Farewell from the March Muse - Lynn Montcrieff

As March draws to a close my term as March Muse is complete. It has been a privilege to spend this time at Gingersnap Creations and an honour to be the first Muse. Everyone has made me feel so welcome and I would like to say thank you for the wonderful comments that have been posted. Ali and Shar, thank you so much for handing me this wonderful opportunity.

Here's one final project I'd like to share with you:

  • Spray lace/net with Adirondack Butterscotch Colourwash, laying thin white card underneath to create a pattern on the card. Leave to dry.
  • Stamp Flapper from The Stampsmith onto cream glossy cardstock.
  • Tint with Distress Inks in Spiced Marmalade and Tea Dye.
  • Gently spray Adirondack Espresso Colourwash onto image creating a mottled effect.
  • Distress image by abrading the edges and use an emery board to distress further. Sponge ink onto edges.
  • Layer a printed transparency onto the lace adding the stamped image on top.
  • Add cream lace to the top of the panel.
  • Attach three beads onto a florist's pin and attach this to the lace.
  • Tear a piece of the prepared cardstock and stamp Au Revoir.
  • Cut a thin strip of orange tulle and thread through a vintage button. Adhere to panel.
I eagerly await the introduction of the next Muse, their artwork and the artwork of all the Muses to follow.

Thank you,

Lynn Montcrieff
