Find Your Own Wings by Donna Gray

Hello everyone,

Donna here today and I’m using one of the new Dina Wakley stamps. Oh how I jumped for joy when I saw this set, its fab!!

Here’s What I Did:


I used a PaperArtsy greyboard for this (paper side up). Next I covered it in a coat of gesso in order for me to apply various Gelatos and then spritz with water to blend them in.
At this point, I did actually use some Faber Castell Bead and Glitter Gel through a stencil but I made a bad mistake…..I used the heat gun on it……don’t do that! It dries all opaque and horrid, so I had to scrape it all off, although it does leave a nice sparkle in the background now!
Next, a spritz of the wonderful DecoArt Media mister in an appropriate funky colour and some more Dina Wakley stamps for the background. The little splodge type one is a Kaisercraft one.
To finish, I stamped the new Dina stamp on a piece of thick card, covered with Glossy Accents, allowed to dry overnight and then placed it in the freezer for a few minutes, then ‘cracked’ it. I then decided to add the wings from the Carabelle angel set as I thought she needed some wings….well don’t we all…. and I then used another Dina stamp for the sentiment.



Hope you like it
