A not-so-secret obsession with lace...


Lovebirds-mixed-media-canvas

Well my friends, you know that when I'm obsessed with something, I just have to use it over and over again. This month it just might be lace...*winks*


The lace was from an old dress [can you see the seam?]. I started with scrunched up wrapping tissue for the base of the canvas then adhered the lace with matt gel medium. Then, I coloured with Neocolor II watersoluble crayons, misting with water to blend the colours.


I painted the chipboard with lots of glazes and mediums for textures.


Then I went crazy with the Zeus and Zoe gold buttons. I finished with PearlEx for an overall sheen. :)

P/s: Just a few more days to play along with my guest Lisa's shaped card challenge!

This is stunning Yvonne. If you love lace. You should apply to the tresors de luxe DT. They are having a DT call. Unless you're already on their team and I'm out to lunch. Lol
