This was inspired by Lindys stamp gang sprays. I don't have them, but Ide like to . Its neat how when you spray , 2 colors show up. I thought ide try and catch that . The dragonflies are molding paste. I painted them gold and outlined them with gel pens. Then I painted with lumieres, silk acrylics, and I mixed mica powders with water. The gold works really well. I experimented with mixing patina paints ,lumiers, and water. That what I used on a lot of the outside edges.
From Quick Silver I got the lady bug in the upper left corner,the butterfly with gems hanging from the pink flower at the middle top, the square clear bling on the upper right, and the small white mother of pearl piece at the lower left. From 48FiveTime I got the big diamond shaped bling at the upper right,and the Zva pearl flourish. I attached it to a dragonfly under the photo. The gold butterfly at the upper right is 2 inches off the page on a coiled wire . I tried to use the pearl flourish on that but it didn't work. Thank you friends for your items.
The dragonfly at the upper left is from a bottle of Giovanni pinot grigio I bought in Door County,Wisconsin when I was on vacation. Just now I looked it up to make sure I had the brand right. I found a reference to a wine blog,which was so entertaining and funny. I had to stop, theres only so many hours in the day to read stuff online. I was in Door County 2003 about.
Theres an earring at the upper right,it has pink and green rhinestones.I don't wear them anymore.
I also used twinkle H20 watercolors around the borders, and also on the Dusty attic. I used a lot of stuff on that, seeing which I liked most. Lumieres, metallic paint, mica powder,all in layers, again going for a watercolor effect.
Thanks for reading all this, and if youde like to make a comment, ide love to read it . They mean a lot to me.
The big pink flower at the top is Jolee's.
I did some stamping using lumieres in different colors. I want to give Reneabouquet a shout out for the stamping with acrylic with bling added. I don't think ive done that before. Before coming here I did stamp with acrylics on cards, a lot of times ide pour hologram glitter onto it, on a dark bg.
