Rose Scent Tilda

Hi there Magnolia friends. How is your week treating you? Are you back at work yet after your holidays? My hubby went back today and the boys and I are finding it a bit odd. It was lovely being home all together. I dont go back to work til the 11th so I have another week up my sleeve with the kids. 

I have something a bit fun to share with you today. I found a kraft frame at my local craft store for an absolute steel. I had a few different ideas to play with it, but last night I was rummaging though my stash and found these cute chippie gates from Dusty Attic and the light bulb went off. 


I painted the back of the frame with Black Gesso. Apparently it creates a nice base to be used as a black board. I've not tried it out yet but I'll let you know how it goes. The rest of the frame I base coated with white Gesso, then painted it in grey acrylic paint and then used a piece of nylon lace as a mask and dabbed on some more white Gesso to create the textured lace pattern and give it a bit of a shabby look. I love getting messy with paint :) The cute little gates were painted with silver acrylic paint.


The cute little resin bird house is by Prima. The clouds and tree branches are both cut using Doo Hickey dies. I sprayed some cheese cloth with some pale blue mist to give it a bit of a blue hue. 


All of the flowers and the pearl garland are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 


And here is the finished product! Doesn't little Rose Scent Tilda look adorable sitting there in her garden? She is coloured with Copics and I experimented a bit with the combo for her hair... I tried Y 28, E 55, YR 20, Y 23 and E 50. Her little jumpsuit is coloured with RV 95, 34, 32, 10, 000, the rose is BV 25, V 20 and BV 000.

Well that is it from me today. I hope to have a few more things to share with you soon.
Until then, have a great day!
