Anyone who has ever been on a class with me will know that I always come away with a half finished project, and a bag of bits to finish at home. I always have the best of intentions, but months later I still have the bag of bits. Well not this time, oh no, this time I've finished it off!
This is a piece of 8x8 greyboard, which I've not used before, but it is fab! Really strong, and holds it's shape whatever you throw at it. The lovely Lin had already stenciled in the poppies for us with grunge paste but the rest is mine (ok Lin did help me blend my paints too lol) That's what's so great about these days you learn the real stuff like how to blend your paints, which brush to use, how much water etc.
So where is the sparkle and shine?
It's here in Darcy's fab new flower from EDY09 It's been painted in Pumpkin Soup, and Plum from the new Autumn Limited Edition paints. The sparkle has been added with a blob of Glossy Accents and Treasure Silver.
Other paints used are
We have more dots over another of Lin's stencils ELB PS001, and I've stamped the flower from ELB01 in paint, and also with Copper Kettle Gilding Flakes.
Hope you like my Sparkle and Shine hanging, and that you join in with our challenge too. There's a £20.00 certificate to spend in the shop for the lucky winner, and a chance to play along with the design team in a future challenge.
Thanks very much for looking x
