Good morning all,
Elaine here again bringing you an altered initial for a beyond the page project.
Firstly I took the letter (which I purchased from a well known High Street chain of craft shops) and covered it in White Gesso (don’t worry if it bubble like mine did. It will pull back tight once it’s dry)
I then added some torn corrugated card and two stamped and fussy cut doilies from the Doily Texture stamp and some cheesecloth and sprayed it with Wisteria Kaisermist. (At this point I was a little worried it was too dark..but don’t worry..it comes good in the next stage!)
I then used fussy cut flowers from the Hydrangea sheet and layered them using Foam Mounting tape. I also added inked wooden flourishes from the Garden Pack, Sea Breeze Sparklets, butterflies from the collectables pack, Sea Breeze Blooms and Little Birdie Water Colour flowers.
To finish I added sprinkles of watered down white acrylic paint to the whole thing..see what a difference it makes?
I am loving this pretty new collection and I hope you will too! See you in the shop!
Here’s how it ended up once I’d added a title (which I took from one of the Lilac Whipers sheets).
