Hello! Happy Saturday! We have a stunning project to share with you here on the blog today! Jane Tyrrell is here with a gorgeous wall hanging which features lots of our beautiful stamps…
Phew it has been so hot that most of our minds have turned to thoughts of the seaside. I decided that my garden studio needed a fantasy seaside goddess wall hanging. Now I know that you will say that there is no sea goddess Visible image stamp… yes I know that too.. but there’s nothing stopping me improvising one. After all I made a mermaid from the leaping Katie stamp!
I used the lady’s head from the No Space For Dreams set
and the seaweed from Dare to Swim
I over stamped and embossed them onto some watercolour paper using Seth Apter baked embossing powders to create my sea goddess. I love the colour mixes in these powders.
I coloured the paper with blue distress inks and added some white stencilling using the Time Tunnel
I also white embossed the sentiment from Own Kind of Beautiful
I wanted my wall hanging to also have a little seahorse…again I hear you say that there is only the one beautiful large seahorse stamp in the ‘Create your Calm’ set…
Correct again, but shrink plastic came to the rescue. You can see the cute size after I had stamped, heated and shrunk the plastic when held next to the original stamp. I also shrunk the large jelly fish from the Dare to swim set
Here is my finished wall hanging..
I made a mixed media frame for it from corrugated card… one of my favourite (and free) substrates. I used gesso, embossing powders, shells, metal charms, pearls and glossy accents.
Here it is hanging in my studio..
The little fish stamp is also in the Dare to swim set
and here is one more inside shot..
Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind comments.
The heatwave appears to still be with us this weekend… this is the first real summer we have enjoyed for some years here in the UK. Keep cool and carry on crafting!
Bye for now,
Thank you Jane! Your sea goddess is wonderful, and those shrink plastic sea creatures are too cute ♡
