Looking Cute by Helen Chilton


I'm working on acrylic this week - always like this surface as you can get multiple layers built up.

I've started off with a little AALL&Create set and stamped in black Archival.

Then flip it over and paint on the back - you might need two layers.

When that's dry block all the painting in with a coat of white.

After that I rummaged through my stash drawer and found this odd bit of background I'd made for something else. I added a bit of script to it.

Glue the acrylic to the background, hiding the glue under the painted areas and then add highlights.

That's Crafty! Multi Surface Paints

That's Crafty! 6ins x6ins Stencil - Net - TC60027
Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Sprays

These little stamp sets are really useful and fun to work with. There's quite a range to choose from - figures, owls, backgrounds etc - and they come in at a good price. If you don't want to make your own background, use some patterned paper instead.

Hope you liked my little cutie!
