A little bit of peeled paint

Good afternoon everyone..my post is a bit early this week as I am off to Stamperama in stevenage to meet up with some fellow Patwits and a tiny bit of crafty shopping...
This week over on the Papaer Artsy blog among others we had GD Liesbeth Fidder. She did a beautiful hanging board using the peeled paint technique. I knew I wanted to have a go at this!! So I found myself a 5x7 canvas and got to work. I followed along with Liesbeth...you can see how she did it here. Although I loved the colours she had used I thought I'd go with the green frescos..honeydew,sage,and seaweed.

I used the same colours for the tag. Instead of vaseline I was going to use some textureizing clay (for hair stolen from my son) but in the end used microglaze by judikins.I mixed brown shed with cinnamon to paint over the top..loved the colour. Followed the instructions from Liesbeth added a feather and some flowers painted black and dusted with green amber treasure gold. I also added a tiny bit of copper frantage just around the edges and that's it!

Thanks for stopping by....
