Flying Free by Lynne Moncrieff


Today I am sharing two ATCs which were made at the beginning of the year when the That’s Crafty! ATC storage units and That's Crafty! Surfaces were showcased on HOCHANDA.


PaperArtsy Stamp Sets - JOFY 12, 13 and 14
That's Crafty! Dinky Stencils - Abstract Stones (TC017), Hole In Wall (TC066)
Gesso White and Clear
Rusty Tin Wire



Apply Frescos and Frank Garcia powders to ATC. Stamp dragonfly with Gesso (working on craft sheet I applied the gesso to the stamp with a foam brush before stamping). Loosely paint over the stamped image and highlight with white paint pen. Stamp mesh with Gesso and small circles with Fresco chalk paint, highlighting with white paint pen. Apply Grungepaste to Abstract Stones stencil. When dry, after mixing a Frank Garcia powder with Gesso, apply to the stencilled area. A final touch, create coils from rusty tin wire, adhering to ATC with Gel Medium.


Stamp butterfly onto ATC. Loosely, highlight with white paint pen and Fresco chalk paint.  With paint pen, again in a loose fashion, scribble lines. Apply clear Gesso to panel. Apply Grunge Paste to Hole in Wall stencil. When dry, apply Frescos to the bricks, I worked with Antarctic, Lake Wanaka, Toffee and Caramel. 

Until next time,

  1. Very delicate and, yet, very urban decay at the same time. A great combination to show off the soft colors you used. What a great feat you have accomplished, Lynne! Dragonflies and butterflies are such a favorite of mine and these images are so unique. I'll have to have a closer look at those! LOL Thank you for sharing, Lynne. inkybru xx
