Fabric Hanging

Hi all hope you are enjoying this beautiful weather we are having. I have been out in the garden almost all day! I wanted to do the paper artsy challenge this week and was stumped as to what to do...On day one Penny Nuttall did a beautiful fabric hanging which you can see here..so I thought fabric,stencils,paint..hmmm

So this is what I came up with..It was very hot in my shed today so I have to admit I didn't spend loads of time on my piece. I used a Lin brown stencil on some calico (Ithink it's calico)..I used two of the green fresco paints and when that was dry I went over it lightly with chalk to knock it back a bit.

I had made a stencil with my TH dress form die and used this to stencil on some grunge paste which I painted when it dried, added some lace for he skirt and some black pearls. I then used LB04 and fresoc paint to stamp some flowers onto the background. I stamped,coloured and cut out some butterflies and stuck them on. Lastly I used my cropodile and eyelets and threaded ribbon through the top to hang. I didn't have a suitable word or words so may add them later....

Thanks for stopping by............
