Come Fly with Me...

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you all?  Case to pack again today as off to Sudbury again first thing tomorrow morning.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and get some crafting done.

A canvas today which is my first using bitumen and white spirits.


The first step was to stencil using, the honeycomb and leaves with modelling paste.
I then arranged the different laces, and embellishments to add dimension and texture.
I then painted the leaves, flowers, dragonfly, butterfly, bird and laces with iridescent acrylic paint.
Once this was dry added a layer of tarmac left this for a couple of hours.
Using white spirit and a cloth removed the excess tar.
To finish off I then dry brushed with copper around the frame and touched up the flowers, bird and dragonfly.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Altered Eclectics - Anything Goes Mixed Media
We Love 2 Create #22 - Anything Creative/Mixed Media
That Craft Place - Anything Goes Mixed Media

Many thanks for stopping by Today
