Ho deciso di utilizzare Tissue Paper e Collage Plain per il background della mia cornice! Sono innamorata di questa Dolls e mi piaceva l'idea di utilizzarla come punto focale insieme a questo bellissimo fiore.
Vi lascio le foto con lo step by step e una breve spiegazione!

I decided to use Tissue Paper and Collage plain for the background of my frame! I am in love with this Doll and I liked the idea of using it as a focal point together with this beautiful flower.
Here are the photos with the step by step and a short explanation!

Ho iniziato come sempre col gesso dopo aver disegnato con la matita la forma della cornice che ho utilizzato per avere l'idea precisa del punto in cui andava posizionata.
Passo successivo Texture Pastecolorata con Distress paint Pumice Stone e stencil di Tim Holtz su due angoli.
Sugli altri due angoli ho usato la Crackle paste di Decoart.
Per l'interno della cornice ho usato Collage plan timbrandolo con un timbro di Wendy Vecchi che mi piace moltissimo e con l'aiuto del disegno fatto in precedenza ho potutpo incollarlo esattamente dove lo volevo.

I started as always with white gesso after drawing the shape of the frame with a pencil to get the precise idea of where it will be place.
Next step Texture Paste mixed with  Pumice Stone Distress paint and stencil by Tim Holtz on two corners.
On the other two corners, I used Decoart's Crackle paste.
For the inside of the frame I used Collage Plain stamping it with a Wendy Vecchi stamp that I like very much and with the help of the drawing I did before I could paste it exactly where I wanted it.

Per colorare il fiore e le foglie sulla Tissue paper ho utilizzato vari Distress Crayons, Distress oxide e Distress Ink pad per colorare i fogli di Heavystock da usare con diverse fustelle di Tim Holtz( come semre la lista dei materiali in fondo al post!).

To color the flower and the leaves on the Tissue paper I used various Distress Crayons, Distress oxides. Distress Ink pads to paint I'll use  Heavystock I'll use with different Tim Holtz dies (like the list of materials at the bottom of the post!).

A questo punto ho incollato il fiore e sono passata agli altri abbellimenti!
 Nelle foto sotto vedete i materiali che ho utilizzato per completare la cornice, gli angoli della tela e la serratura in metallo!

At this point I glued the flower and I moved on to the other embellishments!
In the pictures below you see the materials I used to complete the frame, the corners of the canvas and the metal locket!

Oh Barbara this looks absolutely fantastic!! The textures are out of this world, - I love how you coloured the texture paste with paint, and how the brighter colour tones contrast with the more neutral background. It gives such a fabulous effect! I also adore the way the flowers drape around the frame, surrounding that sweet little girl.
Thanks so much for playing in the challenge!

What a beautiful project Barbara! I love that little girl as well - and she looks so pretty sitting on that wonderfully colored tissue flower - your paste stenciled bricks in opposite corners are so well done and the flowers on the frame are a lovely mix of colors! xx

Apologies, that should read 'cracked background' ...xx

Your fairy girl is charming, perched on her tissue paper flower, but it's those trailing vines of wisteria around the top of the frame which have completely won my heart - beautiful! - and your gloriously realistic brick wall texture too. A magical piece.

Wow, Barbara! I'm pretty much speechless! I love everything about your gorgeous panel from the authentic looking brickwork to the vibrant flower for the paper doll to sit on! (And everything in between.) I love how you've used the die cut flowers! Thank you so much for your step by step tutorial, because there are so many techniques I would like to try. Amazing work of art! Hugs! Sara Emily
