Her Secret Is Patience by Lynne Moncrieff



This stamp has always been a favourite of mine and one which when I first bought it I seemed to use constantly. It has been fun inking her up once again to create this Renaissance style panel.


Martha Stewart Paints:- Putty, Rose Chrome and Rose Gold
EcoGreen Crafts:- Pure Copper Acrylic
DecoArt One Step Crackle 
Indigoblu Slap It On
Stencil Stipple Brush
White Tissue Paper
Canvas Board
Extras:- button, torn lace, seam binding, vintage trim and sentiment (this piece was a partially piece of torn sentiment from another project), crumpled found paper (another leftover piece from another project – it has been painted with gesso and Twinkling H20s)



The time consuming part of this panel is the paint application to achieve texture and a timeworn appearance but it is also the most fun part.

Achieve texture with Gesso and paints, manipulating with palette knife and heat gun.

Remove some of the paint from the central area, this is where Cosmos will sit. 

Once the texture has been achieved ink up Cosmos with StazOn and stamp onto tissue paper. Adhere to the panel with Slap It On, be generous with this application.

Leave to dry. 

When dry stipple more paint onto the panel.

Randomly stamp CI-406 with StazOn. 

Gather various trims, a button, a piece of torn sentiment and crumbled found paper which had Gesso and Twinkling H20s applied to it.


Until next week,
