it/ him/her! LOL
Gillian Says: GORGEOUS Oh la la ... this simply "rocks" (no pun intended). The colours and design are simply divine Penny. Huge thanks for a week of inspiring projects, look forward to next month.
