"Welcome Sign"
Using a chipboard album cover I created this Welcome sign to hang near my front door its approx 22cm wide and 16cm tall.

I painted the chipboard a pale green then applied a fiber paste which is the same as texture paste but has small pieces of fibers in it to give more texture I then repainted it in the green and inked the edges in a dark brown ink.
I also painted the lace with the same colour green & used Impasto gel to attach the lace, There are a few 7cm lime green mulberry flowers folded in half and added to the background (they are a little hidden in the end but add colour around the flower clusters) I added some ribbon to the top and bottom and then painted the whole thing in Impasto gel including over the lace, flowers & ribbon, however I did leave a couple of the mulberry flower petals sticking up along with some of the bows on the ribbon.

Taking some chipboard alphas I painted them the same green and added white crackle paint over the top, once it had dried I just chipped a bit of the crackle paint away here and there to make some of the green shin through. I then attached them with glue and painted Impasto gel over the top.

I have used a combination of Green Tara flowers including one of the new release flowers Sakura in green, these are fabric and so very cute and elegant.

Using my 3 favorite flowers Apple blossoms, gardenias & cherry blossoms to created the perfect colours I have glimmer misted some and adding small amounts of ink to others, by just lightly touching the tops of the flowers onto a ink pad. There are also a few roses thrown in here and there.

I have added some new fabric leaves in green and white here and there.
And created this wonderful spider flower from green tara string. To finish it off I used a glitter clear spray and sprayed the whole thing to give it a little sparkle.
