We're kicking off the second week of the current challenge over at Frilly and Funkie. Pamellia is our hostess and here's what she has to say:
I have chosen the theme Things with Wings for this one. I would like to
see anything that has wings, use your imagination... just make sure your
project is shabby chic or vintage in style.
I had one of these little Artemio wooden frames left and decided to use it to showcase a butterfly. I started with Tim Holtz Industrious Stickers around the edge.
I painted it with Gesso then glued Art Stones and Mini Art Stones around the frame.
I'm afraid the process over took me and I didn't capture the rest of the steps before the finished project ! I used Acrylic paint to build up layers and then used Prima Art Alchemy paints just over the Art Stones and then on the inside of the recess.
The backgound for the butterfly is white card that's had the Prima paints dabbed on to it using a baby wipe. Then I stamped the Tim Holtz Newsprint stamp over it . The butterfly is by Prima and it's also been painted with the Prima Art Alchemy paints.
To make the frame a little more shabby I used Blackberry Prima Art Alchemy paint and watered it down and painted it around the textured areas. The final touch was a chit chat sticker that I dabbed Blackberry around the edge.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and do make sure you hop over to the Frilly and Funkie blog to see the rest of the DT's projects.
