Hope you are enjoying your Sunday.
Today I have another mixed media piece to share. I used another of the round Camembert-cheese boxes. This time I gave it a quick coat of gesso, and then used a small diamond stencil to add some texture with structure paste over part of the top and sides. It was then painted with Vivacolour rust paint. I sprinkled Frantage vintage EPs in gold and copper over it and heat dried it. I used some patina cream from Deco Art to add more definition.
I recently got given a bag of dried flowers and seed pods to use as a decoration. I took a few out of the bowl and gave them some blobs of acrylic paint and then dipped them into Frantage gold EP:
The butterfly was crackled, distressed with the Deco Art patina and also dipped into Frantage gold. It curled a little when I heated it, which gave a wonderful effect:
Then I used my heat gun to put it together to make a little vintage garden.
I am linking to Mixed Media Monthly, May flowers; Anything but cute, vintage garden, and to Moo Mania and More, Flowers
We saw the sun for a few minutes this morning, but that was it; the rest of the day was cold and wet.
Chocolate Chip muffins are good as a sunshine substitute, so I baked some today, as my neighbour was celebrating her birthday.
(Sandy, you wanted to see food again!)
And today the female Jay came and got food for her brood, but not before she had had a big row with her husband and sent him back to the nest! She is darker than her Mr, a little larger and can eat much quicker than he can! She also has a crest of feathers on the back of her head, looks a bit like a punk!
Have a good day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
