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 .

The Hummingbird, and feather were both stenciled onto prepared cardstock

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 .

CHALLENGE : FLORAL FANCY- (EVERYTHING FLOWERY )


I`m here with my Friday challenge , to show you my idea of a FLORAL FANCY .

http://thatscraftychallenges.blogspot.dk/



I used a White Greyboard panel ,which I first sprayed with Infusions 
to male a airy background.
All the Bits and Pieces Grayboard pieces : 
Funky Flowers, Fairy, and Hummingbird , were painted with white acrylic, and the flowers and bird were run through the Big Shot inside a Sizzix embossing folder, and after I smeared
Distress Oxide over them, using my finger, and 3 different Oxides (see below)


The leaves were painted with the same paint and Oxides, and the tiniest fairy , and bird too.
Along the lower edge I added Texture paste , mixed with green paint , through the Dinky Stencil : Leaves , to add a feeling of fallen leaves . When dry I smeared a bit of Vintage photo onto them here and there.


Lynne`s new beautiful Affirmation , from Set 6 was stamped onto a piece of old book page.
Around the panel I gave the frame a little Vintage Photo, too, and then adhered some vintage lace died with Infusions, and Teal Multi Surface Paint, both on top and button to the panel, giving an idea of clouds and green filed. 


All the bits were adhered with All Purpose Craft Adhesive ,  I created details with a black Fin e Liner, and a white Posca pen .
With the Metallic Paint Pearl I also gave a little shine to the flowers , the bird and the fairy wings .
Looking at my work table, just in front of me were some Hot Glue Gun "pearls" from an earlier work, and they fitted as little decoration for the flowers after having been painted, too .
The last thing to do, was adding water to White paint, and by "hitting " the pen carefully ,over the panel, making  a little snowfall !!

This is my try - I really hope you also want to give this great challenge a try, as we all love flowers, Don`t we !!!!!!

The Challenge runs for two weeks, so plenty of time,-- and as many of you know , by now, there is a great premium of 20 Pound to use in Laura`s shop, for the winner 
 :


I wish you good luck, and a wonderful weekend !!

Hugs and love Dorthe

GET YOUR SPOOK ON :-)

HELLO CHALLENGE !!!

We are going to get spooky ,lol habe a closer look here, on all the other DT`s spooky creatione : 


I used a little panel , painted it first with green and white paint, 
left to dry, and then mixed brown and white, to as very light brown/beige tone, which was painted 
all over the surface .
Onto that I smeared a thin layer of glace, left it to dry and then with the thinned brown paint, 
painted all over the surface, --- left do dry to create crackles !!

Then I stenciled first the Harlequin using brown Archival Ink,     Coffee  --and then
the 12 o`clock from the Cog Clock stencil.-- the craw background and 
Flight of the Bats  all with Archival Ink Jet Black  


I found a dry rose branch,  and still with two thorn `s- adhered it together  with
some dried nature straws, to the right side panel, making it look as if one craw just landed in the nest.



I had some tiny pumpkins , very mini , from a flower shop, which I adhered
together with 2 scratches of black fabric , and a piece of tulle swiped around the panel to give texture .  You could use tiny pinecones , or other nature finds , as substitute for the pumpkins !!! Two rhinestones were attached to the tulle on top, and to the "flower" . 
Jet Black ink was dabbed onto all edges !! 

I hope you like my not too spooky panel :-)

And I hope you will play ,and have the great chance to win 


Hugs and love Dorthe

FOREVER AUTUMN


Yes Autumn is really here , and this new challenge 
over at That`s Crafty Challenge Blog , asks for your creations
about  FOREVER AUTUMN , isen`t it a lovely titel !!

http://thatscraftychallenges.blogspot.dk/2017/09/forever-autumn-challenge.html



My own contribution started onto a Rounded  corners panel , which I 
first sprayed with a very thinned Infusion in Terracotta ,left to dry and oversprayed
with Sleigh Blue, also thinned a lot.

After dried I dabbed with Distress Oxides  : Vintage Photo with a little 
Iced Spruce on top here and there . The beautiful Dinky Stencil Spider Web was used in the
upper left corner , using Iced Spruce ,and in right corner I added a thin layer of 
Distress Crackle paint ,Clear Rock Candy , and left to dry .



Embellishments were painted with the lovely new Multi Surface Paint ,
in Green - Red- Chestnut Brown and yellow, to try capture the
wonderful autumn tones.



The tall flower also had a coat of the Crackle paint and so did the butterfly and one of the toadstools .



After it had all dried I smeared Distress Ink Walnut stain onto the crackled places, and wiped off the extra ink .

I felt something was missing in the lover part of the panel and used
another great Dinky Stencil : Harlequin , also with the Iced Spruce.
Not too easy to see here , sorry !!


Then all the Embellishments were adhered ,onto scraps of lace
some dyed with the Infusions , -- the Butterfly and toadstools got copper thread 
details ,to highlight a bit , and tiny cones from the wood were added too.
If you want to see details, just click the pictures :-)

Thank you if you followed me to here, dear friends ,

FLY AWAY !!!!!

A new challenge for you over at That`s Crafty Challenge Blog , http://thatscraftychallenges.blogspot.dk/     and this fortnight the challenge is : Fly Away ( wings and birds )  For me a very lovely  subject !


I started using one of my much loved Heart surfaces ,- gessoed it, and after painted with two new , beautiful colors from the Multi Surface Paints, Chestnut Brown and White, mixed together .
I wanted to create a frame with Tyvek and lace , so draw a pattern after the heart , and used it to cut, like a frame of the old lace , and another from Tyvek . Tyvek was sewed onto the lace, and after I burned it to create texture , made it roll together, and curl.  


You can see here how it looks after I painted it with the Chestnut Brown and Metallic Bronze. The texture inside is tea-leaves from when drying the tea bags , after drinking my tea….. they make great wonderful texture J


I found some af my favorite Embellishments , Bits and Pieces Greyboard , from the following sheets  : Feathers and Wings, Christmas Birds, and Autumn/Winter ( Acorn ) , they were also gessoed ,and then painted with the same tones as the background, -the bird had a coat of Ice Blue to the wings,-
the leaves, of the acorns ,a touch of the Green, and after dried, I added details with the beautiful Metallic Bronze



The wings had two coats of Chestnut Brown, and after dry I added Distress Crackle Paint ,to the top of them, and also to the top of the birds wings. Both were painted with Distress Ink :Walnut stain ,after totally  dry,-- and after worked well into the crackle with a brush , I took away the coat on top ,with a piece of,  cloth .



Everything was added with the Multi Purpose Craft Adhesive ,--the bird got a lace piece in the   beak, two hearts from my box of “trash” were also adhered . The last thing to do, was adding a piece of Sari Silk to the two holes I had made using my Crop A Dille , one in each bow, -to make it possible hanging.

So this is my go , on this wonderful Challenge , and I hope I have inspired you ,to create something for it too.  As you might know :
The winner of the Challenge will receive a £20 voucher to spend in the online store. http://www.thatscrafty.co.uk/

Wouldn`t it be exiting !!!!  I hope to see you there  .
Also there are so gorgeous creations from the other team members  !!!!

Hugs and love
