Craft Stamper project

Just catching up with projects that haven't been posted and I've realised that I've missed out several of my Craft Stamper makes so this is one that was published last month that I called 'Creativity Takes Courage' and I used a THAT'S CRAFTY shrine that the lovely Laura sent me. It stands 24 cms tall and is a very sturdy design, I used DecoArt chalk paints on it and it was a dream to paint and stencil on the lovely smooth surface.


I love this dancing girl with what looks like a shower cap on her head - hence the title, I thought they went together well.


DecoArt chalky finish paints are fabulous to use as a base which is what I did here and I added media fluid acrylic with it to stencil with. You can see it on the back of the box as well as the front.


There's a tutorial in the magazine on how to create the textured rust that I used on the doily.


I also stamped the very back panel as well.


Some butterflies were rusted and some were dipped.


If you take the Craft Stamper magazine you will find this on P.46 of the June issue.



Thanks for stopping by, I hope your weekend goes well.

huge hugs Brenda xxx

I think I just worked out why your pieces always look so fabulous....it's the amount of work you put into the basics. Where many(most) of us just rush through the base decor to get on with the "fun" bits, you spend as much love and time on the bow as you do on the embellies!! :D XXX

Brilliant, as always. The rusty effects are superb - as I'd expect! - and I love the little stage setting you've created for the tiny dancer. Beautiful soft green for the flourishes, and wonderful butterflies. Lovely, lovely!
