Hello and welcome ! First of all a huge apologies as I'm late, lost track of everything and then technology let me down ! So, I won't waffle on but move straight on to hear from Lula, the winner of the Fabric and Fibres challenge.
My name is Lucyna Marynowska, aka Lula. I come from the north of Poland. Fifty-eight, retired widow, mum of two grown up boys and a happy grandma.
I started my crafting journey 5 years ago as a card maker and immediately became an addicted paper-lover.
I enjoy creating anything from cards to altered art. I'm very keen on experimenting with various types of mediums.
Recycling is also very close to my heart and I just love using ordinary items in my projects.
I love challenges to spark my creativity and making crafty friends all over the world makes me very happy.
You can find my creative project on my blog: http://ululi.blogspot.com/
I am thrilled to have been invited to guest design for Stamps and Stencils.
Thanks bunches Ladies for this wonderful opportunity! I was inspired by two things from the moodboard: lace and metal parts.
My starting point for this project was an oval passepartout which I filled with some lace.
Next some texture paste was stenciled on the surface.
When it was dry I covered all with white gesso.
I mounted some wire with beads on it, some chipboard elements, flowers and leaves.
Then I started to colour the piece with Gelatos and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.
I also rubbed some Metallic Gilding Wax to the background, mounted a small button and a metal frame with a sentiment.
A playing angel's image completed my work.
To finish off I decided to give more interest to the background by strewing some microbeads and doing some stamping.
I needed another passepartout and some wire to complete my hanger.
Hope you like it!
Thank you so much Lula for your beautiful project ! If you would like to join us for the current challenge of Colour, Texture, Shape you have plenty of time !
