Dragonfly Monolith for Visible Image

For my DT post today I've been playing with the new MDF monoliths from Visible Image again in combination with this lovely new dragonfly stamp.

Here's how I made it:

1 Add a layer of crackle paint (I used DecoArt) to the monolith, in a few places only. When dry, paint over with washes of acrylic paint (I used DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics). When working steps one and two make sure you leave room to stamp the sentiment cleanly.

2 Add some stencilling with modeling paste to give your background additional texture.

3 Add additional stamping in blue and yellow with a bottle lid and some bubble wrap.

4 Stamp the sentiment in black the wording around the edges, also in black,

5 Stamp the dragonfly twice, cut out and colour with paint washes. Stamp the body oneot the background - this is so the legs can show. Layer the cut out images on top.

6 To finish simply embellish with painted flowers and die cut leaves.

Thanks for stopping by today! You can find the Visible Image shop here.

  2. This is just gorgeous! Love it!

  3. Love the monoliths. Hubby has been making mine out of wood for me but these would be so much easier. What a FABULOUS creation you made on this one Katy. Completely ADORE your dragonfly. Truly one of the prettiest ones EVER - and I LOVE dragonflies so I'm a critic!!! And you created the perfect world for him too - your background is just STUNNING. The colors just make me feel like spring is almost here... not too bright but like the beginning of the season. It's just CHARMING. XX j.
