My Head in the Sky by Melina Dahl


We are very excited to announce another 2 additions to our DT - Melina Dahl and Bev Hilton who are also joining us to showcase That's Crafty! own brand products. We'd like to wish Melina and Bev a very warm welcome to the team.

Today I am happy to share with you my very first blog post as a That's Crafty! brand DT member.

I have used:

Wire and Glue

I started by painting the MDF surface with white, blue and green acrylic paint. I dabbed it on with my brush to get a light, dreamy look to the background.
I stamped the images from the Serena set on watercolour paper and fussy cut them out. The wings from Lynne´s Affirmations Set I stamped with clear embossing ink, used white embossing powder, heat set it and then fussy cut. Serena´s dress I just drew on a scrap piece of watercolor paper and cut out.
I coloured all the images with Distress markers and Distress ink pads. For the hearts and leaves I used them as watercolour using a water brush. I added colour through Dinky stencil 011 on the hair and through the 8x8 stencil 8005 on the dress. On the dress I added some doodling in black and white.

When all the pieces where coloured and dried I started to assemble my piece. I stamped Serena directly on the MDF board to get the details and then added my paper pieces.

On the bottom MDF part, I used a pokey tool to make holes and used a small amount of glue to my wire pieces and pushed them into place. I then glued the hearts and leaves in place.

And last I stamped the quote from Lynne´s Affirmations set 2 and made the black border using stencil WS004.
