Thanks for looking. An image by Alphonse Mucha. The metal at the upper left is from Quick Silver. I put some rhinestones and lumiere paint on, dimensional magic. Also from the same person is the blue gem at the upper right. I put it on a brad and put some seed beads around it. Also the clear diamond shaped bling around the edges. Thanks for the materials!
I want to thank Jan Hobbs . Her blog describes melting utee by heating from underneath the paper. The crystals dont blow around . It does take a real long time though.
This is watercolor ppr. I sprayed it with water . While wet i sprayed with dylusions.At the end i painted with ultramarine acrylic paint, with dimensional magic on top of it. The whole thing was shiny till the acrylic took the shine off.
The round cardboard is gesso, acrylic paint, then utee and lumiere paints. Both the bg and round part took a long time, theres lots of layers. I spent way too much time trying to figure out stuff to put on this,embellies. The bg is busy so i had to keep it small.
The bg also has some alcohol ink on it.Silver embossing powder on edges of bg ppr.
You can get this and other paintings by Mucha by going to free Alphonse Mucha clip art.
The wings have utee on them also, and when i heated it the acrylic paint under the silver pigment ink bubbled up. Im not sure if silver alone would bubble. I know Renea heats puffy paint and it comes out great. I thought it looked pretty neat here. Also you can see 2 diamond shaped things on the wings. Thats from some bling trim that Quick Silver was nice enough to send me.
I called this The Moon because that's the name Alphonse Mucha gave to his painting.
silver pigment ink on Tim Holtz wings on either side of the round cardboard. Vintaj owl at upper right of page. Blue satin behind cardboard.Stickpin at lower right of image is swarovskis and a moonstone. Metal wing is Tim Holtz, and so are the alphas.
