Inspired by..Vettriano

Questa settimana su CraftBarn ci siamo fatti ispirare da un dipinto. Io ho scelto Vettriano e un suo inno all'estate. E ho deciso di alterare un ombrellino, si', proprio quelli di carta da cocktail!
This week at  CraftBarn we took inspiration to make our pieces from a framework or a painter...I choose Vettriano and I altered a little paper umbrella. Hope you like it!
L'interno/ The back:
E una card, visto che c'ero ( mi sto abituando a farne sempre di piu')
A one layer card:
Here's the step by step.
Qui il passo passo


 Materials I used
Pebeo Studio acrylic auxiliaries: Gesso 250 ml 
Crafty Individuals White Silk Card - Regency Satin  
Cosmic Shimmer Mister: Teal Wash
CI-256 - Handy sentiments

E siccome nel pacchettino c'erano 6 ombrellini, non ho potuto resistere dal farne un altro:
And since those paper umbrellas were six on the same package...can't resist to alter a second one:
 
 I used just one collage stamp, CI-272 - Seaside Treasures from CraftyIndividuals.
Ho usato un solo timbro, CI-272 - Seaside Treasures della CraftyIndividuals.

Hello Miss Gio, I looooove your umbrella its sooooo pretty, love the frill and the car looks great with it. The card is beautiful, with the vintage stamped car and the lovely spritzing, it looks awesome, the second umbrella is gorgeous, love how you used the stamped paper then gessoed over it then all that fussy cutting, you are the BOMB Miss Gio, soooo creative, thanks for sharing your creativity, have a wonderful weekend.
