Here is my entry for the #G45Selfie challenge for June. I am so excited about how this project turned out!
Once again, I used the beautiful papers and elements from the “Imagine” collection. In addition, I used the Graphic 45 Tag & Clock and the Large Tag, and Flower die sets.
I used a variety of elements to create this project. Including – Liquitex Modeling Paste, a stencil from TheCraftWorkshop.com (branch), Prima Patina Paste and Art Alchemy Metallique Wax Cire Cera, and Elizabeth Craft Designs #1140 Garden Notes Grapevine Wreath Square Die.
I base coated the clipboard using Gesso, then added the stencil with the Liquitex, on various parts of the clipboard making a random patter. I also added pieces of paper doilies randomly. I coated the doilies with some of the Gesso as well.
I cut all the die pieces out of black cardstock, then used the Prima paste to add the distressing. After fussy cutting some of the flowers and butterflies from the Imagine papers, I dry brushed the copper patina paste on the edges. I used all three patina paste colors to add more dimension to the paper flowers.
I distressed the Memory Glass frame using the same patina paste colors after first applying a coat of Gesso on the metal frame. I cut a piece of cardstock from the collection the size of the Memory Glass and sandwiched the cardstock between two pieces of the glass. I added some chain, which was also distressed with patina past to finish the look.
I distressed the entire clipboard using Walnut Stain and Crushed Olive from Tim Holtz distress ink collection.
