Stencil Sunday – July 2016 – A decorative plaque from a broken tile

Hi!  I’m very happy to be here with a post for STAMPlorations Stencil Sunday.

 

Here’s a plaque that I created using the ARTplorations Stencil – Happy Flowers and a stamp from Trendy Birds.

It’s a a broken roof tile (I think that is what it is? Maybe one of my German friends will know?)  I found it in a pile of other broken roof tiles, pottery, shingles and bricks on a dirt road in the hills of the Oberammergau area of Germany. This was the largest piece there, most of the others were about the size of your hand. Making this plague reminded me of a  the Old Testament book of Isaiah, chapter 61.IMG_9771birdplaque

       How I made this project:

  1. Washed & dried tile.
  2. Sponged embossing ink through the flower portions of Happy Flowers – ARTplorations Stencil.

  3. Added red embossing powder & heated with heat embossing tool.
  4. Sponged embossing ink through the stem portions of Happy Flowers – ARTplorations Stencil.IMG_9772birdplaque
  5. Added green embossing powder & used heat embossing tool to set.
  6. Added yellow Gelatos to center of flowers.

  7. Sponged embossing ink all over flowers and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
  8. Stamped the bird (Trendy Birds) and the sentiment in black ink and added clear EP and heat set.IMG_8917birdplaque
  9. Added white acrylic paint to bird.
  10. Colored grass and sky with Gelatos, added clear embossing powder and heat set.
I had a lot of fun creating this plaque and I hope that you have been inspired to create your own mixed media projects! Please check out my teammates’, MariLynn’s and Susanne’s, projects here.
Thanks for stopping by!
