Hello to you.
So I'm well and truly back from my travels around New England and have brought myself back some great crafty goodies, but I will tell you more about that in another post!
I needed a little nudge to get me back into crafting again and what better way to do that, than to enter the IndigoBlu Blog Challenge, so I have!
How about you?
Why don't you have a go at this challenge, you might even win a fab prize.
Check out all the information here.
Good Luck and have some crafty fun! xx
My idea for this challenge changed quite a lot and I needed to pin something down so I took a look again at my IndigoBlu stamps to get some ideas. I then went on to thinking about dreams, which then lead onto dream catchers, then I moved onto day dreams and how time slips by when lying in the sun day-dreaming (or thinking about challenges lol) and I ended up thinking about the 'Mr Darcy' stamp set I have.
And after all that thinking, this is what evolved.
|What do you think??|
|So, first things first. |
I painted a background with some of the Cottage Garden Acrylic paints from both the Metallic and Matt paints.Trying to get those colours you get when blowing bubbles.
|I mixed up a runny paint with a few of the colours and let them drip down the card. Once this was dry I painted over the entire piece of card with the 'Snow White' paint.|
|Once the paint was dry I then stamped with the Bubbles stamp and sprinkled it with some Stampendous shabby blue embossing enamel.|
|I wanted to add some extra texture so I used the clock face mask and some 3D gloss gel mixed with a little Kingfisher paint.|
|I then stamped out several black images onto acetate circles to give the illusion of bubbles, used some different colour paints to make them come alive a little.|
|I felt the 'Bubbles' need a little shine so I went around each of them with some Mega Flake.|
|I haven't shown it here but I added some glitter glue and gems to the bubbles.|
|I felt that this project was beginning to look like a wall hanging so thought I would use one of the Tim Holtz wall hangers I brought home with me but felt the colour of it wasn't quite right so covered it with embossing enamel|
|I also added a Tim Holtz 'Word Band' to the hanger.|
|Before I glued down the 'Bubbles' I moved them around the hanger to see how I liked them the most.|
|I felt the hanger was a little plain so added a small seam binding bow.|
Below are a few close ups.
I hope you have enjoyed following my journey into creating this wall hanger.
Hope to see you here again soon.
