I've been very blessed to have met so many wonderful people through this crazy crafty world from my absolutely amazing students at Scrapbook Art to the extradordinary women that I have been fortunate to meet through design teams. Valentine's Day is winding down but I don't want it to end without letting you know that you've all been in my thoughts.
Here is a dish I made a couple of weeks ago using the new Stampendous Jumbo Daisy and Flower Path stamps. These are two of my favorites...LOVE them. The new Stampendous jumbos now come with a corresponding mask/template that you can use for mixed media projects...just another reason why Stampendous products are so great. You can check out all of the new Stampendous release here.
To create the dish, I started with an unglazed ceramic dish and prepped it by coating it with Mod Podge. I stamped both the daisy image and sentiment onto tissue paper using Tsukineko StazOn Jet Black Ink. I then colored the daisy with Prismacolor Colored Pencils. After trimming closely around both, I adhered them to the plate with Mod Podge. To give the plate a shiny, glazed look, I generously coated the top of the plate with Beacon's Fast Finish Decoupage. A heart is not a heart unless it is red so after the Fast Finish dried, I turned the plate over, painted the rim red and again applied Fast Finish. Acrylic paint worked perfectly for this.
The theme of this month's Stampendous Challenge is Love is in the Air, share a creation of love. I am definitely sharing this. I know the gals at Stampendous would love to see your creations as well. You can find all of the details here.
Thanks to all of you who have reached out to me this last week. It means a lot. So on Valentine's Day, my heatfelt wish to you all: May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day!
Thanks for visiting.
