Topic 18 wearable art...

The topic this time is wearable art over on the paper artsy blog....and as usual some great stuff..pop over here and have a look...

I started a couple of pieces last week and although one was finished and one nearly finished..I just haven't had the time to blog. So here goes..not a long post as I have a stinking cold and my eyes keep blurring lol..sneezing etc..you know how it is...

I started out with a metal heart and painted it in snowflake.I stuck on some patterened tissue paper and when that was dry I added a wash of snowflake over the top then stamped some script in black archival.
.Next I added some metal embellishments and a little resin bird. When all the glue was dry I added  blues and greens Lindy's samp gang sprays. When they were dry I scraped on some bead gel in random places...you may be able to see it if you enlarge the piccie.

I dry brushed some snowflake over the embellishments and when that was dry I sprinkled on some blue bistres and sprayed with some watered down gum arabic.

Lastly a ring through the top and threaded some ribbon...finished!

Thanks for stopping by..........................................
