Hello friends and welcome to my new followers. Thank you so much for stopping by today to see what I have made for the Funkie week of the Frilly and Funkie challenge. Our host is Rebecca and her challenge is A Grateful Welcome. She wants us to create a home decor piece that would be used to decorate our homes for Thanksgiving. If you don't celebrate Thanksgiving, you can make any piece that would convey gratitude.
I hope you will check out the wonderful projects on the Frilly and Funkie blog. We are excited to welcome a super talented new design team member starting with us today - Nicole Wright from Canadian Nickel Scrap'n.
The first thing I did was give the metal sign two coats of gesso to cover up the design and when dry, used Wendy's Basically Bricks stencil to randomly stencil patches of bricks with her white embossing paste. I also adhered several pieces of torn book pages in random areas. After that layer dried, I went over it all again with Wendy's Crackled embossing paste. Letting that dry again, I swiped on Brushed Corduroy distress stain. I had to rub it in with my finger as it sort of beaded up on the surface. After that and also inspired by some of Wendy's recent work, I adhered Remnant Rubs from various packs on the background.
It was finished off with two small gratitude banners - white CS stamped with a tiny print Wendy Vecchi stamp in black archival and then stamped with Orange Blossom and clear embossed.
That wraps up another Frilly and Funkie challenge for this week. I hope you will stop by Frilly and Funkie to see what the rest of the group has to spark your mojo.
