D2C Skinzapfel board

I realised I hadn't shared my Skinzapfel project from Dare to Create in Coventry a few weeks ago with the amazing Andy Skinner and Tracy Weinzapfel.


I loved this class where both Andy and Tracy shared the projects they had made whilst on a Skype or FaceTime session, daring each other to add the next layer and not showing what they had created until the end, their projects were very close in visual appearance. The heart took centre stage and you can see it has been distressed with Andy's stamps and given a dark shadowy aura around it, it really stands out.


We added stenciled modeling paste for texture ......


.... and stenciled with the media paints as well.


I love the colours I used and wish I'd written down the names of the ones I had chosen to put together. Of course they were all from the DecoArt media line.


No process steps today in respect for Andy's and Tracy' class, but I know I will be making something similar again soon. I did however get my three D2C pieces shown on Andy's blog HERE.

Hope your week is going well.

hugs Brenda xxxx

Brilliant project Brenda, love how the heart pops against that more muted background. The white stencilling looks fantastic too. The shadow and subtle stamping on the heart just bring it all together to erfection!
