Let's move on to hear from Jennie and see what she's come up with for the current challenge 'Bring on the Bling!'
Hello everyone and how fabulous it is to be back here Guest Designing with Frilly and Funkie. I find it quite amazing that I am living on a small remote Scottish island in the middle of the North Sea but sharing my work all over the world and particularly here at Frilly and Funkie, one of my favourite challenge blogs. Those of you who have known me for a while will probably have noticed that my vintage style has changed a little over the last year with a lot more mixed media work creeping in. I really do enjoy this rather messy style of working. It is rather experimental at the moment but great fun. It makes a great change from making paper flowers, my other passion!
For the current challenge "Bring on the Bling" I decided to alter a bottle using a gem cluster bought ages ago, but which does not really fit my style these days. I had no idea whether it would take the gesso and paints, but I was very pleased with the final effect. The bottle was altered with gesso and Wendy Vecchi Crackle Paste and then colour added using Luminarte Primary Elements and Silks.
Of course I had to make some flowers! The shabby roses were made using the Tattered Florals die and my paper sprayed with the Primary Elements.
I also altered the metal butterfly and leaves using the same products. This was such a fun project and if you would like to visit my blog Live the Dream there are a few more photographs and details. Thank you so much for inviting me to be here today - it is a great honour. Thank you!
I'm sure you'll all agree that Jennie's project is another stunning piece of art ! Thank you Jennie, I'm sure this will have provided lots more inspiration for the current challenge 'Bring on the Bling!'
