I've just spent the weekend at a retreat and although things didn't go entirely to plan
(ie fell down a step and broke a bone in my foot)
I had a wonderful crafty time.
This is one of the LOs I created. Simple but effective I think.
I started by using my brayer and rolling on a couple of different coloured Dina Wakley acrylic paints in Turquoise with a bit of Elephant mixed in. I then used the edge of my palette knife to add some lines with my left over paint and sponged some black paint through an old stencil. I think this was a TCW one but this Kinder Kreations Skelton Tree stencil would be perfect as well.
I added some stitching (machine and hand), some wood veneer snowflakes from my stash and some punched ones , then my title with some American Crafts foam thickers.
As a finishing touch I added some more colour using a Stabilo pencil which I activated using my water brush pen.
Hope you've been inspired.
'Til next time
