There is a new challenge at 7 Dots Studio, it is called 'metallic colors or texture'.
I hope you'll join us!
Metallic colors are my favorite...I love everything shiny, shimmering and that's why I have so many gorgeous shimmering paints and inks. It was not hard at all to use the elements from this theme in my project!
I used gold as my metallic color and the circle shaped metal trinket behind my butterfly, has lots of texture, created with glass glitter, glass beads and rhinestones.
The frame has also texture, because I painted it with golden and graphite acrylic paint, used some tissue paper, painted it again, and when this all was dry, I covered the whole frame with lace.
About my project: I wanted to create something different with the papers from 7 Dots Studio, than a layout, or card or tag.
I die cutted a doily out of a paper from the Homegrown collection ( paper 12 x 12 'Dreamy'). The doily is glued down on the back of the frame (in the middle) and it has a see-through effect this way.
I stamped my butterflies on paper from Homegrown 6 x 6 paper pad. I used embossing powder on my darker butterfly, and my golden butterfly is stamped with acrylic paint.
Because I felt my angelic butterfly had turned out very mysterious, I was searching for a title that really fitted my project.
I found the title on a word sticker from the Lost and Found collection.... Just a whisper....Mysterious and magical...like my shimmering butterfly. She whispers soft when she flies nearby....
And here is the inspirational circle, I hope you'll be inspired to play along this month!
Thank you for visiting!
