Freedom by Lynne Moncrieff


Have been playing with one of my all-time favourite Dinky Stencils, Bricks and one of That’s Crafty’s Alterable Surfaces.


Prima Finnabair Cling Stamp Sets – Rust and Dust, Don’t Forget To Fly
Staz-on Timber Brown
Ice Resin*
Baby Wipes
Extras:- Muslin, button, cotton cord, tree bark, vintage French book text, re-cycled packing paper, stained lace and resin paper (*another time I will focus on resin paper as here I only included scraps)


Cut panel to required size before applying paints with a baby wipe, aiming for a textured appearance. 

My tub of Grunge Paste had gone a little bit gungy due to the lid not being properly closed (I know, naughty me!!!) however I liked the effect because the result is very textural which I really like. Does this mean I need to always be careless with my tub of Grunge Paste?!!  Apply the Grunge Paste to the Dinky Stencil, leaving to dry.

Apply paints (excluding Toffee) to vintage book text. Once dry, stamp butterfly. Ink edges and slightly curl them upwards. Continue stamping, this time one of the Rust and Dust stamps and sentiment onto re-cycled brown packing paper. 

Gather items - I tend to incorporate pieces of this and that left over from previous projects. For this collage I incorporated:- tea stained lace, the tree bark which I had misted with Antique Linen, scraps of resin paper and muslin stained with dissolved walnut ink crystals.

Adhere all to panel, including button, with Gel Medium.

Until next time,
