"Love you"
by Charmane Sharp

Charmane with you today,
to share the beautiful 2Crafty Mandala Panel
I decorated to remember my husbands 50th birthday.

Celebrated a few years ago in Bali,
it's lovely in this time of isolation to reflect
on the wonderful memories we've shared together.

2Crafty chipboard used...

10' Decorative Panel - Mandala 1
Love you - Title
Foliage set 6
Decorative Disc set 2
Pointed Doily Frames
Flourish Adornment set 1

I wanted a Shabby Chic finish to the Mandala Panel so I sponged on some Coral
 and blue Paint. Then I dry brushed some Gesso over the top for a worn finish.
I applied some wax through a new Finnabair stencil to my background paper
 along with some Lindys spray before adhering the Mandala.

The title received the same shabby chic finish but with Coral and Gold paint. 

Once I painted the Decorative Disc I placed my Art pebble in the centre. 
While damp I bent it around the pebble for a great textural effect.

This paint effect was giving me the shabby chic feel I was after,
so I continued it on the Pointed Doily Frame in Blue that I tucked under
the photo. Also the Flourish Adornment in Coral that I placed on the left corner
of my photo and then added flowers on top of it.

The foliage was lightly painted in Blue to compliment my project and they 
look lovely placed under  the flowers. You can see more of the Flourish adornment
 in this photo too.

Thanks for visiting the blog today and
I hope I have inspired you to create with one of the
2Crafty Decorative Panels.

Until next time,
