Layer upon layer upon layer…

 This panel is built up in layers starting with a background from the Stamperia Songs of the Sea set and adding die cuts, cut outs and lots of embellishments. I added stencilling to the background plus drew on extra crackle and then got to work with the embellishments. Thinking of putting this in a journal, so at some point will show you the other side of the double page spread.

I've tucked the corner of the mermaid image under the cogs - first interlinking layer.

Stencil on some seaweed with Distress Oxide inkpad.

Here you can see the different depths.

Gilded Oval


If you saw the shows yesterday you’ll have seen Sam demoing the gilding foil and flakes so I thought I’d incorporate them into my project today. I’ve taken one of the filigree ovals and gilded it with both silver and gold flakes – I don’t usually mix my metallics but it seemed to work here. Then I’ve used some of the papers and pictures from the Stamperia Sir vagabond Fantasy collection to fill the frame.

Brocante Mannequin

I’ve been playing dress up this week with this mannequin that I cut out of one of the 12x12 Stamperia Brocante papers. I’ve added a pleated skirt made from a strip of the same paper, some lace, some cut out spoons, some cut out flowers plus ribbon and gems. You can really go to town. It’s all layered up on a size 10 tag.
