You and me

 Hello everyone, 

For today's AALL & Create DT project I have made a wallhanging with popsicle sticks. It is so much fun!

Here is how I made this:

I attached 5 sticks together by glueing 2 half sticks on the back. I then used a pallette knife and scraped white paint over the front of the sticks, added some stencilling and used a  blue paint pen to accentuate the blue 'snowflakes'. Later I toned it down with more white paint. 

After toning it down I added some stamping on the background. I used a light blue Archival ink and Versafine Nocturne. 

Next I stamped the penguins, ready for colouring. I used Copic Markers for colouring. I then cut them out. 

Here they are all coloured up. I also added a piece of washi tape at the bottom for them to stand one. 

After I glued everything down I added a sliver of washi tape to the left top corner to give the piece a little more balance.

I have used the following AALL & Create products:

Stencil #114 Art by Janet Klein
#604 Penguin by Tracy Evansaall
#563 Follow your own path by Tracy Evans
#531 Texture Florals by Tracy Evans

Washi tape #23 Vivre by Janet Klein

  1. So wonderful. I popped over from Facebook to find out how you got the white wash look and stamping on the popsicle sticks. And of course I love the penguins!

  2. What a GREAT idea, Corrie, and if I had this hanging on my wall, how could I be anything but happy?!! I love all the textural elements on this piece, starting with that white paint scraped on. Well done, my friend.
