Powertex Poppies...



Hello...and Happy Easter to you all...
and WoW...what an Easter weekend it has been, here in the UK!
Good Friday was an absolutely gorgeous day...totally Springlike, with beautiful sunshine and singing birds...Saturday and Sunday daytime wasn't so great
...THEN...
Storm Katie invited herself over!!!
Sunday night into Monday was horrendous!! She left a trail of destruction around the South, but on the scheme of things, with just minor damage to the front gate, we got away with it!
I hope you're all safe xx

Anyways...today I thought I'd share with you a canvas I made using Powertex products.


I've brushed Ivory Powertex over the surface of the canvas.
Added  Easy Structure through a script stencil to give it some background texture.
Adhered the cotton cleaning mop threads and fabric strands using Powertex.
Brushed on some extra Ivory Powertex in places and sprayed Green Bister, which reacts with the Powertex to form wonderful crackles. 


Made some fabric poppies...dried them and coloured using Powertex Powercolour Pigments, mixed with Easy Varnish...
Added medium 3D balls to the centres, using Powertex to 'glue' them...
when dry - dry brushed Black Powercolour pigment and then a dab of Gold to finish. 


I'm just loving the Powertex products...there is soooo much you can do with them...
the only problem is finding enough hours to play! :) 

I have entered this into:

That's Crafty - Red and Green Challenge

Have a great week

Happy Crafting
