Hi you all! I think I need to start thinking of some elegant titles for my posts; every time I start a post I forget all the ideas I had! It's Tuesday again, so time for a new tag. Last week it was the letter 'A', which means this week is 'B'. I think it could be 'C' next week....
My theme is B for Botany. I kept the colours simple, mostly in the brown/cream range, and the flowers look dry and brown - it's winter. The butterflies are a little reminder that spring will come sooner or later!
And I have made a shadow box for the 'Things with wings' challenge over at ABAC.
The box has been covered with strips of paper, painted with bronze and gold acrylic paint, and the edges have been dipped into gold glass glitter (Say that 10 times quickly!) I filled the background with some flowers and a leaf in turquoise, and bedded the larger head, with stamped and fussy cut wings in it. The gold thistle was left over from Christmas decorations. The large wings on the smaller head have been cut with TH's dragonfly die from paper which has been hand painted and stamped. The heads were made in a mold and polished with Inka gold in copper.
Here I have 'framed' my shadow box, together with some other strange, winged creatures.
Have a good day you all, keep warm or cool as the case may be, take care, and thanks a lot for visiting!
