I thought I'd show you the wall hanging I made for Crafty Individuals on their Hochanda show:
I stamped the tree and star straight onto calico. If you tape the calico to a piece of card and then use a stamping platform, you can get a good image even though these stamps are so detailed. I've then played around layering them up on various fabrics, adding stitching, ribbons etc.
That's real ivy wound round the branch - seemed to last pretty well! Certainly grows up all my trees in the garden!
Both these projects use some of the new Uprights from That's Crafty! as well as stencils and stamps.
The background on this one is a very detailed leaf pattern that works really well with texture paste:
This is using the same flowers stamped onto tissue paper and stuck and sealed with Acrylic Wax. I've used Distress Crayons over the top:
This uses some of the new That's Crafty! products that were on Hochanda this week: Melina's new stamps, uprights and stencils:
When I started this it went completely wrong and I kept on having to paint over it! In the end I did multicoloured stencilling and then threw paint at it - literally! The flowers and butterflies are added on top.
