Life - DT Sarah-Jane

Hi Everyone, well it's Monday so you all know what that means............

Mixed Media Monday Time!

This week I had a specific plan for what I was trying to achieve, but as usual it didn't turn out the way I had planned. After completing the background I was not overly happy with how it had turned out, it wasn't until I added a few more things that I ended up being happy with my work.

So here it is:


I cut lots of little butterflies using a Tim Holtz Die and glued them to the page before putting a layer of gesso over the top the hide the writing underneath. I then put a layer of Sky Blue paint over the top and layered that with Twinkling H2O's in Sunflower. It gave the background a green look to it and then I decided that it needed bright colours so I went hunting in my stash for something to make it brighter. 

Here are a few close up pictures:
