Helen is back!

This week at PaperArtsy, Helen Chilton is back, with some amazing techniques and wall hangings.
So following Helen's idea, I took my door hanging from last week, flipped it over and decorated the other side. Now I can change it around for a different feel.
I've gone a lot simpler in my overall feel, less is more (I hope!)

The background is Nougat and Ice Blue Fresco Finish Paints.
The flowers are from Hot Pick 1009, and stamped onto Crackly Tissue Paper.
I then painted them with watered down Ice Blue and Pea Coat.
The Crunchy Paper was embossed, and I added some Nougat to highlight the pattern.
The words are from Petal Plate 3, and stamped in Sepia on cream card.
Finally the flower is the same as yesterday, 3 layers : card, crunchy paper and Crackly Tissue, painted with Nougat, Irish Cream and Chocolate pudding, with the word script on the middle layer stamped in Claret.

  6. I like the less is more - it's all in the details! Great use of textures and colurs to give a lovely elegant feel to your piece. Another winner and totally different tot the other side :)
