For Christmas I gave my parents and my auntie a calendar I had made with a postcard sized piece of art on each month… so today I am sharing their August artwork.
I decided that I wanted to use the Tim Holtz wildflower dies so built this around that idea.
I created a background using Paperartsy fresco finish paints and stencils and stamps. Then I added the wildflowers stamps using dye based inks and heat embossed them with clear powder.
This gave a subtle layered effect to the background.
Next I did cut some of the flowers and then added paint to them in the same colours using a sponge to create a mottled effect.
I adhered them and then added shading using Big Brush Pitt pens.
I then heat embossed the sentiment and edged the panel with versamark and added more embossing powder to that too.
Love these … so many details and layers.
