It is Tracey here with my mid month inspiration project . I thought I would do a sweet little mixed media plaque for a change.
It started life as a basic mdf heart .I added some pretty papers ,stamped on the paper with grey ink and a lovely Indigoblu script stamp to add interest to the background. I then added further texture by adding texture paste through a butterfly stencil.
I applied white gesso using the dry brush technique to the plaque to give it a white wash effect. The words have been stencilled onto white card using a Phil martin creative expressions stencil and lilac ink. I used grey-board and the sizzix Bigz XL caged bird die for the birdcage which I painted with gesso to match the project.
The flowers are from wild orchid and they were dipped in glue and then into glitter to make them sparkle. The bird has been made using the stampin up bird bunch.
The stunning bow was made using ribbon from my MPP pack and of course my trusty Craft-dee Bowz bow maker which makes stunning bows every time and you can find out how to get one from the sidebar on the left
That is how I made the plaque ,I hope you like it and that you will join us for this months challenge where Anything goes with a handmade bow...
