My Dh and I. Well, i dont know how to express what a pain in the neck this was at times. I put the cardboard thing on behind the photo and it was kind of downhill from there! The cardboard looked great till i put on some pink mica powder and , the color was awful. Gosh i was upset with it cuz i really really liked the verdigris green embossing powder, copper and gold, with lots of the original cardboard showing through. I brushed some pink off and put lumiere paints on , more powders and continued in that vein of thought. I need something here, but what? Nice flowers i thought, but mine are limited and making them is too hard for me, i dont have the patience. I really like metal embellies , fussy cutting, bling. The ppr is something i love here, and wanted to bring out the gorgeous butterfly. the bg on the left is gel medium, embossing pwdr in gold , verdigris , copper, silver glitter, all mixed up then spread on the page. After it dried i put diff. colors of lumiere on with my hands , in small amounts, to bring out the textures. Then rock candy on top. The black vertical lines on the left are peacock feathers. I used several items of jewelry my sis gave me.The green cameo, a gold chain on the left edge there. A big cats eye at the middle left. Theres some pale clear light yellow beads that might be citrine. I used some molding paste on the bottom, using a jolees wedding sticker as a stencil.
The fern leaf by the cameo is baked sculpy clay , i used a ms mold thingy.
In the upper right is also a labrodorite, from my beading days. In the lower right under the title is a broken earring, its peridot and moonstone. I used to wear them a lot till one broke. Earlier i said cats eye but its tiger eye, the bead by the lower dove on the left edge. I cut it off a necklace of them that my sis gave me to use in projects.
