FLY AWAY !!!!!

A new challenge for you over at That`s Crafty Challenge Blog , http://thatscraftychallenges.blogspot.dk/     and this fortnight the challenge is : Fly Away ( wings and birds )  For me a very lovely  subject !


I started using one of my much loved Heart surfaces ,- gessoed it, and after painted with two new , beautiful colors from the Multi Surface Paints, Chestnut Brown and White, mixed together .
I wanted to create a frame with Tyvek and lace , so draw a pattern after the heart , and used it to cut, like a frame of the old lace , and another from Tyvek . Tyvek was sewed onto the lace, and after I burned it to create texture , made it roll together, and curl.  


You can see here how it looks after I painted it with the Chestnut Brown and Metallic Bronze. The texture inside is tea-leaves from when drying the tea bags , after drinking my tea….. they make great wonderful texture J


I found some af my favorite Embellishments , Bits and Pieces Greyboard , from the following sheets  : Feathers and Wings, Christmas Birds, and Autumn/Winter ( Acorn ) , they were also gessoed ,and then painted with the same tones as the background, -the bird had a coat of Ice Blue to the wings,-
the leaves, of the acorns ,a touch of the Green, and after dried, I added details with the beautiful Metallic Bronze



The wings had two coats of Chestnut Brown, and after dry I added Distress Crackle Paint ,to the top of them, and also to the top of the birds wings. Both were painted with Distress Ink :Walnut stain ,after totally  dry,-- and after worked well into the crackle with a brush , I took away the coat on top ,with a piece of,  cloth .



Everything was added with the Multi Purpose Craft Adhesive ,--the bird got a lace piece in the   beak, two hearts from my box of “trash” were also adhered . The last thing to do, was adding a piece of Sari Silk to the two holes I had made using my Crop A Dille , one in each bow, -to make it possible hanging.

So this is my go , on this wonderful Challenge , and I hope I have inspired you ,to create something for it too.  As you might know :
The winner of the Challenge will receive a £20 voucher to spend in the online store. http://www.thatscrafty.co.uk/

Wouldn`t it be exiting !!!!  I hope to see you there  .
Also there are so gorgeous creations from the other team members  !!!!

Hugs and love

Hugs from Dorthe, xx


Using one of the fantastic  white greyboards as background , I first covered the white side of the greyboard, with gesso, and when dry stenciled one of my favorite stencils : The big flower , using texture paste .



When totally dry I started adding colors and pastes to the whole surface, painting some of them onto both stenciled areas , and the flat areas I left like that to add an image and other pieces .
I played with the Pastes from Pentart , and the Decoart   Media fluid Acrylics, to try to achieve the look of Rusted areas, in different stages, all over the surface, and in few places adhered sand from the beach, to show texture in the rust ,--when dry it was painted too. You can easily see it above in the photo.
I stamped the wonderful face onto tissue paper, using the Archival Ink Coffee, and adhered her to the panel, with Matte Medium . I then cut off a piece of Tyvek and draw an oval circle in the middle of the paper, which I cut out. Using my heat gun I now tried to make a frame for the face,  attacked from tear and rust, and when satisfied I painted it over also with the different pastes, and paint .




The same treatment of paste and paint , I gave the embellishments : cogs and clocks , a clips ,and two pieces of old lace from my stasch.
It was adhered with the great Multi Purpose Craft Adhesive.
The last thing to do was make a hole with my Crop-A-Dile  and put through a lovely piece of brown Sari Silk.

Beautiful gifts from a beautiful soul !!

 Last months I received a package of love and beauty , from a very dear friend
Wendy from   http://appleapricot.blogspot.dk/.


Wendy and I have know each other for many years, and she is a beautiful soul and friend.
Just look what was inside , waiting for me !!
The most lovely booklet , so beautifully crafted ! Look the embroidered -friend- on the 
front and the sari silk closure !!


Inside sweetness of pockets one with a tiny book and a handwritten sentiment , and outside 
the gorgeous butterfly, another with a pencil to add notes in the book 
And flowers , - tiny tag and the beautiful bone cross .


This is the back cover , with the embroidered foliage ,turning
all around the book. I so love it Wen, dear !!


And this lovely friend, also thought I should be gifted her very first macrame
art piece, which is this wonderful dream catcher, - now hanging so beautiful here in
my workroom ,between two shelves , dangling when I pass .


These two cute hand crochet flowers, are from Wen`s clever hands ,too, 
the little one made from the most thin yarn and tiny old crochet hook.
They are gorgeous !


Oh and if it was not all too much already, I also found this  adorable hand knitted ,-
Wen is calling it a pocket message booklet , and you see her so loving message
also embroidered here , -what a beautiful message to be gifted, and to hold maybe
in my pocket or maybe around my arm, - the biggest gift I can receive,  :" you are loved " .



Outside another hand crochet heart and an embroidered button .


Oh dearest Wen, how can I ever express my gratitude , and joy for all
these lovingly created and gifted beautiful things. 
Thank you from my heart ,to you dear friend. I treasure it all so very much,
as I also treasure our friendship. 
I`m also so happy to see you back blogging again.
Loving hugs to you, smiles and kisses.

-------------------------------

And hugs and love to all my dear visiter `s,  you are a very important
part of my life , thank you !!
