For this MDF triptych I wanted to play with texture. It wasn’t until completion, when I stepped back to wonder if any other little bits of this and that were required that it dawned on me, surely this colour palette was influenced by Turkish Delight!!! The one smothered in milk chocolate, was a favourite chocolate bar of myself and my sister, back in the day!
Infusions:- Blackcurrant, Violet Storms, Royal Blood, Black Knight
UHU Glue Stick
Prima Dresden Trim (substitute with die-cut PaperArtsy Metal Card)
Extras:- Deli wrap, sari ribbon, calico fabric
Apply Gesso to all panels followed by Infusions which were generously misted with water, allowing colours to blend. Stamp LPC stamp onto tissue paper. Tear and adhere to panel with glue stick. Once dry, stamp Old Town stamp onto panels, randomly.
Apply clear texture paste through Dinky Stencil, once again, applying randomly, a favourite way of mine to work. Leave to dry. The clear paste draws the Infusions to it, creating a beautiful effect but if you prefer to have control over colour, then I wouldn’t advise working in this way, the results are too unpredictable.
Apply the Infusions to cardstock, sari ribbon, calico fabric and deli wrap. Once dry, tear and distress all pieces. Stamp bunting onto the prepared cardstock. Fussy cut, ink edges and adhere to top of main image. Have fun layering all the other pieces that have been stained.
Finally, to bind the panels, thread stained sari ribbon through the holes and lastly, roll two pieces of stained calico and adhere to front panels, to give the impression of door handles.
Until next week when I hope to share another of my MDF Triptych samples.
