I am making my debut today on the Molossi blog with this project:
This is a small 6x6 inch canvas. I gave it a coat of paint to match that wonderful door on the Mood Board. I also liked how the details were painted the same color as the door. I painted the Dusty Attic Swirly Vines to match the canvas. Next I stenciled the alphabet onto the canvas with Viva 3D Stamp-Paint.
The tag on my canvas was made using the Graphic 45 Typography collection. The edges of the papers were colored with Distress Inks in Black Soot and Tumbled Glass, and each layer was mounted with plenty of room in between to tuck in the feathers and other pieces of chipboard. The butterflies are Dusty Attic Flutterbies. I painted them different colors and gave them different finishing treatments to set them off. Some of the detail work of the butterflies was done with Kaisercraft paint in black. The green butterfly was given a coat of Viva Glitter Paste for some sparkle. The red butterfly's edges were rubbed with Viva Inka-Gold in gold. I also accented some other areas of the canvas with the gold.
The second vine chipboard, ribbon, fiber, metal bits and vacuum tube were added to the tag. On the bottom of the canvas I added the quote "Creativity takes courage," by Henri Matisse. Go be brave and creative!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
