Creative Expressions




Hi there , finally after a long break I'm  back with my first Creative Expressions Blog of the year !!
I've been very busy in the meantime because my daughter has just got married and l helped her by making her the wedding dress ( and matching jacket and bag ) !
Right now I'm very excited to share this project with you .
The base for this project is an A5 media board which I painted with whit Gesso . I then rubbed Blending inks over the Gesso to get a soft variegated background. This will need drying.


The stamp is from the Creative Expressions stamp set - Watch the Birdie . 
I rubbed Powder Blue Gilding Polish around the edges .


Using a piece of corrugated card , I peeled some of the paper off to reveal the corrugations and 
painted into them with the Chic Aubergine ink . I then painted the card with a pale yellow ( a mix of white Gesso and a touch of Cosmic Shimmer acrylic mixed media paint , Clotted cream ) . The 
stamped image  ( Rubber stamp set   - Portraits  ) was embossed with gol powder  .


The stamped image of the lady is also from the Portraits set . 
Flowers were die cut using the Orange Blossom complete petals set and coloured with blending inks .
To add some texture I cut and frayed a piece of hessian and coloured it with Gilding polish..
The leaves are die cut from two other Sue Wilson dies .


Finally I put everything together as shown , adding a little lace from my stash .
These media boards are perfect for making a small project and I'll probably return with another one in another post .
