Don't quit your daydream toadstools wall hanging plaque - Day 86 of my 366 day challenge


Don't quit your daydream toadstools wall hanging plaque - 
Day 86 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

"Don't quit your daydream" is a great quote and so decided to use this in my latest project.

I painted the wall plaque (approx 16x9,5cm) first of all in Pebeo black acrylic gesso paint and gave it a couple of coats after the first one had dried.

Don't quit your daydream toadstools wall hanging plaqueI then coloured the toadstools image from the Nature colour pad from Chameleon using red, beige, blue and green alcohol markers and stuck it on the plaque using Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue. Once it was dry I varnished it with several coats of the Zig Varnish Marker pen and again allowed it to dry.

I added a border of Kraft paper which I had cut out using the Pearl border dies from Tattered Lace. I stuck it on using the thin strips of foam pads from Stix2.

I stamped the "Don't quit your daydream" stamp (from the Painted Inspirations set from Altenew) using a black pigment ink from DoCrafts Papermania and embossed it with their clear powder. I placed it on some black card and added it to the plaque with a double lot of foam pads. I also added a few clear Crystal drops from Nuvo to make them look like raindrops and let them dry.

I then added a length of white picture cord and knotted it at the back and strengthened it with some hot glue.
