Good morning my lovelies, I'm planning a day in the garden, tackling those dreaded weeds, not an easy task with a labrador puppy 'helping' lol. Before I venture out in to the
wilderness garden here's my project for our new Fairyland challenge at PanPastel UK. As always there is a PanPastel starter set up for grabs from our generous sponsor Berni at Your Creativity Store.
I've made a little canvas, the background was created with PanPastels in Violet and Violet tint, with Maimeri Iridescent Paste applied through a Crafters Workshop template for some fairy shimmer. I've used a digi image from Laviniai stamps, coloured her with Graph'It Markers and adhered the image with Maimeri Matte Gel medium. To add some more texture I applied some Maimeri Light modelling paste around the image and around the edges of the canvas, coloured with PanPastel and a sprinkle of Glamour dust.. You can see the image better in this pic:
Next I've added another fairy, this time a clear stamp from Lavinia, stamped on tissue paper and applied to the canvas with Mamieri matte gel. The butterfly is from the Ribbon Girl, painted with Maimeri gesso and highlighted with Treasure Gold.
To finish off I've added some 'frantage' around the edges, I made my own mixture with assorted embossing powders, glitter, micro beads and some tiny iridescent stars.
I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Allsorts: Add some sparkle
Crafting for all seasons: Monochromatic
Creative Card Crew: bling
Lavinia Stamps: pastel colours
Live and Love Crafts: 50 shades of lilac
Whimsical Designs: bling
Thanks for visiting today, have a lovely Sunday

Gorgeous colouring and I love all the textures!ReplyDelete
Have fun in the garden!!

Puppies do have a habit of providing their own help don't they, didn't realise you had a lab pup, ours is now six months old and a big gangly girl almost as tall as the grown up girls now.
Hope you are having a good bank holiday weekend and have some sunshine.
WOW! I love this canvas!ReplyDelete
I have a helper too.....LOL No longer a puppy, but still just as interested in what I am doing. I have been tackeling the weed problem in my flower beds also. Sometimes I think it would be easier to pull the flowers and leave the weeds!!!!!
Claire this is a great canvasReplyDelete
