Are you beginning to think of
getting away for a long weekend
or maybe even holidaying in the
UK this year?
Louise Thomson has been
thinking the same and has sent
us a project reminiscent of
summer holidays .............
"I painted a wooden box, first with
a couple of coats of gesso, then with
some fresco finish paints.
The edges are stamped with a
I painted in all the details, rather
liking the idea that it could be
a little Cornish fishing village with
multi coloured cottages.
Some subtle detail was added to
the top by sponging paint on to an
Impression Obsession cover a card stamp
and printing it over the lid (I'm afraid it
doesn't show well in the photo).
A little distress oxide ink was blended
around the edges and I finished of
with a couple of io die cut gulls."
Thank you Louise, a timely
reminder of summer holidays
and trips to Cornwall.
