Hi there, I’ve got some altered artwork to share this week with one of the lovely new substrate items now available in the shop, this being a door hanger using one of the fab new Dinky Stencils for the background.
Ranger Stickles Glitter Glue – Crystal
Scrap of Blue Cardstock
Watercolour Pencils – I used Prima Julie Nutting Hair and Skin Tones
Highly Pigmented Colouring Pencils such as Spectrum Noir
Soft Drawing Pencil
Paint the door hanger with a couple of coats of the Vintage Lace acrylic paint and allow to dry thoroughly – this won’t take long. Next use the stencil to add showers of stars all over the surface with the blue paint. I found it best to use the multi surface paint because it gave good coverage over the fresco finish acrylic.
When the paint was completely dry, I painted glitter glue on the largest stars to add a bit of sparkle – I wanted to make my door hanger quite girly as I had a little girl in mind when the idea came to me.
Stamp the angel and the wings on stamping paper using the grey ink and colour with the pencils. I used the lovely Prima Julie Nutting pencils for her skin and hair as these have gorgeous colours in the set. I used the pigmented pencils for the wings and feathers on her dress using light strokes in shades of pink, blue and mauve.
I used a lace border die to cut a border from blue card. I covered the border with embossing ink and then heat embossed it with the crystal powder for even more sparkle. I glued this at the base of the door hanger to form a pretty edge.
I finished off the hanger by adding the angel and her wings with foam pads for a slightly 3D effect.
Have a great weekend and see you next week.
