Dance of the Dragonflies by Tracey Fairgrieve


Good Morning, Afternoon, Evening everyone, where ever you are in the world I hope you are keeping well?  It's my turn to share a little That's Crafty! Creativity with you all and today i'm showcasing a project using new paints and surfaces from the That's Crafty! range.

Here in words and pictures is my Dance of the Dragonflies Panel:

Covering a 4.5" x 9" White/Greyboard panel in white Gesso I pushed crackle paste through the Abstract Stones Dinky stencil randomly around the board. When dry I brushed Blue and Turquoise Shimmer Paints all over the panel drying each coat with a heat tool. I repeated the process again and wiped back areas of the paint to expose the colours underneath using a wet wipe.

I stamped script from the Textures Stamp Set 2 using Versafine and heat embossed using Stampendous Gold. Pink Shimmer paint was dabbed in areas around the panel and heat set with added embossing powder. 

The wings of the Dragonfly Greyboard Bits and Pieces have been stamped using the wings from Lynnes Affirmations Set 2 and heat embossed. The bodies have been painted with shimmer paints and roughly wire wrapped to add interest. Gilding wax has been rubbed across the wings to bring their delicate detail out.

Antique Gold paint has been delicately dabbed in between the crackled areas, around the Dragonflies and the panels edge. The Dragonflies have been glued on to the shimmering background completing My Dance of the Dragonflies Panel... 

Thank you for taking time to visit and check out all the wonderful new products from That's Crafty! I look forward to sharing more with you the same time next week. Until then Take Care and Stay Safe everyone.

Creative Hugs Tracey xx
