This week I have a very simple project for you that looks expensive and designer yet so simple to achieve.

tattered flowers

 

 

Ingredients

8” x 8” canvas

Faber-Castell Soft Pastels – 231, 232

Windsor Newton Fixative (from Imagine Design Create)

Imagine Design Create 6” x 6” stencil/mask Window  

Newspaper

Florartistry Folding Floral Die – Rose ( from Imagine Design Create )

Pentart Chameleon Wax Paste – Green, Blue, Violet & Peach

Water Drop Chalk Ink Pads – Pink Petunia, Sage, Aspen Mist, Purple Hydrangea

Dry Flora

White Gesso  ( from Imagine Design Create )

Paint Brush

Glue / Hot Glue Gun

Quilling toolor pokey tool

 

Step 1 –

Rub the pastels lightly over the canvas.  Use the side of the pastel as it covers better and gives a wonderful texture effect.  Set pastel with Fixative or hair spray.  

Step 2 –

Cut a square piece of card and run it through your die cutting machine with the Windows stencil in middle of it.  

Cut around the edge to neaten to stencil size.

Now take the gesso and dry brush it onto the cardboard cut out.  Over the windows use a couple of coats.

Leave to dry

Step 3 –

Cut Roses with your die from newspaper.  You can cut several layers together.

Apply distress ink or chalk ink to petals, followed by a layer of chameleon wax paste to give a lovely shine and to strengthen and protect the paper.

Use a quilling or pokey tool to wind the rose and glue together.  Stick to the four windows and then stick this piece to canvas.

Step 4 –

Use some pieces of dry flora to stick above and below your central panel with a hot glue gun

 

Now enjoy your masterpiece.

 

Have a wonderful time crafting
