Hels Sheridan Workshop, Melt pot Canvas.

Another great Workshop at Daisys,
Hels ( showed us ways to use the melt pot, most of us have one but don't use it.
Loved all the techniques and how my canvas turned out.

For me i was quite bold with my colours.

I came home with all the bits in a bag, as i wanted to add the natural fibres and colour the flowers and heart with Maya paints as i did not get the colours quite right with the melt pot.
Played around with it and now happy with the result.

This one is Hels canvas, don't they look different in different colours, everyone in the class used a variety of colours.

Thanks for visiting. xx

Mixed media card, with prima butterflies and lots of texture.

At last summer has arrived, I've been very busy in the garden so thought i would photograph my latest project in the garden as its butterflies.

Here is a mixed media card which started as a piece of cardboard from a box,
I tore around the edges and then painted it with white vintage chalky paint,
added a little distress inks stormy sky and peeled paint.
on the edges i dry painted some Maya Gold Nightblue to add some depth and shine.
Stamped Finnabair Piece text and Tim Holtz stencil Doily with black soot to add some interest.
Sprayed with Goosebumps shimmer texture.
The butterflies are Prima stamps, stamp -n-add, butterfly wings, coloured them with stormy sky and peeled paint distress inks, then glittered the edges with black chunky glitter - midnight snow from cosmic shimmer, glued to the card, then stamped the bodies and glittered.
Really pleased with this card and now looking forward to using the dragonflies that came with the butterflies.
