Perfect Life

Naughty dt member alert!  I’m alive!  I’m also a bit under the weather and haven’t had the motivation to blog.  I have, however, been able to craft most days and have lots to show you all over the next few weeks.

This is my project for the new challenge over at That Craft Place.  Our theme is Anything Goes/Mother’s Day.

Toad & MagicI’m well pleased with how this turned out!  My living room is ecru and red and this goes perfectly in it.  A while ago I won a challenge and the prize was these scrummy bits from Tando.  As soon as I opened the package I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them!  I added some stucco texture paste to the frame and clock in random places.  I then painted them grey and black with the add dab of green to make them look aged.  I highlighted the texture with cosmic guilding waxes in gold, green, and autumn bronze too.  The canvas is done in various shades of decoart reds.  Then I sponged black, grey, and green paint through a doily stencil.  The cirlces and lines have just black paint to make it a bit different to the doily parts.  The sentiment, splatter and flower are from PaperArtsy.  The white and black flowers were made with my cammie…so easy and I’ve started to make more! lol

Paper, paints, texture paste, ink, cameo, stamps, and stencils all from That Craft Place.  The confidence to tackle this also came from all my interactions with people associated somehow with the shop! 😉
