My DT piece for Creative Expressions this week features flowers and butterflies again, but in a more grungy style!
paint, then added my colour. Not too much colour, this is a much more muted scheme from me today! I used yellow and grey paint, and just scraped it on with a palette knife. once that was dry, I added a little black stamping. Not too much, you can maybe spot the plaid stamp, and a teeny bit of the petals from an Aster! I added my flower and butterfly (from the silhouette plate) to the panel. I did this by stamping onto tissue, then adhering with Glue N Seal. I've been playing about with collage mediums this week, just to see how they compare 'invisibility wise' ! Which ones make the tissue look the most invisible! I'll be sharing the results of my experiment next week, so check back!
Once the tissue was all dry, I added a nice thick coat of Rock Candy Crackle paint. Whilst it was still wet, I sprinkled on some grey glitter to the edges. It sticks well to the wet medium, with no need for additional glue! Once dry, the crackles gave the whole thing a nice textured grungy feel..
love Trish xx
