The year seems to be already
picking up speed.................
Here we are almost at the end
Beginning to wonder if the
addition of an extra week
wouldn't be such a bad thing.......................
Really? Yes of course, I'm joking!
Here's Helen Chilton with some
lovely rice paper:
Choose your designs. I've gone for
one black and white collage design
and then some coloured images for my focal point
Stick some of the black and white paper
to the front of your canvas using a decoupage glue
Rub out any air bubbles with your fingers
Cut out the focal image roughly and stick to card.
When dry trim to make a tag.
I've used Gelatos as a colouring medium
and have taken my colours from the dress form image
Rub and blend them with your fingers.
You can also pull out colour with a wet brush.
Add some extra colour to the dress form tag.
Then use a baby wipe to remove colour and make highlights
Finally rub some white Gelato over the back of a stencil
and rub into the canvas.
Finish with a brad, stickles and some ribbon.
Thank you Helen
Isn't that gorgeous?
Amazing what can be
achieved with these papers
They're so affordable and
come in so many designs
do give them a go
