A Ocean Vintage - Part 1
Hey There Crafty Friends!
I'm here today to share my latest Polkadoodles creation for the BLOG and Ive gone a little Ocean Vintage.
Ive used the gorgeous Digi stamp Winnie Mermaid Mermazing

This one was a little tricky to paint as I had to reduce the size of the image to fit into the heart frame. She is only about 1 1/2 inches, so I painted her with my finest brush using Distress Re-Inker Walnut Stain. I then added Crackled Accents and when dried added more Walnut Stain in the cracks to create a more Vintage effect.

 The Heart frame and Seahorse  I made with a mould and Airdry clay. The other bits and pieces are from my stash of metals and charms which Ive collected over the years. The flowers are all handmade. Its great to save everything from previous projects regardless of their colour, as they are great for these sorts of projects, as once they are stuck down everything is covered with Gesso before you paint.
  I used Prima Alchemy Paints and waxes to great this effect.
When finished rub a little wax over the raised edges to accentuate areas.

Below is the actual size of Winnie which will be part 2 of my next project coming soon.

I hope you like it :D
Thanks so much for stopping by Crafty friends and see you soon
