a rose is a rose

hello everyone!!

i am back to share another project i created for The Crafter’s Workshop in collaboration with Altered Pages.

have you enjoyed browsing The Crafter’s  Workshop blog this month and seeing what my fellow teamies have created!! i know i sure have. so much inspiration right!

so for this second project of the month from me i decided i wanted to use the printable 1651 – flowers, letters and numbers..  there was just something about that rose i knew i needed to use it. here is what i did.

i started out my edging my page using TCW754 – distressed details and some modeling paste.

once it was dry i chose to use some oxides onto my edges of my page,

wet them down and then allowed them to dry

while my page was drying i cut out and glued my pieces to some chipboard and then i inked all those edges with oxide ink

i then wanted to add some flowers in my background so using the same oxide colours and TCW727- flower dance, i inked some flowers with two different colours

i then sprayed the page again with water and dried it

i then inked the edges of all my altered page bits using the oxide inks

after layering and gluing my bits down, i then stamped some script onto my page

as you can see i also added some glitter and seed beads using gel medium. you see it goes on white but it does dry clear!

but it was still missing something…so out came my final stencil TCW261-stencil art is

i then added a whole bunch of stitching, some wax and here you have my finished page

Supplies used:

TCW stencils:  TCW754 – distressed details; TCW727 –  flower dance;  TCW261 – stencil art is

TCW mixed media supplies: TCW9005 – modeling paste and TCW9011 – matte gel medium
