Wendy Vecchi Stylee

Good Morning!!! It's Monday, which means we have a new theme at...


In the style of Wendy Vecchi,

I had soo much fun creating this art piece with lots of Wendy Vecchi stamps... Alphabetically art, art colors life, botanical artlive and make artnature's art.

Now, I could have gone to town with Wendy's fantastic style but lets face it She so "OWNS" it!!!
What I have done it taken some of her wonderful techniques and created something a little different.

I have used Claudine Hellmuth Gesso Primer Paint to cover all the art parts, leaves, and sample pack. A bit like Wendy does with white archival ink!


Then I've stamped a whole lot of her wonderful background stamps in coffee archival because Wendy certainly encourages that one!


 We all know flowers are one of Wendy's favorite things to create so I made sure to incorporate plenty into my project.

Die cut some from distress Coredinations cardstock with a gorgeous sculpture flower centre, stamped a few, punched teeny tiny ones and even some Clearly for Art whiteout. Hope you can see there's one rolled rose in whiteout and another of Wendy's dimensional roses with a background stamp in pearl dabber and coffee edges.

I wanted to create a piece that looked like it had been around for a few years, I have sanded and scuffed all the edges and generously inked with distress inks! My favourite part is the flower art part base to the body form. I used white embossing powder with the floral background stamp and it looks like lace yummy will definitely use that method again! My dimensional book page body form wouldn't be complete without a pair of wings!!!
You can find all the goodies at...

Hope it inspires and why not pop round to the rest of the team's inspiring projects!!!

Kim I adore everything about this. I love the colours, the feminine details, all the flowers - sigh - and how everything is so beautifully draped and placed. The white and purple tones look truly amazing. She is a real beauty and I could look all day...

Kim this piece is amazing. Love all of the intricate pieces you used on it. The round dress form is just too cool. Love that idea! Your stand is stunning and love all the flowers, spools, leaves you put together. The sanding of everything to give it that real shabby chic look is absolutely perfect! <3 Candy
