Hello and welcome to my first post of 2016 ! Today we're kicking off the second week of the Frilly and Funkie challenge which is Holiday Hues. Now I know in the UK we don't celebrate Thanksgiving but the colours associated with this holiday are my favourites so these are the holiday hues that I chose.
I'm keeping the 'how to' high level as I'll be back later this month with a step by step of how this journal cover came together. I've used lots of layers starting with dictionary paper and then acrylic paint.
I've used the Tim Holtz stencil on opposite corners using the bumping technique and then stamped the script using a Tim Holtz stamp and Potting Soil Archival ink.
The Impression Obsession poppies stamp was used and the images stamped with Potting Soil Archival ink and they've then been painted with acrylic paint. I've used the Wendy Vecchi Artful Life set for the large flowers. They've been painted with acrylic paint, cut out and layered up.
Impression Obsession do some fabulous sentiment stamps and the one I've used on this cover is one of my favourites. To finish I used Wendy's gold embossing paste and rubbed it around the edges with my finger, which is one of the techniques that Wendy shared at her workshop in London last year.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and do make sure you hop over to the Frilly and Funkie blog and check out the rest of the DT's fabulous projects.
