I have been raiding my kitchen cupboards and my latest make, a wall hanging, is a creation from playing with a lazy Susan (now covered in paint and needs replacing, and a large palette knife which will also not make it back into the kitchen.
I have created on a piece of mixed media card which I laid on my lazy Susan, onto the card I splodged Finnabair Impasto paints I just love how strong the colours of these are. I then spun the lazy Susan whilst rotating the paint around holding the palette knife in the same place to get a rotation of colour. I then dipped the length of the palette knife in black impasto paint and created the black sunbeam effect just by slightly dragging the paint whilst pivoting from a central point. I then did the same with foiling glue. When the glue was dry I then foiled those drags of glue.
I've tried to capture the foils on the photo. I then mounted the card onto a That's Crafty 6" x 6" MDF board and trimmed it to fit.
I then added a small That's Crafty MDF heart to the centre, painted with Impasto paint and stamped some text onto it. I wrapped it with wire and glued it to the centre of the beams.
A Tim Holtz chipboard saying is added.
I felt it needed mounting on something else so I painted an 8" x 8" MDF board, again from That's Crafty, using black Dylusions paint which adds a strong black background.
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by
