Good morning :) It's Sandie here today with my take on this month's theme - Gardens.
I created an altered 4" x 6" Box Canvas wall hanging taking inspiration from the colourful gardens around my street right now.
I prepared the canvas with a layer of gesso and quickly dried it with my heat gun. Then I layered on some tissue paper and applied another layer of gesso over it, before spraying the canvas in blues and greens - to represent grass and sky.
Taking the Cracked Leather stamp and Versamark ink I first heat embossed some Olive powder and then I used the stamp again with black Archival ink. I applied some gold embossing paste and set it aside to dry.
While my embossing paste was drying I made some Flowers and a red Heart. I don't have a melt-pot so I used some Foil Melt-It cases and my heat gun to melt the powders and Melt-It. For the flowers I used Bright White and for the heart I used Apple Red.
I took some white chipboard letters and heat embossed them with Metallic Copper. I used the heart in place of the dot over the I and then layerd on all my flowers - also adding some buttons, twine and a metal hinge.
