Fly

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you all today? Did you have a nice weekend?

Today's project created yesterday was inspired by watching Mike from Kraftyhands demoing at IndigoBlu on Saturday! Mike upcycled a coffee jar, I didn't have one so made a canvas in a frame which was one of my purchases from IndigoBlu


This is a close up of the dimension and colours.


Step by Step

1. I first painted Gesso over the canvas, I embossed some card and adhered to the base of the canvas.
2. I then gave a coat of black Gesso, once this was dried I then arranged my embellishments.
3. I used metal leaves, crocheted, paper and metal flowers, beads, dragonfly and letters to create the word "Fly".
4. I gave 2 coats of black Gesso letting them dry between each coat.
5. To finish off I dry brushed Pebeo Iridescent paints in green, purple and pink to add highlights to all the elements and embossed card.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

That Craft Place - Words 
2 Creative Chicks #23 - Anything Goes
Altered Eclectics - Anything Goes (Mixed Media)
