It's been a while since I have blogged, I took a little summer break ;)
I have created a mixed media piece with products from 7 Dots Studio, Dusty Attic , Lindy's Stamp Gang and Finnabair.
It is based on the Creative challenge at Mixed Media & Art 'Alter scrap 'bulb', and the September color challenge at Lindy's Stamp Gang.
I really love those rusty and earthy colors, mixed with some shades of green and blue. The car lights in the picture from Lindy's were also my inspiration for the lightbulb in my project. I used the quote 'live for today' to strengthen the word 'inspire'.
My project is about art.
How we create to inspire. Inspire myself to never give up, to live for today, but also to inspire others and hopefully let them feel uplifted and confident to live their life, follow their dreams...
I used the paper from Hazy Days 'Zip' in the frame, to give it that worn, rusty look. When it was glued down, I put a thin layer of clear crackle over it. When it all was dry and crackled, I brushed gold mica powder over it, so the crackles were more visible and shiny.
I painted the flowers with Lindy's Moon Shadow Mist spray Gossamer Gold. The wings and fabric tail are sprayed with Lindy's Starburst Tibetan Poppy Teal.
When they were dry I brushed some Finnabair wax 'Aged brass' and 'Lucky emerald' over it, some gold mica powder and ultra fine glitter. Then I started to glue the pieces on top of eachother, mixed with metal embellishments, creating a triangled composition.
I painted the lightbulb with golden sparkle paint 'Dragon's eye' at the backside, before glueing it down. This way it lights up very bright.
Thank you for visiting!
