I am thrilled to have invited by "A Vintage Journey" blog team to be a Pinworthy Guest Designer.
The theme chosen is "The Magic Of Three", and this is what I have created.
I began with a piece of Acrylic paint Board measuring 12"x8", and created a textural background. This consisted of grungepaste through a doily stencil, cheesecloth, lace, hessian, manuscript paper and crocheted doily.
All were secured down with dollops of gesso.
My piece is a dedication to my Dad's sister Joan. A wonderful lady whom I admired very much. A quiet, unassuming lady who was always gentle and kind. She had a twin sister who was the more flamboyant of the two, and Joan just blended into the background.
I copied a photo, framed it and added treasure gold to my frame.
Here is where the 3's come in. There are 3 wooden hearts, 3 Roses and 3 other flowers. I added the word Love, and some die cut foliage.
The gold effects are created by melting some Frantage Embossing powders, Aged Gold and Shabby White.
There is a little script stamping in the background and it is framed with Aged gold Embossing Enamel.
So, here is my lovely Auntie Joan, I aspire to be kind and gentle like her!
