Hi everyone and welcome. It’s Jenny here with my floral project for this month; you will have noticed by now that the Design Team are focusing on using the new Floral Vignettes Mixed Media Paper stacks. Created especially for IndigoBlu, they are designed to take all sorts of abuse from paint, paste, inks and water, and they have a distinctly vintage feel to them.
Quite often in demonstrations I’ll use book pages when creating projects, and to avoid any embarrassing words have come to rely on a gardening encyclopaedia! There are lots of wonderful diagrams showing garden plants and equipment throughout this book and I decided to include one of these on a canvas alongside the new Floral Vignettes, and here’s the result…
Having painted the canvas in Frosty Sky Paint I used White Gee-Sso Good! to transfer the encyclopaedia paper and Slap It On! to transfer a sheet of A6 Floral Vignettes paper over the top. This second sheet included irises on it, and worked perfectly as a base on which to layer further copies of this image.
You’ll maybe spot that I used the new Texture and Laurel Leaves stencils (one with a blend of Peppermint Tea and Grandma’s Teacup Paint, another with Fine Modelling Paste) to add detail under the floral ‘decoupage’. There are also splatters of Hot Cocoa and Pantry White Paint and a subtle spritz of Lindy’s Stamp Gang ‘Golden Doubloons’ Moon Shadow Mist to finish it off. The word ‘Freedom’ came from the Limor Webber A5 ‘Plume’ stamp set (stamped with StazOn ‘Ganache’ Ink) and I used some watered down Distress Ink to outline both this and the flowers.
I hope you’ve got a few ideas from seeing this layout that you can use on your own projects and would love to hear about them/see them.
For now, until the next time take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx
