Hi, I'm having a lovely day crafting this morning and 'paint fusioning' the bath panel this afternoon. I'll try and post a pic when its done, I wish i'd done it before it was put back in as i've had to be a bit of a contortionist to paint some of the leaves lol. Anyway here's a summery scene created with lots of paint, various odds and ends from the recycling box and a lovely stamp from Joanna Sheen.
I made the crackle background using emulsion paint and pva glue, distressed with vintage photo distress ink. I painted the image with distress inks and added some white acrylic paint, stickles and microbeads for the seafoam. You can see the effect better on this pic.
The image is distressed with Tea Dye and Vintage photo distress inks, its matted on another crackle background edged with distress EP (broken china I think). I've added some recycled packaging to embellish the card, corrugated card embossed with more distress EP, some twine from the garden shed and some netting. The netting was a really fluorescent yellow but it coloured nicely with alcohol inks. To finish off I added some shells from my stash.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
