Summertime! by Dorthe Hansen


Hello dear friends, Monday is here and so am I with this little creation on a white/greyboard panel, which was after adding Gesso, sprayed with Infusions, Slime and a little Raspberry.

But before spraying, I put down one of the beautiful clock embellishments on top of the gessoed panel and pressed it tight to the surface, while spraying  the Slime Infusion. 

Letting it dry totally, I prepared the flower embellishment, also first with Gesso and then using brush markers, I painted them. I cut off a piece of the flowers, to make them fit on the panel.

After the panel had dried, I added 3 small hearts from the Dinky Stencil Hearts, with texture paste which, when dry, was also coloured with brush markers.

The last step was dying a piece of lace and sari silk, together with one of the small wheels from the clock embellishment sheet with Infusions Raspberry and to add two white old buttons and write summer time“ on the right side of the creation.

I hope you enjoy a new fresh and lovely week, all. Thank you so much for visiting.
