It's Such a Perfect Day!
Over on the Happy Daze blog I have made this little hessian ('burlap' if you are in the US!) canvas. I have Brenda to thank for this as I had said to her when we were going to Ally Pally, please will you look out for hessian canvases like the Tim Holtz ones for me, and she said, don't buy them, cover chipboard with hessian and make your own! So I had a look on e bay and found hessian very cheaply and it makes such a textured piece. I didn't need staples, I just used glue. Thank you so much, Brenda!
I used the wrinkle free distress technique with peacock feathers, picked raspberry, and squeezed lemonade, and removed some of the colour from the little girl's face with bleach. I used the Artistic Outpost sets Lovely Day, and the ornate header from Whimsical Melange, overlaid on a pediment from the new Tim die. I am entering this into the Artistic Outpost Referral Programme for April. You can get their stamps from them if you are in the US, and from Happy Daze in the UK.

Loving your choice of colours for the wrinkle free areas. They work so well against that fab hessian background. Hugs, Jenny xReplyDelete

Brenda is so helpful as are you! You know before I got into this stamping thing we do, I had some burlap bags from rice and saved them for years! Of course, I finally gave them up and now I could use them! That is what happens when you tidy up! Lucy, this is stunning! Love the background you created and the AO images are so happy there!
