Summer Lovin’ Hanging by Mandy C


What I used:

Old book Page


·       Firstly, stamp the Lynne Perrella image onto some paper/card. Colour and then tear around the edge once dry. 

·       On your book page, use Dylusions spray and Spiced Marmalade Distress paint. Leave to dry. Once dry glue the Lynn Perrella image onto the paper, tear around the paper.

·       Stamp with Archival ink onto card, using the CI butterflies. Colour with watercolour pencils and then cut out and glue ~ the top butterfly rests on the ladies chin. Put to one side.


For the background:

·       Take a piece of card. Mine is 16cm x 9.5cm.

·       Using the Distress paints in Bundled Sage and Broken China, dab over the background card. I blended with my fingers, it gives a more subtle blend. Blast it with a heat tool.

·       Use the cathedral window mask, and the chalk ink… spritz through the mask. Dry with a heat tool.

·       The paler green is at the bottom of the hanging, holding the hanging upside down and using the Dylusions, gently spray the ink onto the bottom and allow the Dylusions to run down the hanging. Mop up excess with some kitchen towel. Dry with a heat tool.

·       Take the script stamp and the pumpkin StazOn… randomly stamp over the background. Do the same with the crackle and the raspberry Adirondack ink.

·       Use some punchinella and the Spiced Marmalade, paint to put random dots over the background, and then using the checkerboard from the Bo Bunny set and the Picked Raspberry Distress paint. Dry.

·       Using the Peeled Paint Distress paint and your finger, run a bit of green around the edges to bring all the colours together.

·       Edge with your Archival… it’s quite wet and I rubbed mine into the edge.

·       Using Cosmic Shimmer glue, stick your Lynne Perrella image into the centre.

·       Leave as is or make into a hanging like I have with a hole punch and some ribbon!

  1. Utterly lovely Mandy. Like the hint of the cathedral window on the background - those stencils go so well with the Lynne P style.
