Morning, I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my other designs over the last few days. Today I am sharing the Door Handle sample I made for the launch of Leonie Pujol's new collection.
Once again I forgot to take step by step photos, so my only option was to make it again to show you. I have to admit that while making this i had a disaster with the masks, my spray was faulty and by the time I realised that water was pouring out it was too late. So I have altered the final step and used the stencil to add the two words rather than the original design. I have included both photos at the end. I think I like both ways.
I painted the MDF hanger with 2 coats of white gesso. Once dry I stamped my sentiment in place, I used a sentiment stamp from Bee Crafty.
Next, I positioned my masks, using Crafters Companion Stick n Spray (re-positionable adhesive spray). Then I added my stamps in the areas I wanted. I stamped around the small art stencil with solid stamps as I wanted the inside to just be the ink.
Then I masked of the mid section with copier paper and washi tape. I wanted this area to remain white to highlight the sentiment.
I then used Pebeo Drawing Gum to mask all of the open stamps before sprinkling Brushos across the surface. I used Violet,Scarlet,Cobalt Blue and Emerald Green. Before I spritzed this with water to activate the colours I added yellow Ink spray in a couple of places.
I allowed this to dry, but as I mentioned before, the water completely ruined the masked words and therefore I decided to stencil the same words using Indigo Blu Sleeping Beauty and Vodka Martini.
On the original I used Leonie's bubble stamp inside the words and coloured with alcohol markers, For this I used the same stamp but coloured using a white Sharpie marker.
Lastly with both Door Hangings, I removed the drawing Gum and used alcohol markers to colour them. Here are both finished projects.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog, I hope that you have enjoyed this step by step. Please stop by again soon. Take care xx
