Whisper by Lynne Moncrieff



This week I have one of the large MDF Rounds to share, where I layered the beautiful leaf stamp from a That's Crafty! Textures Collection stamp set, to create a focal.


That's Crafty! Surfaces MDF Round 8"
That's Crafty! Flat Matte Spray: Basil, Bluebell, Aqua
That's Crafty! Surfaces Mixed Media Paper/Card Kit (Rice Paper)
That's Crafty! Clear Stamp Set Textures Collection Set 3
That's Crafty! Clear Stamp Set Lynne's Affirmations Set 10
Memento Ink Tuxedo Black 
Gel Medium
Sewing Machine
Handmade Paper


Spray Rice Paper with the Flat Matte Sprays (the paper I used was previously under-paper when using the sprays on another project) allowing to dry completely. Try not to move the Rice Paper when it is wet as it is very fragile in this state, allowing to dry makes it easier to work with. Apply Gel Medium to the MDF Round, taking the Medium to the very edges. Place the stained Rice Paper onto the panel, gently smoothing to ensure good adhesion. Leave to dry.

Stain enough Rice Paper to cover the MDF surface and allow for extra, for the focal image. Also staining pieces of handmade paper, book text and found paper (piece torn from cardboard box packaging).

The paper in my project has a mottled brown area, this is a result of previously having laid rusted items to dry on the paper.

Stamp leaf onto stained Rice Paper, tearing around image. Continue to stamp the same leaf onto other pieces of the stained Rice Paper. Layer them and machine stitch down centre of leaf. Machine stitch piece of stained handmade paper and other pieces of stained papers. Adhere those pieces to the panel.

Ruffle the edges of the stamped focal.

Leave tail ends of thread to hang loose.

Stamp Affirmation onto stained handmade paper, discarding the word "secrets".

Until next time,
