Walnut Hollow featuring Ann Butler Designs

Hi there and welcome to a special hop with Walnut Hollow and Ann Butler Designs.
Several talented designers have gotten together to create works of art using products from Walnut Hollow and Ann Butler Designs.  Be sure to visit each of the blogs listed below as we wouldn't want you to miss any of their awesome designs.

I worked with the following products:

Ann Butler Designs


I started with a couple of layers of Gesso.  You can also see the Lilac paint on the insides of the handles.


I stamped the long sides with two of the Diamond patterned stamps.  These were stamped in Lilac and Berry inks and then a light layer of Gesso was applied once the inks were dry.  I added some Black Enamel dots and doodles in black permanent ink.

Next, I painted the Berry paint on the inside bottom of the tray, let it dry and applied Gesso over the top.  The Berry paint came through the Gesso and created a pretty pink backdrop for the flowers.




The edges of the tray were painted in Limelight paint and then I added some Gesso with my finger to create a aged/washed look.  I finished off them off with some more Enamel dots and doodles.


The flowers were stamped in Aquamarine and Limelight inks.  Once dry, I outlined them in black permanent marker and added some doodled dots and Diamond Glitter Glue to finish off the tray.

Be sure to visit each of the blogs below for much more inspiration.
