Colour your Magical World by Dorthe Hansen


Welcome to my turn to post, as Monday has luckily showed up again.

I started this winter wonderland creation, using a greyboard panel. It was painted with Multi Surface paints -Teal mixed with White and Metallic Ice Blue. After dry, I stenciled the Bare Tree stencil, using Distress Oxide Iced Spruce, left to dry and in between, run the butterflies through my Big Shot using Sizzix Embossing Folder Paisley. 

They were painted with the mixed Teal and White, dried and Ice blue gave the detail of shine. The wild flowers Bits and Pieces, were also painted with Ice Blue all over  and then I added Crackle paint to the center of them and also to the background panel, in a few places to create texture. Onto the tree, now dry, I also smeared crackle paint to the trunk. 

After dried, I added the Teal paint to the background crackle, wiped it off, added again and repeated till I was satisfied with the result. The flowers and tree trunk had a drop of Antiquing Cream added to the crackles, which also after some seconds, was wiped away with a damp cloth.

White glitter was added to the butterflies and flowers, using the Multi Purpose Craft Adhesive as binder and left to dry

Onto the tree - I added details with both white paint and thinned Chestnut Brown to create a shadow effect. I love the Snowflake stencil and it was used to create light spots onto the panel in some places using the new Texture Paste.

After all had dried, butterflies and flowers were also given detail using the brown paint and a fine liner. They were adhered to the panel, with the Multi Purpose Craft Adhesive.  I used two “berries” from my stash and wound metallic flower thread around to form the feelers to the butterfly. Lynne’s Affirmation was stamped onto a piece of brown paper bag from my stash, cut out and the perimeter lined with the brown fine liner.

To create a winter landscape to the bottom panel, I found a piece of white old lace, cones I glittered with silver and another silvery “branch” all from my stash. If you don`t collect cones like I do, you can also create texture and winter landscape, using the remnants from the Bits and Pieces sheets. The tiny rests from flowers and leaves, look amazing after having been painted white, glittered and stacked along the bottom panel.

A piece of Sari Silk finish the creation, after making a hole in the top, to maybe hang the panel.

Thank you friends, for visiting and for being with me to the end of my post –
To all of you a wonderful new week.

Hugs and love
