Triple Frame Hanging



After I returned from the AS weekend, using the products I already had, I tried to recreate the grit effect on this trio of circle frames.


I gave them all a coat of white gesso, and mixed equal amounts of matte medium and coarse pumice gel by Golden and applied to the outsides of each of the frames.


I stamped some LP oriental images onto a piece of card that I'd previously coloured with alcohol inks.


I die cut all the images with a spellbinders nesties circle die.


Unfortunately they were still too big and I had to cut them down further.


Painted the frames in little black dress and hi-lighted with treasure gold.


Finished piece hanging from the light fitting!!

I love the effect of this. The alcohol inks on the faces look great and the gritty frames have such great texture. Really nice way of using the LP images. Julie Ann xx

Oooh totally missed this Sam! It's gorgeous. I love the rough metal look you achieved on the frames and those images onto the alcohol ink background are a perfect contrast.
