This is my little bit of "Summer Sun". I made this for the UK Art Raffle . I had great fun doing this. It was a piece of mountboard covered with gesso that I kept swirling a cocktail stick through. Then I sponged it with acrylic paint in a mixture of blue, white and silver before embossing the edges silver and then random bits of blue and pearly embossing over the central bit. My hot air gun melted at this point so I had to revert to the trusty old grill once more! Then sun was an old stencil that I did twice and again sponged with acrylic paints. Only this time red, yellow, bronze and gold and also on the brad. I knew exactly how I wanted the words to go but I just didn't know how to do it. So after a cry for help on UK Scrappers someone led me to a site that will do them in spirals, waves and hearts. So there you have it, all assembled with a few sponge pads and silver wire and eyelets! I hope whoever is the lucky winner enjoys it!
