Forces Letter 2

Having enjoyed playing so much I played again along the same theme.
I began as before by brayering neutral Fresco colours onto my page and this time added some Fresco Sky for added life!
I once again mixed neutral Fresco paint with Grungepaste and applied it with my palette knife, adding assorted mica flakes before it dried and a little Frantage aged Gold embossing powder.

I then built up my page with assorted wartime pages which were torn and distressed, another image of a girl with flowers, some lace and fabric. I chose  Lin Brown sentiment and stamped it onto manuscript paper. Finished it off with an anchor button to continue the forces story.
I got a lot of pleasure from this page and will progress to more of this theme. 


  1. Hazel, this is fabulous - even better, if possible, than the first one!

  2. Wow, you're definitely on a roll here Hazel. Another wonderful page and such a pretty image. I can see you're having fun.

  3. Ooh fabulous make Hazel, you're really getting into this style - fantastic xxx

  4. Really stunning Hazel.

  5. What an interesting background, so many wonderful textures.

    I think sometimes it's needed to have a break from doing challenges to get the mojo flowing again, looks like it's working!

  6. Utterly in love with this, Hazel - colours (right up my street), composition, gorgeous vintage ephemera and scraps, and the mica flakes lift it onto another level - just brilliant!
