On a Saturday in January 2019, I attended Kay's class on the "Spring Plaque".
I was very impressed and decided to purchase a second kit which I completed this week.
I painted all the items with white Gesso and then covered with a yellow and green Pebeo paint.
The background "Bugs" Mask/Stencil is by Creative Expressions. Using a Large Grain Gel, mixing the gel with Pebeo translucent brown with a little white for definition. Having left the bugs to dry overnight I was surprised and delighted that they had turned from a dirty sludgy colour to a bright shiny dark brown.
I used, from my craft stash, Creative Expression's Sue Wilson die "Fern Fronds", a set of 2 dies code CED1518 and also Tim Holtz's Sizzix Thinlets dies, set of 4 code 658759 but prefer the fern fronds. Having finished the ring I decided that, for a bit of fun, to glue in small Googly eyes as bugs and beetles who love over wintering and hiding away.
The plaque is being supported with Tim Holtz Alterations Small Easel die 657187 but I used strong card from an old envelope for strength.
I am calling this plaque "You are being watched".
