Well where has this week gone. I am so sorry I haven't been here this week and a huge thank you to Patricia for contacting me to see if I was ok bless her. I have been super busy with my teams and needing to get a little in front with some artwork for Heartfelt Creations but Then I had some sad news that a friend from my old job days had passed away so I didn't get some of the posts I wanted to up on the blog so sorry about that folks but I have been creating again today and again I had another frame to alter this week for Creative Expressions.
It started life looking like this.
And finished Up looking like
What do You think?
I used The butterfly Collage set from my recent show on Create and craft to stamp out the butterfly onto some more paper with Rusty hinge ink. I also used the sentiment for the bottom right of the frame , which I inked ever so slightly around the edges to soften the brightness of the card. I added a silk ribbon flower to two opposite corners and the butterflies I added double sided adhesive and micro beads for some texture and added the first into the aperture and then the second I adhered with a glue dot in the centre only so the wings could remain dimensional.
I added a couple of large pearls to the top of the frame and 6 of the metal corners also from my show as they bend very easily so I added them with a glue dot ad simply bent the corner over to grip the central crossed panel, I the added more gilding wax to each one and I think it came out really nice.
The micro beaded Butterfly and close up of the paper etc.
Excuse my hand but I wanted to add this to the cream wall to show how well it matched in with a neutral backing.
I wanted to let everyone know they should have their cards and the prize winning by now so enjoy everyone.
Hugs to all.
