Into The Wind by Lynne Moncrieff



This week I am sharing a collage panel or is it assemblage... sometimes I get so confused with labels!!!  It is what it is, an MDF tag layered to MDF panel.

I know it might seem like easy talk, being such a long-time D.T. member for That's Crafty! but I truly believe their MDF surfaces are "must-haves".  They are such a reliable substrate to work on no matter what media is applied, they are always up to the task and I speak with confidence because I am one who applies multiple layers to projects.

On this project, I sneaked in a product which should arrive within the next few weeks....acrylic wax.

Prepare both tag and panel with Gesso, by applying it randomly, it creates interesting layer of texture.  Once dry, spray Lustre sprays, allowing to drip downwards, allowing it to pool. For the tag, avoid heavy spray application on area where stamped butterfly will appear.  When this layer has dried, time to dip into the fabulous Texture Sand Paste, apply randomly, leaving to dry before applying more spray colour.

Wrap nettle yarn around bottom edge of tag before adhering tag to panel with That's Crafty! Multi-Purpose Craft Adhesive.

Stamp butterfly onto used tea bag. Adhere to tag with acrylic wax. Once dry, randomly stamp the grungy line from the Affirmation stamp set around the butterfly. Apply the smallest touches of Texture Sand Paste and only the lightest scattering of 13arts gravel, blending the butterfly image onto the tag as a whole.  Direct sprays onto the new textured areas.

Next, brush acrylic wax over the focal image.

Onto tea bag paper stained with Walnut Ink Crystals, stamp Affirmation and PaperArtsy EEA  onto a second piece, layering to tag.

Onto scraps of tea bag paper and handmade paper, spray Blackberry and Lustre Aubergine, layering above stamped butterfly.

Adhere twig to upper edge of panel, with the addition of a button, threaded with the same yarn wrapped around the tag. Tuck a feather beneath the button.

Thank you for your visit.
