Hexagon week - Sylvie

Distorted hexagons with Sylvie today and a double-sided altered wooden hanger. Love the idea to alter both sides. Such a lovely design too, don't you think?
Sylvie used the Fresco Finish paints as well as the gorgeous Crafty Individuals stamps on her sample.

Paint one side with Fresco Finish paint Vintage Lace. 
Use the Tando Creative mask Distorted Hive and Distress inks (Picked Raspberry, Worn Lisptick, Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord...) to add the background
Stamp the script lightly with Distress ink Weathered Wood. Stamp the images from CI-291 and colour them with Distress inks.
Cut them out and add them to the hanger with 3D foam squares.
Ink up the edges with Distress ink Picked Raspberry

Paint the other side with Fresco Finish paint Guacamole. 
Repeat the stencilling but this time with the following inks: Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean, Pine Needles
Stamp the Lindsay Mason images with black Archival ink
Add a touch of Squeezed Lemonade Disterss ink on the side
Add stamped/cut/coloured images with 3D foam squares. 

Add a coat of Fresco Finish glaze (matte) on both sides
