MY DELICATE WINGS--




With January already out of it`s first week, we are ready, again, to enjoy creating and playing,
and for this weeks Challenge  :  "Feeling Blue - mainly blue "  I enjoyed creating this little panel.
I used one of the new paints , Bright Blue , mixed with a bit of white, on the panel, and letting it dry .
Then the lovely stencil , Mandala was used together with the Metallic Ice Blue ,paint, dabbed through it, twice , -drying in between each layer.

On the other side of panel, I used the tree stencil , first with Potting Soil, and after with Hydrangea, to achieve this dreamy tone.

The butterfly from the new Textures Collection set, was stamped directly onto the background, and after also on white card stock. I painted it with a even more soft tone of the blue and white mix.
Draw up the lines from the stamp with a grey fine liner, and painted the spots , white , then adhered to the panel on top of the already stamped ,one.

The lovely " harlequin "pattern from one of the bigger stencils, I added here and there, also with Hydrangea.
Laces were also painted with the rest of the light blue mix, and adhered to the panel . One of the tiny
boys, from Tim Holz Christmas Paper Dolls, found a place to sit on the lace -holding onto the tree, an d his butterfly in his hand via a silvery thread , from a Christmas gift.He got wings I cut, to suit him,- from a Bits and Pieces Butterflies sheet . They were painted white, and details made with the grey fine liner, -also on his dress I highlighted the details.


Half an affirmation from one of Lynne`s sheets , was stamped onto a piece of painted paper,and
adhered to panel under the boy. I added white dots , around the perimeter , and made some berries to the tree- and the feelers on the butterfly was also defined more, with a fine liner.

This finished my sample for this : feeling Blue , challenge. If you want to play, please visit here
 http://thatscraftychallenges.blogspot.dk/  for more details .
The winner will receive this wonderfulgift , to use in the shop !!




I hope to see some of your creations, there.

Hugs and love

WISHING YOU ALL A HAPPY AND HEALTHY YEAR AHEAD !!


Already second of January 2018 ,
so fast the days have gone, - it really makes sense , trying to live in the moment,
when experiencing , the days just fly off, one after the other.


Yesterday my husband and I went for a walk, late afternoon, along the shore -line
here in Rønne. 
The wind was heavy , and the waves almost exploded when reaching the 
stone wall, it looked amazing.


And as we came closer to the town, sun started to go down ,and the light got darker.
If you click my photos, you can see more details .


This card I created for a friend, using a stampset designed 
by Donna , you can find it if clicking the link .

I wish for us all , that the new year, will send angels, to keep us under the wings ,
taking care of us, for a healthy and happy 2018 .


Have a lovely rest of the week.

Hugs and love,
Dorthe

ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE

The last challenge this year, and as the titel say you can do anything you want ,this time.
Isen`t that fantastic !!




I desided to use one of the shrines - and prepared it by adding gesso all over inside and out .
When dry, I sprayed with Infusions Sleight Blue, on the background , and also painted the top wall with Chestnut Brown.
In the bottom, I added crumpled tissue paper, to form a hill, and painted it with white.
I added dry moss ,and larch branches to the hill top, and painted the branches with a little white ,to look as if snow landed there.

Two sizes of Christmas trees, were painted first with gesso, and then added texture paste. Also 4 little snowflakes were painted white. A bigger one with the Metallic Antique Gold ,and the same for the 
Happy Christmas, words. Both snowflake and the words, had two coats .


A  greyboard deer was painted with Chestnut brown mixed with a little white , -gold details were added to its bag, and ears.... and also around the Christmas tree`s shapes. 

I newly was very inspired by a post somewhere, (cant find it now, and therefore can`t give credit to the one showing it) but she created icicles using a hot glue gun, and I had to try it on this , I managed to make some hanging from the ceiling , they were also painted white.


The last things to do, was adhere trees, dear and snowflakes to the shrine. The words were adhered on top of white painted lace , and tiny cones from nature to the hill . 

Now if you want to have a chance winning this wonderful voucher .


you please go to the page : http://thatscraftychallenges.blogspot.dk/ read the rules, and create from your hearth .
Wishing you all a merry Christmas 

Hugs and love 
Dorthe
