Hippy Life-Happy Life

Hello everyone! Nicole here with a fun piece I created for my wall in my craft room. I’ve had this Embroidery Hoop for sometime now…trying to figure out what to do with it. I finally got an idea and just went with it!

Disclaimer: “The Crafter’s Workshop Provided me with product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.”

To begin, I coated the embroidery hoop using the Black Gesso. I let it dry overnight.

Once the Black Gesso was completely dry, I used a palette knife to apply the Chartreuse Stencil Butter over the TCW932 Peruvian Lily Stencil.

Next, I used the Fuchsia Stencil Butter and TCW928 Trumpet Daffodil to create more patterns and color.

Note: Wait until each color is completely dry before applying the next Medium to prevent the colors from becoming muddy.

I might have gone a bit overboard with the Stencil butters and the new stencils…but I was going for a funky look… And I really wanted to use as many colors as I possibly could. 🙂 I used the Turquoise Stencil Butter to create patterns using the TCW930 Cupped Daffodil Stencil.

To complete the background, I used the Marigold Stencil Butter and the TCW2303 Rockwall Slimline Stencil to create a brick wall pattern throughout the center of the art piece.

Once it was completely dry, I added the photos, trims and rhinestones. I stamped the butterfly from the TCW2209 Beautiful Sentiments Clear Stamps pack onto white cardstock, used a blending brush and ink to change the cardstock to orange and then stamped the butterfly out and fussy cut the shape from the cardstock using scissors. I mounted the butterfly onto the art piece using foam squares.

Here is a closer look at this piece! I’m not sure if I love it or hate it, but I did all the work so I might as well share it…it took me four nights to complete.

Thank you so much for visiting today! Have you tried the new Stencil Butters? The colors are beautiful and it goes onto any surface like Butter! Check out the store to see all of the gorgeous new products!
