Dreams and Wishes
I have much time on my hands now and have been sequestered away in my Craftroom having loads of fun. This piece I have been working on for a bit but never finished it until today! Whew!
I started out with a blank canvas and applied my damask stencil with homemade texture paste. I stenciled the entire canvas and the sides.
While that was drying I set to work on my cheesecloth. I sprayed it with Lindys Stamp Gang Tea Pot Purple and Saltwater Taffy. I also used Heidi Swapp's Black Velvet. I added a piece of coordinating fabric on top of the cheesecloth. This piece falls into my craft room makeover colors.
I then started on my chippies. For the title piece I painted it with gesso and then used LSG ST on it but it was too pink so I added perfect pearls (Grape Fizz) and Primary Elements (Ginger Flower) to give it a gradient look that showed the pink as well.
For the black swirl chippies I painted it with black acrylic paint and used sparkling black embossing powder to give it some bling.
Lastly I added my gear clock chipboard after using the same colors on it as I did on my Dreams and Wishes chippy. I wanted it to be darker so I added some Primary Elements to it as well. Then the brad went in the middle and I adhered it to the canvas with some foam dimensional dots.
Finally it is finished and so is my craftroom makeover. Viola! Carpe Diem!
