Hi there! We are very excited to share this incredible piece of art work from Susanne Rose today…
Hi my dear Visible Image friends!
I’m sharing my first Monolith today! It’s a mdf stand alone Monolith. Perfect for mixed media. I love it. And a bonus is, you can decorate both sides! So you can turn it from time to time! For my front I used black chalkboard paint and covered the whole surface. After this was completely dry I used Fran-tage embossing enamel together with the “Sparkle in the Rain” girl. To get a good coverage I embossed it two times. That means: Immediately after the first layer is melted you add another layer of powder. It will stick to your first impression, because it’s is still hot. You have to be quick, but keep in mind to put away you heat gun, to not blow away the powder. Some on the enamel will stick to the background as well. That’s because it is so hot. But I really like that. So the contrast is not too hard.
I used Gelatos to add color. They are working great on the chalkboard. I add some texture with the Tim Holtz Speckles stencil and structure paste.
I split the sentiment by masking one part with Washi tape. Don’t forget to remove the tape before you stamp. The word “SPARKLE” is embossed with some glitter teal powder.
The flowers are all handmade paperflowers. I used dies from Sizzix and Marianne Design. The blue one is cut with my Silhouette Cameo. I add some wire and gems for more interest.
My back is totally simple. It’s also covered with chalkboard paint. Of course that means you can write on it with chalk!
Thanks for stopping by! Can’t wait to see all your first Monoliths!
