An Invincible Summer by Lynne Moncrieff


I have been playing with the beautiful new Dinky Stencil Snowflake Background and a white/greyboard panel.

The Snowflake Background Dinky Stencil is beautiful and I was so impressed, with it being highly detailed, that the results with the embossing paste were so crisp.

Extras:- Vintage crochet (cut from old doily), guipure lace, rusty tin wire, buttons and found paper (I used old paper packaging)
Substitute Idea-ology Salvaged Doll for the Prima Relics and Artifacts resin figure.


Apply Champagne acrylic to panel, heat setting before randomly applying Snowflake Background stencil with clear embossing paste. Once dry mist panel with Distress Stain Sprays followed by applying random patches of Crackle Paste. Next, apply Rust acrylic, focusing on the Crackle Paste areas, before misting the panel again with the Distress Stain Sprays. When happy with the colour, apply Pearl Glaze, focusing on the snowflakes. The last touch is to randomly stamp Messy onto the panel.

Lay cardstock, bark icon, lace and figure onto a piece of white paper (I re-cycled some white heavy weight paper packaging) and apply Distress Stain Sprays. Stamp sentiment onto the cardstock, cutting into long strips. Onto the white paper, which will now have been coloured by the sprays, stamp Messy. Adhere torn pieces of the stamped Messy script onto the panel.  


Layer the figure to another piece of the Messy script, adhering to the bark icon and crochet element. To complete, adhere the sentiment with silicone glue and sew buttons to the stained lace, adhering to bottom edge. Create hanging by punching a hole and threading through rusty tin wire. 

Until next time,
