A wooden Hanging

Hello to you all, I have been messing with some wood, I had two plaques and got my son to cut the center out of one to form an aperture . I coated them both with Gesso and then dark blue acrylic.
When this was dry I the gave a coat of light blue I left this to dry then gave it a rub with sandpaper to reveal the dark blue underneath...

I then went through a leaf stencil with some  Imaginaton Crafts Sparkle Medium...I glued some burlap to the back and added the flowers before gluing both pieces

Nautical Inspiration at Country View

Hello to you all,I am back with my second sample for Country View Crafts and the theme is
I must apologise I have not got any photo's of  how this was made but will explain my steps.
I first started by tearing some paper to form the hills and inked these up with Bundled Sage distress ink ,after this I punched out a circle and used it to mask off a moon and using Faded Jeans distress ink  inked up the sky..

My sea was also made using Faded Jeans and a white pen.....My ship stamp was inked up with Black Versafine and to get the reflection I first stamped onto some scrap paper and then onto my sea,I then inked it up and stamped it the right way round...The sentiment was last to be inked up and stamped. xxx

I do hope you check out the rest of the DT projects for some fab inspiration.
