Distress Oxides –

Broken China, Wild Honey, Carved Pumpkin,
Salty Ocean Distress Ink and Oxide

What I Did
I have used the Drop stencil and ran Salty Ocean Distress ink through it over the page.
I have smooched Wild Honey and Carved Pumpkin on a stamp pad and spritzed with water and smudged over the page.,
After gessoing the butterfly and the Love wooden word I have stamped randomly using the Marquet Stamp, then just used a random script and criss cross stamp for effect on the page.

I have then arranged all my pieces onto the page as I would like them and adhered to the page using gel glue, I finished by just smudging stickle glue over a few random areas.

Thank you for looking

See you again next Monday!

Follow Your Dreams – Canvas and Video

Hi there, it Aly here for my first week as Guest Design Team Member for June 2019, I was thrilled to bits when Louise asked me as she is like my “Mixed Media Hero” I have watched all her videos and tutorials and I have learnt so much from her, its just a case of putting it all into practice in my projects and I hope I do her proud! For my first project I have created a small canvas.
