Fly

Hello again!
So, second project in a row from me with no paint on it.....what's going on?!!
he he he.....its nice to force yourself into different styles sometimes!!
Here is my mini layout (or panel? is it a layout if it has no photo???!) for today... 'Fly'..
Lots of different textures and substrates used here, starting off with a square of Kraft card. I did very little to this base, just a squirt or two of Peacock Feathers Distress reinker mixed with water, and some splats of both that colour ink and Vintage Photo. I edged the square with the Vintage photo too. Teeny bit of stamping, again using those two colours...
The flower top left is cut from sticky backed canvas, dyed using Peacock Feathers Distress stain, and edged with Vintage Photo...
The other large flower is created from Kraft Glassine paper. Crumpled up, inked (Peacock Feathers again!) sprayed with water and then sprinkled with Perfect Pearls. The water mixing with the Perfect Pearls forms a thin, paint like shimmery wash. Cut out, and assembled into the flower shape...
I also used Glassine for the two flourishes on my panel.
The focal image is a card from the gorgeous Jenni Bowlin Vintage deck (this image is in the silhouette 2 pack). I just inked lightly round the edges, and placed it centrally in my design...
The four blue flowers are very easy to make rolled 'roses'. Simply cut a spiral shape from card, then roll up to form the rose shape. Glue the end underneath the flower to secure, and you're done! I've coated the flowers with Glue N Seal, the covered them with Rock Candy Dry Stickles.
I glued all the elements down, then added in the final touches. Two small junkyard findings light bulbs, to be precise! I removed the words that were originally on the bulbs simply by scraping them off!
Now, I'm not normally a gem kind of girl, but these particular colours are just perfect for this project! These are Prima Say It In Crystal Rounds.
The last thing I did was to give the whole thing a spritz and splatter with gold drawing ink. I covered up the main image so that would stay pristine, but gave the rest a thorough splatting! This also helps 'tone down' the gems a little, a bit of distressing does no harm!
So there you have it!
See you soon,
Love Trish x
