Well, here I am, alive and recuperating from a nasty bout of the flu over the holidays! Between that and getting ready for Christmas, I've been a delinquent blogger...hope that doesn't get me on next year's naughty list!!
I have NOT however been a delinquent crafter! I created this as a Christmas present for my favourite aunt who happens to be a huge Beatles fan...
This was created Finnabair style, with lots of metal, chipboard, paint and mist. After attaching the letters and a few embellishments,I covered the canvas with tissue paper attached with Mod Podge, then stenciled a bitwith homemade texture paste. The area around the photo was done with a mixture of sand and gesso to both create a frame and make the photo become a part of the background. After the other embellishments were added I gessoed then painted the entire surface before misting with pewter and black mists. The hearts and the "love"words were rubbed with brick red stenciling paste, and the metal music notes were added last.
My aunt loved it, and it fits in perfectly with her wall of black and white Beatles-themed prints and memorabilia! I love doing projects like this once in a while, so different than my usual feminine, lacy layouts.Thanks a bunch for stopping by...happy New Year to you and yours!
