Don’t be Pushed…… by Amanda Southern


Hi Everyone

I have had absolutely no crafting time this week so would like to share with you another of the samples that I created to support the recent shows on Hochanda TV.

Here’s What I Did:

I first painted the 8” x 8” white/greyboard with White That’s Crafty! paint. I then stencilled the Purple paint through the Mandala stencil. On top of that I used the new 2 part Sugar Skull stencil and I first used the skull shape and stencilled through it, onto an 8” x 8” white/greyboard piece using That’s Crafty! Light Texture Paste. 

Once that was dry I stencilled through the detail parts of the skull again using Light Texture Paste. I then gave all the skull area a covering of White paint. I then hand painted the details parts using a selection of That’s Crafty! paints. 

To finish I then drew around all the parts of the Mandala stencil using a 2mm Liquid Chrome Pen, using the broader chrome pen I went around the actual skull as well. I added the words using one of the stamps from Inspirational Quotes 2 and heat embossing in black. To finish I just added some purple thread that I had and that was knotted through the holes in the 8” x 8” board.

Here’s What I Used:

I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
The blog is having a couple of weeks off from the end of this week
so I will see you all in 2018.
