A close up …
“I’ve had a play with this one – the first time I spied the Periwinkle collection I thought to myself ‘wow’. I them came across the MDF word ‘Paris’ and I knew what I wanted to do. I’ve painted numerous coats of white paint on the word ‘Paris’, and on the bird cage … I’ve then used a mask and texture paste and played and played some more. I totally love the effect, it’s almost like a stippling and I’ll definitely do this again. I’ve painted the long French plaque and covered it in one of the Periwinkle papers and lightly sanded around the edges. Using a metal die and my Cuttlebug I cut out two elegant scrolls and placed them under some flowers. I rummaged around in some crafting supplies and found some more cotton reels. I’ve used a strip from the one Periwinkle papers and cut out the word ‘dream’ and adhered to the cotton reel and then I’ve used a little more texture paste on the top of the reel and along the edges of the paper strips, just randomly. I’ve lifted the bird cage a little to sit on my plaque – this is sitting on some more of the cotton reels. My hot glue gun has had a bit of a work out putting it all together.
My dream is to one day visit Paris and this wee BTP will take pride of place on one of my scrap shelves, as a constant reminder of that dream.
Happy creating everyone”.
