Live Laugh Love - Catch the bug ABC

Monday August 28, 2017
 
Well today being Monday and at Catch the bug that means Anything But a Card.. ABC
 
So few months back I made a plaque which I have on  the coffee table ... It was time to make another plaque
 
 
So I cut a piece of watercolor paper 5X7 and spritzed with Dylusion sprays and water then dried it. I then I took some texture paste and added some stencil paste areas.. I can see I need to figure out better placement but I am learning.. I know next time... I then used some Art Anthology sand black paste and another stencil. I used a couple different stamps and stamped in different areas around the plaque. I used some Distressed crayon in black and went around the edges but it was too dark so I then went over the area with Lumiere paint.  I die cut the Live Laugh Love butterfly trio with Simon Says stitched circle die. I also cut a chip board circle for each image. I colored the images with copics and used Ranger inks to fill in around the image. I took Lumiere paint and dabbed it on the circle. I adhered the images to the chip board and added to the plaque. I then adhered the plaque to a piece of chipboard to give it strength. Right now I have it on my bakers rack so we can see it during meal time.
