Dare to Dream Like No Other by Dorthe Hansen


How are you all, I hope your weekend was wonderful!!


I’m back this Monday, with my sample for the blog, here at That`s Blogging Crafty! with a hanger, created onto one of the great MDF surfaces. 








I started painting gesso to the whole surface, making texture in some places, by filling the brush with lots of gesso. While wet, I placed a piece of crumpled tissue paper on the bottom to create even more texture.

When all had dried, the beautiful Chestnut Brown paint was mixed with white and painted on the whole surface and after dry, I used the Sparklers Spray Red to spray this wonderful luminescent colour to the lower part of the panel.

My flower was created with 3 petal pieces from the small and big Wildflowers sheets. I painted directly onto the greyboard, with the pink Shimmer Paint and mixed with White Multi Surface paint directly on the flower petals. After dried, I added the Chestnut Brown to all edges, with a dry brush and smeared it with a finger. A piece of lace was dyed with Raspberry Infusions, attached to the top of number 2 petals and on top of the lace the tiny petal, made more interesting with gesso, to create texture before it was painted with the pink paint.







To give the feeling of love and dreams, I stamped Donna’s wonderful heart balloon directly onto the panel and then, onto a piece of brown paper bag from my stash, first painted twice with the Pink Shimmer. The heart was torn from the paper bag and added on top of the already stamped balloon.

I love Tim Holz Paper Dolls and here obviously we needed a happy couple. They both had a tiny bit of paint smeared to their clothes and a pink button was adhered to coat and waistcoat.





Beautiful dyed lace and a piece of fabric from my stash were adhered to the bottom – brown and pink paint blended and smeared onto the edges, the flower was attached and got a stem, from one of the other wild flowers on the sheet and onto tissue paper, I stamped Lynne’s wonderful Affirmation, adhered it to the top panel and the lovely couple to the right.

Lastly I made two holes with the Crop A Dile and for the Sari Silk ribbon, to make a hanger.

Thank you for following me to here, I wish you all a wonderful day!!

Hugs and love, 

Dorthe

  5. Love how this all matches Dorthe, the colour combo works so well together. Even down to the finer embellishments with their matching buttons, what a sweet attention to detail. The texture using the thick Gesso & adding paper is so effective. A beautiful piece.. Hugs Tracey xx
