I am off work today, hurray!! after what has been a very long week!! I need to do loads around the house but I am not going to bother at all. I am going to spend my day losing myself in crafty blissness. But before I do that I just want to enter this piece, I recently made as a gift for a friend of mine, in a couple of Anything Goes Challenges.
It's Anything Goes month over at The Artistic Stamper and the fortnightly challenge at Anything Goes Challenge Blog
|Stampotique - Twinkie|
This started life as a plain white frame and a cardboard lid. I covered the lid with dictionary paper (which you cant see now, then gesso, then added a selection of acrylic paints and liquid acrylics to complete my background. Then added a selection of embellishments including a love heart which I inked to make the lettering stand out more, some washi tape. Main image is Twinkie by Stampotique. As a backing to mount my lid on I stamped all over with Bla,Bla,Bla stamp - Stampotique. I then painted the white frame in black acrylic paint and when dry sanded it back to distress. I added the Bla,Bla,Bla stamp again to the frame by stamping on tissue paper and sealing onto the frame with ranger glue and seal.
There is a story around the composition that I wont bore you with, but my friend loved it, and it now hangs proudly in her kitchen.
If you are also having a crafty day have a good one.
