Hello and thank you for coming to visit us here on the Visible Image blog today.
We will pass you straight over to Teresa who has a very warm welcome for you…
Welcome back to a new year of Visible Image inspiration!! I can’t wait to share new stamps and projects with you all – 2016 is going to be full of exciting new designs and products. Today I am sharing a mixed media piece that I made for the January issue of Craft Stamper magazine
I used a paper mache torso mounted on a wooden spool and coaster for the base. A couple of coats of gesso prepared them for decorating. I used DecoArt modelling paste and a burlap stencil to add texture to areas of the torso. DecoArt Crackle paint and antiquing cream was applied to the stand.
I used the Universal set of stamps to add pattern to the torso, embossing with WOW embossing powder in white, pink and silver. Blue mica spray added extra colour.
The sentiment is stamped and embossed onto tissue paper before being glued in place with Mod Podge. I added silver Stickles and blue gilding wax for extra sparkle and shine. Some pretty floral trim adds the final decorative touch.
