painted,crackled and dyed fabric

Credit where credit is due.......I had a peep at Lin Browns blog
(http://yoursartfully.blogspot.co.uk/) when I spotted something new
she had been trying,so had to have a go myself!!
she had painted fabric with fresco paints,covered with fresco
crackle then another coat (different colour) of fresco paint
so thats what I did...............
I added some lace dyed with TH stain in old paper and
some little buttons sewed onto the bottom.To maintain the
colour scheme I stained a TH rose with the old paper and added to
the top along with a metal leaf and two pearls
I think it worked out quite well!
ps the stamps were Indigo Blu lady and BLine tape measure

A little bit of shabby

Had some corrugated  cardboard (from an old box) so..
tore of part of the top layer and painted with white acrylic
stuck some TH tissue paper onto grungeboard
then cut out a bird. cut out  TH flourish from some more
grungeboard and shattered stained it in various shades
of pink. Stained some crinkle ribbon in the same colours
added a crown and a wordstick...and there you have it..
a litt;e bit of shabby!
Oh yes, also made a rose from pink mulberry
paper as a finasl embellishment
Hope you like this??

Nature versus technology?

though I would see how the TH texture fade would go with some texture paints

and a touch of idea ology
two different views of same tag!

My own private little wilderness

Had a lot of fun making the faux porcelain flowers and leaves
for this. Plus shattered stains for the fence and birds
All the stamps are Tims.

June butterflies

thought that I would have a play with  "perfect splatter distress"
today....for some reason I thought that a combination of
spun sugar,worn lipstick and tattered rose distress inks
together with perfect pearl and berry twist perfect pearls
would look rather good........add a rosebud stamp some words
fram a darkroom door "art de fleur" set plus of course a couple of
butterflies coloured with matching distress markers.....

and there you have it!
