6 x 6 Mixed Sentiments - card words
I used some different colours of acrylic paint to colour the background paper and also added some texture with a stencil and texture paste and did a little stamping as well. The Bubble Clumps were simply painted white with acrylic paint and then layered over a piece of gauze underneath my flower cluster.
I love these Dreamcatchers!! I was a bit afraid at first that the center would be very delicate and difficult to work with but it is a lot stronger than it looks. I painted it with gesso first and then with some blue acrylic paint. I also used the same paint to add the accents on the feathers and swiped the edges with a Versa Color Ink Pad.
These Mixed Sentiment Words are so handy for card makers. They are the perfect size for smaller projects and you get ten different greetings in the one pack.

Chicken Barb Wire Small
Foliage Set 2
Once again I added some stamping and texture to the background papers and also added some splatters. All the chippies were painted with gesso first and then I used a paint dabber in 'Peeled Paint' to colour the ATC Word.
Isn't this Ava's Butterfly unusual? So delicate and pretty. I simply coloured it with a stamp pad and then sprinkled it with glitter. It looks really sparkly and pretty in real life but, unfortunately, the photo doesn't quite pick that up.
The 'Peeled Paint' dabber was used on the Foliage Set 2 as well but I didn't colour it solidly. I like that slightly mottled look, it's just a little more interesting I think. You can just see that I added a little sparkle here as well.
I had actually painted the other side of the Chicken Barb Wire but didn't like the colour so I flipped it and found some of the gesso and paint had leeched around to the other side. Thought I would have to cut another piece at first but then decided to swipe it with a Charcoal stamp pad and liked how it looked so used it anyway.
How gorgeous is this Decorative Rod Set 1? When I saw this on the product list I simply had to get it. I normally wouldn't have chosen a piece of this length because my makes are on a smaller scale than Scrapbooking but I simply could not resist this one and, I thought I could cut it up if necessary. Well, what a shame that would have been. I am so pleased I was able to use it all in one piece. I simply coloured it with a Versa Color Stamp Pad and it fitted beautifully onto my card.
