Eileen Hull and Crescent Collaborate!
Today I have chosen to work with Crescent Photo Mat Art Board.
Eileen's new Flower - Heart & Soul
You will also need:
Deco Art Media products
Card stock - I used Tim Holtz
Beacon Fabri-Tac adhesive
Distress ink - Vintage Photo
Using a stencil and DecoArt Media Modeling Paste, add some texture onto the Mat Art Board
Tear some paper and place on Art Board, move them around till they appeal to you
Using DecoArt Matte Medium adhere the torn papers to the Art Board
Here is mine
I decided to add some distress inks. Now set aside to let the Modeling Paste dry
Let's make flowers!
Love, LOVE, Love these new flower dies!
I am mixing new with the old. Really, the old are not that old!
Using Crinoline fabric cut out a bunch of flowers using the die Heart & Soul and the
Thinlits Flower & Leaf Stitchlits
I am using these colors for my palette.
I adhered the flowers on with Beacon Mixed Media adhesive.
I also added a key hole and some beautiful gems to the piece.
I still felt it was not done and added some distress inking using Tim Holtz's distress ink Vintage Photo
I have to say, I LOVED the way the paints and mediums went on to the Crescent Art Mat Board. I did receive this free as part of the collaboration but, in my opinion this is a great substrate to work with and I enjoyed working with it very much and would use it again and recommend it!
Popped it in a frame and it is Stunning, if I do say so myself!
