Morning lovelies........hope you're all well, sending hugs to those that want them!
Well, Saturday's shopping trip was a success, you wouldn't believe how hard it
is to find jeans for my 6 foot 3 17 year old son, we got there in the end....
......cost a small fortune though.....and then of course, I had to have a little trip
to our 2 craft shops lol!
As you might know, I've recently been having a play at mixed media....
.....and I'm loving it! Not been brave enough to show all my makes yet but this
one I'm quite pleased with. I started with a blank 5x7 canvas, gave it 2 coats of
gesso then a coat of mica pearls....while that was still wet I dabbed it all
over with some scrunched up kitchen roll. Next I added some torn pieces of
paper & then to get the circles I used a bottle lid dipped in paint & dabbed all
over in random patterns. I made the heart with some air dry clay then when
dry coloured with a Copic, added a thick layer of clear crackle paint. Once that
was dry I dabbed a dark brown ink pad over the surface then wrapped the
heart in some wire I pinched from my jewellery making supplies! Wings, key
& cogs are all die cuts, I painted the wings & the key with mica paints, curled
the wings slightly to give some movement & then hung the key to the heart
with another piece of jewellery wire. Lastly, I added the cogs, some gems,
some clear dew drops & the words that I cut with my Silhouette!
Phew, long post there..........thanks for sticking with me lol!
Gonna go tackle some housework now........wish me luck!
Don't forget, I have candy here........would love you to enter!
