Time for another page for the craft barn alpha challenge, this time is the letter F and we have to pick a word from Fe to Fl so I decided upon the word Fleur-De-Lys as I love these mysterious shapes!
To start with I took a sheet of tissue paper and crumpled it up, then I opened it out again, and then painted it blue, once it was dry I glued it into my journal:
Next I stamped a scroll and harlequin background stamp design in both green and red inks:
For my next step I took a strip of card stock which I die cutted using the on the edge alterations Fleur-De-Lys design.
I added a layer of green acrylic paint, and then heat set it with my heat gun to make the paint bubble up to create a texture.
Next I rubbed over the top with copper paint, you can just about see the previous green layer of paint underneath, it gives a kind of verdigris effect.
I glued this painted Fleur-De-Lys border onto my page and added a couple layers of painted and scrapbook papers and finally added a large stamped Fleur-De-Lys image, below is my finished page:
