What a Day! Snow this morning, howling winds now it's pouring down! So cold too... not where I am though!! LOL
Heaters on and a woolly jumper sat here in the crafty space making messy listening to the awful weather - what more could a girl want??
Started this little project a few days ago and have fiddled and fiddled and eventually put something together which I now think is acceptable!
The canvas measures 8" square and I wanted some 'depth' so turned it over and used the inside aperture. (I lined it with two M and S Sofa Fabric samples!)
Before starting I needed to 'square off' the inside to make a box so I used some canvas covered mount-board and painted it in a dark creamy colour before gluing it in place.
Made quite a bit of mess doing the frame really - I put some modelling paste all over the edges and once dry started adding layers of paint in varying shades of cream to make a textured base.
Out with the Bronze Cosmic Shimmer which was just randomly applied, then a few spots of gold embossing powder. I then blasted the whole frame with the heat gun.
Not content with this I then rubbed some metallic cream over it in a verdigris colour and just for good measure painted some watered down pearlescent tint across the whole thing and blasted again with the gun!
Some vintage cotton lace and seam binding ribbon with a bronze heart charm on the bottom and two metal corners.
The quote is one of my all time favourites - I love it - 'I have spread my dreams beneath your feet - tread softly because you tread on my dreams' is from He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven by W.B.Yeats and I printed it onto fabric then after suitable distressing and ragging glued it in place.
The vintage image, music sheet and script were all printed onto fabric and stitched, before placing into the centre onto a wooden board to lift it up.
I used some muslin, a few paper flowers, a scrap of lace, a tiny chipboard piece with a pearl glued on and then finished it with a tiny pearl where the lady's necklace is and a string of pearl beads.
