Lace and Flowers


Hello again , finally I'm back with another post ! I thought that I would share a painted project with you today . This is a large flat box and the picture shows the lid . The box itself is quite shallow but is a lovely size to store notes and similar treasures .
The center of the lid is painted with lots of layers of colour slowly building up to the pale highlights .The corners are painted with fine lines and bots in a warm white to create a lacey effect . This is a lovely decorative painting technique and can be used as an addition to a design or as the complete design .

Here is a close up of the central panel which shows how the multiple thin glazes blend to create depth in the painting .
I have always loved painting and have been a decorative painter for many years . I find that this translates easily into stamping projects because everything I have learnt about painting backgrounds and colour theory is just as appropriate to stamping .
I hope you liked this little taste of one of the type of things I like to do . See you all soon.


  1. Wow, this is breathtaking Elizabeth! Would that my hands were steady enough not to mention my eyes being keen enough to even think about attempting something as fine& detailed as this beautiful piece of work.
