That Craft Place Challenge Time..... Inspired by a Film.

I'm back!! 
Today, That Craft Place, is launching another of their fab challenges and for once, I have some inspiration to show you!!
The theme for this challenge is
Inspired by a film
This style of challenge are my favourites.
With it being Valentines day yesterday I chose to go for a good old soppy film.....
Love, Actually
The stamp is an exclusive club kit Marci from La La Land Crafts which I just totally adore.  I have used a combination of dies and my cameo to make the layers.  The flowers, trim. leaves and ceramic angel are from TCP.
Alice in Wonderland
This time I used the Alice in Wonderland digis from La La Land Crafts, (yes loving these at the moment!).  I used them to decorate Lisa's fabulous standing mushroom MDF laser cut.   If you haven't checked out what she is doing you really should.... the options are endless!!  I sprayed this with aerosol primer and then gave it a light even coat of gesso.  I use this method as the aerosol gives a really smooth finish and covers really well, the only problem being it doesn't really like be painted on.  I find a light coat of gesso really helps with this.... it doesn't need to be thick as the whiteness is already achieved, its just a better surface to paint onto.  I cut various different tufts of grass using my cameo.  The images were also printed and cut using the cameo softwear which saves hours of fussy cutting!!!  Then to make this more 3D I used small off cuts from acrylic packaging to make six tabs I then stuck them to the back of the images (top and bottom), to stand them away from the mushrooms.  I then finished it off by covering the front edge with more grass.
Alice in Wonderland is one of my all time favourites and I have been waiting for an idea to use with these mushrooms, so this just had to happen!!
Check out what other films have inspired the DT...... there is quite a selection
