LOVE

We have a wonderful Challenge over at :


called : This the Season ( Everything Christmas Related )

And as you can see I went all in with a Golden Christmas !



For me Christmas is all about the message of love, 


And I started this with a MDF Panel, -painted it white, then used the most beautiful tree Stencil , Bare Tree. I used a mix of brown and white paint and carefully painted through the stencil. After I used Texture Paste , and one bubble from the Bubbles stencil, to create Christmas baubles hanging in the tree.


While left to dry I painted the greyboard snowflake, dove, and text, with 
the gorgeous Metallic Bronze. On top of the snowflake I used another Dinky Stencil :Bubbles,
to create texture, and on the one wing of the Dove yet another : Feather.
They were both used with Texture paste, and left to dry.


The tree now dry ,was in some places given Crackle paint, and again left to dry.The baubles painted with the bronze, and the dove and snowflake, as well. I mixed green and black to add to the bough of peace, and to inside line the love-text .Snowflake had little dabs on the tips, and the whole perimeter of the panel was dabbed ,too. To the dove it was painted into the wing pattern.
After the tree had dried it was overpainted with thebronze, again, showing lovelt crackles. I added torn lace -one of my favorite materials - to the lover left part of the panel, adhered it, together with a piece of dried moss from nature and a piece of fur, making a warm nest for the dove. 


All bits were then adhered , to panel and a sari silk ribbon attached after making two holes, with my Crop A Dille.

I hope this gave you appetite to create a Christmas piece for the challenge, also, 
 the  voucher , would be a lovely gain , to use in January .


Have a wonderful weekend, dear friends.

Hugs and Love Dorthe

QUIET  STRENGTH

 Challenge : - Green with Envy (make green the main colour)
Green is the color of hope , we say in Denmark, and of springtime, and beautiful nature, when on it`s fullest in summertime . Even in winter we bring inside the beautiful green Christmas tree .
So this CHALLENGE over at : http://thatscraftychallenges.blogspot.dk/  ,is filled with possibilities for you to take part .





My example , is a very simple creation, using one of the White Greyboards  panels , smeared over with Green, mixed with a little Yellow ,---- the lace was adhered after dry, and also painted with the mixed green/yellow  . when dry I used the Light Texture paste over the Feather stencil, - using white mixed with a little chestnut  brown  .                             



Also a little amount of the wonderful Texture Sand paste was smeared onto the panel on top of the feather , and left to solid dry.
On a piece of craftpaper I stamped half the Affirmation from Lynne`s set 4 ,cut it out and adhered it to the top panel ,using a green fineliner , to line out the perimeter.
Chestnut Brown paint was diluted with water, and with my finger smeared over the feather , and the perimeter of the tag. Also to the lace , was added a little, to give shadows of interest.
The texture paste was over painted with the beautiful Pearl paint, and a piece of nature bark was adhered to right side panel .

DANCE ON THE BREEZE OF LIFE

One of Lynne`s amazing Affirmations, which I used, to create for this weeks challenge
over at  :  http://thatscraftychallenges.blogspot.dk/  .

The CHALLENGE is STENCILS  , and wow, so many possibilities with all the stencils to choose from over at Laura`s shop :   http://www.thatscrafty.co.uk/



I started with a White Greyboard  tag 
sprayed with Sleight Blue , when dry I added Vintage photo to the perimeter, and highlighted also in between with the Salty Ocean, and Teal , then stenciled the beautiful Dinky stencils ,Bubbles, and Fossil, using different Oxide Inks.



The Hummingbird, and feather were both stenciled onto prepared cardstock 
fussy cut, and after details were painted with fingers, also using Oxide inks, and fine liners 
black and brown. 
Lynne`s wonderful Affirmation, was stamped onto old paper, cut up and adhered to tag, with bird and feather.- a piece of colored lace first added to the top tag !!
In the bottom tag,  a great new medium Texture Sand Paste was smeared out, and painted with diluted and mixed paints of Chestnut Brown and White . Also around the fossils , feather, and bird ,I painted this .


When all dried, I adhered remnants from the sea, picked up, on my walks from the beach,
here is cord and seaweed together with a straw .

You know you can take part in this challenge, yourself, with the possibility to win the price of this Voucher.
