Altered Art with Faith

I made these arrows, which I twisted around to be houses to go in some photo frames for my wall...however with the reflection on the glass you couldn't see the images so here they are lined up...but they will be in frames.

The chipboard base was an older Maya Road set, I covered it in gesso, and then added texture paste using the BoBunny dotty mask, I then had a play with some of the new pentart mixed media inks - which are really fun alcohol based inks.  You also get a diluter so you can create drips.  I used this for both of the blue houses.

I used some bronze metallic wax around the edges to add some sparkle.  Whilst it was dry I used the Faith light bulb stamps and cut them out.  I then wound florist wire around the houses and attached my light-bulbs to it with foam pads.  I used a mixture of paper and the noteworthy collection to add banners across, and tucked in a few sequins.

I used lots of the pentart creamy acrylics, I stamped and cut  out my "Be the Light", so I knew where to focus my paint.  I also added in some seed beads and some glitter paste, and just made the whole piece very textured.

Here is the other half of my "Be the Light" sandwich - made in the same way as the first.

Believe with BoBunny Faith

I really enjoyed making this paper with the new and beautiful Faith collection by Bobunny.  There is a whole and more detailed blog post on the BoBunny blog here is the link.  I went with a patchwork style pattern and dug out my sewing machine as well for this.  A little bit of paint and some of the gold foiled vellum in this collection, as well as the beautiful cut-a-part papers.  The colours have a warm and spring like feel to them and were perfect for my photo, and to document a few of my thoughts about my eldest.

I don't usually stitch through 2 layers of paper, but did for this project so I ended up stitching in diagonal and horizontal lines which gives a slightly different effect.

Here you can see some of that beautiful foiled vellum which is also packed with colours.
