Cutting Flowers

Working on finishing up the Artventure course by Wilna Furstenberg and loving these beautiful florals she designed. I’m using the Silhouette Portrait to cut them.

Stencils and Achromatic Colors

Die cuts from Wilna Furstenberg.  Cut them out with the Silhouette Portrait then stenciled them using gel matte medium with some white acrylic paint.  For the grayish colors behind the other cut outs, I used calligraphy ink by Parker, and added a little bit of water to lighten up the ink.  Patterned paper by Amy Tangerine patterned paper, ephemera by Pink Paislee, doily for date from a FB swap., and bade by Studio Calico.

Writing with Acrylic

Writing with paint was a challenge.  I used Wilna Furstenberg’s premade script and painted over it as she did but it’s not as easy as she made it seem.  I enjoyed it though and hope to continue working on my text painting.  Used Amy Tangerine patterned paper and ephemera pieces by Teresa Collins.  Love badge by Studio Calico.  Acrylic paint by Reeves.
