Grungy Letter

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Well Saturday again, and you all know what that means, yes you got it Housework!  Well it needs to be done so before I get stuck in I have a canvas for you today, I started this at Kath's on Wednesday and finished it yesterday.  I am quite pleased with this and how it turned out.  I hope you do too.


Recipe 

1. I first painted the canvas with Pebeo Gesso and once dried I painted with cream, using Imagination Crafts Grungy Letter Stencil spread textured glass bead gel over and left to dry.
2. I made a paste using modelling paste and copper acrylic paint, I then spread the paste over the Time and Motion stencil leaving it quite thick to add dimension.
3. On white card I stamped the Ink post and feather from Sheena Douglass' A little bit Magical stamp set with DI Vintage Photo and using my waterbrush dragged the colour across.
4. To finish off I have used Cast Bronze Metallic Gilding wax around the edges and onto the wooden embellishments, then added the clock and cogs which was from my stash.


Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
