Its pouring down with rain here at the moment - and that makes perfect crafting weather! So I have managed to complete my latest project.
Inspired by ABC Blog (where I won an Honorary Mention for my Summer Romance Project - thank you!!!) the latest challenge is Making Magic
|Anything But Cute Challenge Blogspot|
So I have made a Book of Magic and using the mood board above as a guide
|I gessoed the front cover and then used texture|
paste through a word stencil, then glued lots of
die cut letters on randomly to give the appearance
of the spells spilling from a basket.
|Then it was sprayed Gold and embellished with|
Viva Decor Inka Gold in different colours.
|The Wizard is a vintage postcard which I further |
|The leaves and flowers have been softened with|
Inka Gold and the glass front is from an old clock
|Butterflies were added to give more interest. |
If you look closely you can also see the metal
words which were gessoed and sprayed gold
for further texture and interest.
|Ribbons added along the wire spine|
Well thats the theory anyway, if its anything like me trying to find my doorkeys in my handbag she hasnt got a hope in hell!!
Because this also has a lot of text in it - from the stencils to the words and letters I am going to be brave and enter this into the
