Good evening! I am very late posting this week for the sketch challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity. I was a bit late starting this project, but really wanted to use this week's fabby sketch.
For my project I have created another mixed media collage. Expect to see LOTS of these in 2014, as I am loving doing them, although I am still experimenting, so it will be interesting to see what my work looks like in a year's time. Sorry, my photo is a bit blurry.
For my base, I started with a sticky backed canvas sheet. I will mount this onto chipboard, but haven't done so yet, hence why it looks so wonky.
I then covered it with cardboard scraps, but even I am struggling to see those now.
Mediums used: distress paint, distress stain, gold gelato.
I have used a Memory Box ~ Butterfly Vine stencil, combined with texture paste at the top.
The dimensional butterflies were stamped from the Tim Holtz ~ Papillon CMS106 stamp set and cut out.I have also used these stamps as part of my background.
The image was created from a Penny Black ~ Melle Papillon stamp. Creating that dress, very nearly drove me crazy!
She is set onto a Spellbinders die cut.
The sentiment: How love will I love you?
When I showed it to my other half, he said: 'that's a bit pessimistic isn't it?' Well it comes from a love song of the same name, by Ellie Goulding.
Go check out the song if you don't know it:
Thank you for looking.
