As you can see I am on a roll now with my posting, and wanted to show you another project I had started on my desk last week and is now finished.
demonstrating the Bump technique. I thought I must have a go at that and this is my first attempt.
Using a few of my new goodies I got from the show, I set about altering a plain papier mache wall hanging. First I give it a good coat of gesso, (then I decided I was going to add texture paste and a few other bits so I needn't have done that!) So - on went the texture paste through a leaf swirl mask from Imagination crafts and I glued on a few punched butterflies and book page pieces. When dry I gave it a second coat of gesso. I have quite a good collection of eco-paints and I used a mixture of Ocean/Lake & Olive I also used an artiste one - Lagoon, and Fresco Beach Hut & Hey Presto. I used cut n dry to blend the colours together for the background, this did take quite a while to do to get it how I wanted it. I gently sanded back the edges and some of the textured leaf swirl to bring someof the white through again. Using my new TCW Mini Bingo mask I dabbed through with the Lagoon acrylic paint and let it dry. Next I placed the bingo mask back over where I had it originally and moved it a fraction to the right and down, I used white eco-paint to dab through again and this now became the top colour with the turquoise creating the shadow. I love this technique.
I used a set JOFYstamps (set09) to stamp my flowers, leaf, and circles in archival black, then painted them with Hey Pesto & Beach Hut Translucent Fresco paints plus white eco-paint.
A little tickle of treasure brass on the edges, the ivy and the butterflies and it was done. I added a couple of ribbons to the string to pretty it up a bit. I decided not to put any sentiments on it, as I like it as it is. I really enjoyed making this and am looking forward to doing another one. Hope you like it too.
