Here's something I was working on at 4 this morning!……...

Hi Everyone

I hope you are all looking forward to a fabulous weekend.  I will be posting another tutorial shortly but I couldn't wait to share what it is I will be showing you how to make!

I can't tell you what my hands looked like at 4 this morning!  I did take a minute to peel it and wash it all off before I jumped into bed, promise!  This canvas forms part of an audition for Finnabair's Creative Team and I was inspired by some of my lovely Finnabair products and I was so please with how it was going that I couldn't stop!  I was so enthralled I didn't even realise the time!!!

As you know Finn has a wonderful way of combining unusual bits and bobs and combining them with art products to make unique and beautiful artworks and this canvas was inspired by her.  I combined metal elements with paint and beads and glitter and suddenly a magical flower blooms!

I created my own texture paste by mixing rust mica powder with transparent 3D Matte Gel for lovely sparkly texture accented with Bronze micro beads and Midnight Blue glass glitter - Yum!

 On the tutorial you will see how I used lace and pearl trims to make pretty textured borders.  I warn you this technique is not for the faint hearted nor those that don't want to get their hands dirty!!!  I am still picking off little bits of brown paint ;-)

As you can see I had a wonderful time and I picked a word that sums up this piece to finish the canvas.

So keep an eye out for the tutorial and keep your fingers crossed for me.  Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and thank you for popping by X
