Flying High

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Quite a bit of DT work to do  this week, so going to be very busy.  I hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoying your day so far.

Today I am showcasing a Canvas I made a few weeks ago.  I so enjoyed making this and hope you like it too.


12 x 12 Canvas which has been prepared first with mixture of Pebeo white Gesso and Artiste Acrylic Paint, Pearl Medium.
Using PanPastels UK in the following colours I dusted the colours randomly around the canvas: Hansa Yellow, Hansa Yellow Shade, Bright Yellow Green Tint and Dairylide Yellow.




I then stamped swirls from Creative Expressions Mini Swirl stamp set in Stampin up Celery Green.
The bird cage stencil has been drawn around with PanPastel UK in Orange.  When applying the Pebeo Modelling paste I didn’t smooth is across as I wanted to created dimension.  Once dry I then dusted over with bird with Dairylide Yellow and the birdcage in Phthalo Green.
Using Prima Botanical Collection Paper I cut out 2 dies from the Spellbinder Shapeability D-Lites Fantastic Flourish One, sprayed them with Crafter’s Companion Spray and Sparkle in Gold. 
The wooden embellishments are from Hobbycutz and attached to 3 of the corners.





The humming birds are stamps from Kanban which I have stamped and embossed using WOW Embossing Powder Metallic Silver Sparkle.  I painted the birds using Cosmic Shimmer Watercolour paints in gold and green.
I have added a bouquet spray along the left hand side along with leaves and beaded stems, and then to finish off I have stamped the sentiment from Sheena Douglass’ A little Bit sketchy range.  Cut out using Spellbinder Decorative Labels Twenty-Two and then dusted PanPastel Yellow and Hansa Yellow. 



Thank you for stopping by Today
