Hope you had a great weekend. This week our lovely team has been working with leafing/gilding flakes and created some scrumptious projects for you.
You will find different types of leafing/gilding material on our site, either by the sheet (La Dore brand or here ) or in flakes in different shades in little boxes (my personal favourite)
We hope you enjoy this week and all the different ways to use this beautiful product.
Let's start with Michelle today...
Easter's on it's way and I just happened to have this goose egg in my box of alterables and thought I'd have a go at making a golden egg!
I first masked the egg roughly with torn masking tape then sprayed it with spray adhesive. After removing the tape, I then applied the gold leaf with a dry brush, adhering it to the sprayed adhesive on the egg. I rubbed the loose leaf off with a soft brush. The Lace stamp was stamped onto tissue paper (definitely my technique of the week) then stuck over the join on the gold leaf with multi medium. A few gold bits and bobs to decorate and I'd laid a golden egg!

Was enjoying myself so played some more.
For this I just painted the mini canvas with black acrylic paint then stamped a flourish onto the canvas with versafine.
I then embossed with Stamp and bond then brushed on the gold leaf. Afew bits and bobs to decorate finished it off nicely!
