Animail Friends by Samantha Read


Hello, I do hope as you read this you are keeping warm, I often think of wild animals during the winter months and wonder how they cope... but these cute little animals look very happy indeed with the arrival of Spring flowers!

What I did

When I began this project I really didn't know what I wanted to be doing so just began by stamping the animals on white card and colouring in with Prismacolour pencils, when I finally decided what I wanted to make I then covered a That's Crafty! MDF Chunkie with a couple of coats of white gesso and created the background using a Lindy's Gang Magical Shaker, some sequin stars and silver gilding flakes. Also adding texture and contrast using Texture Sand Paste and a couple of AALL & Create stencils.

To finish I added some paper flowers pained with some Gold Interference paint with some tiny beads and glitter in the centre and a couple of postage stamps.

What I used

Lindy's Stamp Gang Magical Shaker (the one I used is no longer available but follow this link for more options :) ).

(Extras: Mirrored stars, small metal stars, sequin stars, silver gilding flakes, beads, glitter and postage stamps).

I do hope you like it, thanks for looking and I wish you a lovely day, Sam xx
