A Forgotten Piece by Amanda Southern


Hi Everyone

I have had such a hectic week this last week which has meant no free time for making something new, however it gives me the chance to share with you a piece I made for one of the Hochanda shows from 2016 where That’s Crafty! launched their range of Triptych’s. This is what I made using the Acrylic Arch Triptych that I forgot to share.

Here’s What I Did:

The best thing about working on acrylic is that you can work on both sides and you just have to work out the order you layer things up. 

I started by stamping the fabulous women of Lynne Perrella from PaperArtsy onto the front of the acrylic using black Stazon ink. Onto the reverse side of the acrylic I then stencilled White Fire gold paint through several of That’s Crafty! Dinky stencils. Once the paint was totally dry I then applied several different colours of alcohol inks over the top keeping the colour lighter where the faces were that I had stamped on the other side. 

I then painted the White Fire paint over the entire back to give not only a neat finish but also block the transparency of the alcohol inks. Working back on the front I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed it in gold embossing powder. I added further embossed gold detail using some pattern stamps.  I edged all around the acrylic pieces using a gold pen. On the front of the acrylic I added colour to the cheeks of the women using red paint and some red Stickles glitter glue.

The Triptych is then held together with metal rings that come with the kit, unfortunately I didn’t have those when I made it.

What I Used:

That’s Crafty! Dinky Stencils – Moroccan, Floral & Decorative
Alcohol Inks – Various Colours
Pattern Stamps from my stash
Sentiment is a Unity stamp from my stash

I’ll see you all next Tuesday
