Diwali Week - Dawn Heald


Hope you are all well and not flooded 
out after all this rain we've had over the last
few days.
This week we gave our DT one word
Now I must confess, I knew nothing about
 it so I looked it up and found that it is 
the festival of light, an ancient Hindu festival
celebrated every year. The festival spiritually
signifies the victory of light over darkness. 

Today Dawn is with us to show you her 

Dawn says......

 Hi there crafters, this week for our topic
 on Diwali I have altered a candle holder.
 I also looked into the reason for Diwali 
and learnt a lot, a love story too. I got
 the best lesson from my nine year old
 son, Samuel who knew the story inside out.
 So being know as the festival of light, I made this...

I used the Irresistible Texture Sprays as a paint
 and this worked well. It did however after 
drying, crack and push the stamped lines. 
I liked this look as it gave it a grunge feel
 to it, but you could easily go over the lines
 with a pen or paint and brush. I'm enjoying
 these sprays and look forward to more experiments.

To make this project - 
Give the glass a good clean and dry. Then
 stamp your images using Jet black Stazon 
ink. I laid my stamp flat on the surface, 
inked up and then rolled the
 glass over the stamp.

Next paint your images using a brush and
 Irresistible Texture Sprays. Don't forget
 you can mix colours together. Leave to dry.

Add some black paint dots using handle 
end of paint brush.

 Use glossy accents 
and attach multi colour gems to finish.

Wow, that is beautiful Dawn,
thank you, bet it looks lovely when
it is lit!
