It's Valentine's Day! That means it's time for a huge blog hop with some amazingly talented creatives!
For my project, I focused on best friends! We all have them, we love them and they need to be reminded too! Especially that bestie that knows way more than any person should, has seen all the crazy, has stood beside you and held you up when you couldn't stand on your own. I've been very fortunate to have a few of these people in my world. From over 40 years ago to 27 years ago to family that you've known since the day you were born!
Happy Valentine's Day to all the amazing friends I have!
Time for the project now!
I started with a great little canvas that I picked up at my LSS. I didn't do any gesso on this one and just layered on my Distress Oxides.
|Some pretty layers and splotches using Barn Door, Aged Mahogany and Fired Brick.|
|Once the inks were dry I used Rebekah Meier's Skylight stencil, Ranger Embossing Dauber and the gorgeous Ancient Amber Embossing Powder from Seth Apter and Emerald Creek!|
|I then stenciled on a layer with Spiced Marmalade. Once that was done, I mixed some Spiced Marmalade with TH Crazing Medium and stenciled on that with RM Stencil Distressed Lace.|
Here's a close up of the crazing medium mixed with the Spiced Marmalade.
I dressed up my Paper Dolls with a little foil and wings that I tinted with some Finnabair wax.
This was such a fun non traditional Valentine to create! Thanks to Cathy Frailey from It's Oddly Appealing for bringing us all together for this hop!!
