A word very close to my heart!

Hello there! Its Rachel here with another take on this months challenge set by Sue - words with meaning. This time I decided to use just one word and decorate the letters in it in different ways. The word is craft - its got me through allsorts that life has thrown at me and so for that alone is incredibly important. I know many of you find it really helpful too!

Here's the final piece...

Each letter was firstly gessoed then painted in acrylic paint in a shade of green or yellow. Then I treated them separately.

The C was treated with the Tim Holtz distress mosaic kit.

Next for the R .... this was stamped and painted...

The A was simply stencilled ...

F was stencilled with crackle paste and then gone over with distress oxide. I also stamped too.

T was painted in crackle glaze and gone over in more paint.

I hope you like my ideas ... perhaps you can decorate a word that is important to you and enter our challenge?

Words with Meaning

Hello and welcome ! It's time to kick off the new challenge, it's Sue here and I'm your host for the month. I may be an old romantic but I love to see quotes and meaningful sayings on pieces of art. These can be quotes that are particularly meaningful to you or family sayings ! So, for this challenge I want to see your words taking centre stage, big and bold ! Remember, as always, you need to include some stamping or stencilling or both !

The DT have created some fantastic projects to get your creative juices flowing ! Click on each member's name to visit their blogs.

Now it's over to you !
