Grow & Flourish by Lisa Taggart (freebie printables project)


Hello everyone. Today I'm getting a chance to share the project I made which featured in the Oct/Nov 2017 issue of the magazine providing some inspiration for the wonderful Printables free gift. Here's a reminder of what we received.


I decided to depart from my usual canvas project and this time create some collage work on a wooden triptych- just for a change.

Steps for making the project:

Choosing a colour from the flower panel, the triptych was painted with acrylic paint.



The printable sheet was printed on to smooth white card. The elements were cut out and decoupaged on top of the painted surface using gel medium.


Texture paste was stencilled on top to bring the composition together and to add texture and interest.


Next came the fun part- the inks and sprays!


I wanted to add some rusty contrast to the bright florals, so die cut flowers and railings were given the rusty treatment.


The printable flowers were shaped, edged and had gold micro beads added to the centres. The lady and girl figures were prepared for a further layer of decoupage and the sentiments were selected and inked (also Printables from the range).


The elements were assembled with some extra doodling and additional embellishments in the form of green wire, metal butterflies and blue roses
.



Well how easy was that! Thanks for having a look. Till next time,
Lisa xx
