She BelievedPosted: September 24, 2014
Greetings, friends! 🙂 I am so behind in blogging my projects, mostly due to my crazee computer….which overheats so fast, I don’t have time to get a whole post finished. Sigh. Sadness. BUT….I’m sitting with a full sized fan focused on the hot part of the processor. I need to get these projects into the bloggosphere.
The project I’m sharing today, is one that I love so much. I made this using the Scraps off Darkness August kit, “Weathered and worn,” along with a lot of UmWowStudio goodies….swoops and swirls of prettiness. 🙂
I created the layered background, but wanted a lot of the cool background paper with the painted wood background to shine through, so I kept things tightly toward to the middle, and layered papers from there..
I used an UmWowStudio stencil to give nice texture, and watercolor gave a wash of controlled vibrant colors, that worked with the feminine background. The flowers are also boosted with acrylic paint for color pop.
The doily from the SOD kit, I cut in half, to add in sections. I loved how it gave movement, just like the umwowstudio flourishes. One of my favorite parts in the Ingvlid Bolme lightbulb that sits on a bit of stenciling….it looks so baroque and delicate, with a steampunk touch…which of course makes meeeeeeee happy.
Thanks for having a look today. 🙂 I will be back very soon with plenty of projects to share.
