Flower Fantasy Shelter by Dorthe Hansen


Hello friends, I`m happy to be back, again, this time showing one of 
the little uprights in MDF and how I used it.

The panel and foot first had green tulle (could be any kind of thin fabric or even paint)
adhered and then I used the stencil on top left side of panel to create light and interest.
I used the Texture Paste and let it stay white when it had dried. 

The fun and so sweet new flower girl from Melina`s sheet, was
stamped onto copy paper and then adhered to thicker card stock. She was 
stamped with Archival Sepia and then painted with a mix of white and
a tiny bit of blue, to give her the softest tone of blue. Then I went over her with white and tried
to make the paint stand out from her, to create like little raised spots.

A mushroom from a Bits and Pieces sheet and a Funky Flower, too, were painted with 
the soft blue-brown mixed with white and a little Mustard Yellow, mixed with Bright Red.
When dry, both were given raised spots too and I draw details onto the mushroom,
with a brown fineliner. Miss Tulip got yellow cheeks and red lips and adhered to the panel.
On top of her I added left over scraps of tissue, in green tones and went over it with the
mustard/red mix. 

To add the mushroom to the foot I adhered a piece of cardboard to its back and let it form an l-shape by bending it so I was able to adhere the bended part to the foot. The flower was adhered to the right side panel and on the foot. Fianlly I adhered bark pieces, from nature.
I always collect pieces from the ground, when walking :-)

Here the sun shines beautifully today and even it is ice cold it gives new hopes, seeing it on the sky.
Have a wonderful week all.

Hugs and love
