Well Its been a long day with collecting firewood, doing papers and my kiddies. I thought I would have a bit of a wind down on the computer for a bit before I get the kids settled for the night. I have two items to share tonight. First a canvas that I started a couple of nights ago when I went round to a friend’s place for a scrappin night. ( Thanks Lydia, it was an awesome night and very lovely meeting your family) Now I can not take credit for the design of this canvas. I was passing a shop window the other day in Mornington and spotted this poster size art work, completely covered in silk flowers and a big butterfly in the middle. I instantly thought that I could do something like it, but on a smaller scale and with handmade flowers. This is what I came up with.
This is a close up of the butterfly, I used the Tim Holtz Butterfly Die and Tim Holtz Tissue paper on the back wings, a bit of clear crackle paint for texture on the outer wings, and glossy Accents for the centre. I made all the flowers with the Tim Holtz flower die, inked them up and added a bit of glimmer mist. The second pic is of the whole canvas. Sorry its a bit blurry, Ruby was grabbing me all the time.
The other day I went out to the mail box and found this nice big fat envelope full of awesome ATC cards, It was the first time I had done this and found it very exciting looking at what everyone had come up with. The themes were “In my Garden” and ” What I want” . Heres a wee test for you, can you guess which ones are mine ? Ok The kiddies are starting to lose the plot, so its time for me to go. Thanks for looking, please do leave a comment and as always HAPPY SCRAPPIN!
