Dare to Dream Magic by Dorthe Hansen


This Monday, I will show you a piece using one of That’s Crafty’s square white/greyboard panels as my surface, for a little magic !!








I started covering it with a light coat of the wonderful Bronze Metallic Paint, and when dry I gave it a very thin coat of Charcoal Shimmer Paint, to darken the shine a bit, on the right side. Again letting it all dry, and after, I used the beautiful Dinky stencil: Tree mask, with Archival Ink Coffee – only the half showing on the right side of the surface.

When dry, paint with Bronze Metallic Paint twice, to make it shimmer beautifully, and after the two layers have dried, paint the leaves with Pearl Metallic Paint, also twice, to give light and life to the tree. Add details onto it, to give a feeling of bark, with a Brown Writer and when satisfied draw around it all with a black Sharpie.








Now stamp the words taken from Lynne's Affirmation Set 2 and stencil the word Magic, from the Dinky Stencil Enchanted, directly onto the surface, with Archival Ink Jet black and lastly, stencil the Dinky stencil Crow, also using Archival Ink Jet Black - mask the ones around him so not to stencil more than one bird.

I wanted to use one of the heads from the new Eclectica stamp set, Everything Art and stamped her on a skeleton leaf using StazOn Spiced Chai. When layering it over a dark surface it shows beautifully. So I used a scrap of dark brown fabric and mounted it with Golden Matte Medium, turned a copper thread around it, adhered it to the surface and carefully painted the leaf around the head, with the Bronze, to show the tiny veins. I’m sorry you can’t see the shine on my photo.








The last little detail was to add a piece of wood, found on the ground, on top of a golden piece of tulle on the bottom, knotted 3 strings of cord together and adhered it to the left side of the woman panel  and adhered a metal button to the fabric too. Give Mr. Crow a bronze eye, a necklace and define his wings with a pencil dipped into the bronze paint.


I hope you all have a lovely new week.

Dorthe xx

  1. This is a very earthy and spiritual make Dorthe, I can just make out the shimmer. I do so wish people could see on photograph how the paints shimmer and shine. Fun addition of a collar/necklace to Mr Crow, it makes him extra special :))

  13. Magical - I love the subtle neutrals and how you've highlighted the leaves on the tree. Spiced Chai sounds like a delicious ink colour! And I think the face looks so beautiful over the fabric texture. This is a wonderful piece, Dorthe.
