This fortnight’s challenge at That Craft Place is sponsored by All Dressed Up! I love this image called Looking Gorgeous. Prince Charming’s printer was out of black ink when I printed it and so I ended up doing a no lines colouring thing without planning to! lol
I used DecoArts paints in browns to paint the frame. I then used a Marianne die to make a paper mask that I sponged gold paint through. The same gold paint was used on the cheesecloth (lower left corner). I pulled out a number of white flowers from my stash (most from Lisa’s though) and started spraying them with Dylusions to match the colours I used colouring. This worked way better than I imagined! Love them and finally used the chocolate brown dylusions! lol There’s a bit of burlap hiding behind the bow. I love the ribbons from the shop…they gave me some lovely texture. I did dab a bit of gold paint on the one to tie it all together. I always struggle to use flowers (but not in the buying part) on my projects, but I’m rather chuffed with how this all turned out.
I learned a few things whilst making this…mostly about glue! lol I used DecoArts Faux Finishing Medium to glue the ribbons, cheesecloth, and burlap to the frame. This stuff is fantastic! It dries clear and it’s perfect for ribbon and fabric. The other fab glue was Collall’s Decopage. I used this thick glue for the flowers…it smooshes (technical word) around the 3D object and holds it in place.
What’s your favourite glue and why?
