Hels Sheridan Workshop at Our Daventry Retreat

Morning Crafters

Just wanted to share the project by Hels Sheridan at our January Daventry Retreat

Hels did a wall hanging using sprays, mica mists, flowers and embellishments

Iain, Hels and Ali

Finished Project

Close up of finished project

 Hels demoing the sprays

You need an A4 piece of card stock, we used cream
Stick die cut shapes and any texture pieces you want to add, to give dimension to the card stock

Paint over with white gesso, and dry with heat gun

Once dry, spray with colour mists, we used Dylusions

Also spray a selection of flowers and flowers.
Then spray over with a shimmer mist

This is one done using different colours

Once the card has dried
Go round each die cut shape with a black pencil to give dimension, you will find this makes them pop out.

Now cut your A4 card stock into ATC size pieces, 2.5" x 3.5"
Cut down a piece of mount board 8.5" x 11.5" and paint with black acrylic paint
Once the mount board is dry, stick your ATC pieces on.

Decorate with flowers, metal embellishment, etc
Stamp out some words onto white card using Archival black ink, edge these word pieces with a distress ink pad, colour to go with your project, and mount onto ATC's

You can frame your finished piece or attach cord and use as a wall hanging

These are a selection of finished projects by some of our lovely crafters

We hope your join in with this project
A big thanks to Hels for a great and messy day x
