Inspired by the this beautiful summers day....
After being stuck in traffic this morning for what should have been a 20 min journey turned into 2 hours. To top it all I had the twins in the car with me. Murder!
Anyway once home I needed to make something as my mojo went a while back and am still not sure if it is completely returned yet. I have been crochetting flowers whilst sitting in front of the telly some evenings. I bought some 30 crochet cotton which is lace fine and a tiny crochet hook so very time consuming and not alot finished either lol.
I am not all that happy about this project. Well that is not true I love the sticks and grass at the bottom lol.
I cover the canvas with molding paste and made a swirly pattern at the top and just random at the bottom.
I stuck some twigs on from my garden and covered them with marabou feathers. The flower heads are metal embellishments ( I just love metal embellies) painted and the centers are pearls also painted. The butterflies are also metal from various pieces of jewelry I no longer use. I used a couple of metallic paints on them and painted seed beads for the bodies. I sprayed over the top and sides using cosmic shimmer sprays. I rubbed a little bronze shimmer over the twigs.
That's about it really - not too much involved.
That is it for me today, back to crochet me thinks lol.
Hugz to all
