Prize 2 images
Prize 2 images
I have used two of the Mari's Digis, that are part of the prize this fortnight.
I love Embroidery and Rain Love.
I recycled a picture frame for "I Love Embroidery". Printing the image twice, once on patterned paper and then on cardstock ready for colouring with copic pens.
Fussy cut and layered onto the patterned paper . I have added tiny gems to the pins and placed wool in the workbag.
To the frame I have added chipboard and wooden buttons, tape measure, snaps and a needle threader. To the outside of the glass I have added two tiny dragonflies, wooden scissors and dressform.
To continue the pattern on the paper outside to the frame I have added flowers and leaves to complete the frame. (leaves from Flourish with a Bling)
I have been slowly cleaning out my craft room and came across an old canvas that one of my grandchildren had been practising on quite a long time ago.
I covered it canvas with patterned paper. Then used handmade papers for the background and the verse.
The image has been coloured with copic and touch pens, then fussy cut and layered onto paper with 3d strips, the umbrella has been printed and coloured again and layered on as a second layer.
Clouds, rain drops, flourish, flower, leaves and mushroom are all from "Flourish with a Bling".
Finished of with strips of crystals from my stash.
One will go on the wall of our laundry along with other little frames with quotes and this recycled canvas will hang in my craft room.
