NEW BLOG CHALLENGE


Hello everyone  today the Crafty-Emblies  'ANYTHING GOES' challenge blog has gone live .... Crafty-Emblies now has 2 groups ... one for Altered art projects and one for papercraft/card making ...... so now EVERYONE can join in the fun and hopefully win some of there amazing products .... New items are being added all the time ...

So here is what I made ...


I started by covering my canvas with artist modeling paste then scraped a  random pattern in it ...
I then sprayed it with Dylusions Ink while it was still wet with 'Cherry Pie' , 'Funky Fuschia',
and 'London Blue' ... I dabbed parts of it then added some fiber to it that looks like a spider web (sorry don't know what its called )  left it to dry ...
once dried I then added more inks to get a darker colour.

I added the printed image of the woman in the bottom left corner using Mod Podge and glued some chain around the the picture ... I then reprinted the image of the woman much larger and fussy cut it out
 .. 
the wings behind her are from Crafty-Emblies and come joined together so I simply cut them in the centre and then added Gold rub and buff onto them, I also glued 2 lengths of chain across her skirt ....

I added another printed image of the heart with the cogs inside it and added Crafty-Emblies clock hands  to it after I had embossed them with Black embossing powder ..
I glued more chain right around the edge of the canvas and stranded  2 long lengths of chain across which is loose and can move (like the chain across the womans skirt) 


I embossed more of Crafty-Emblies cogs with gold embossing powder and some heart shape buttons from my stash and added them to the canvas  along with the words of love and the sentiment from a Tim Holtz stamp to finish it all I sprayed it with a Mica pearl spray I made myself ...
I also embossed crafty-emblies love birds with gold, dark red and black and decided they may look good dangling underneath ,,, 

I am soooo happy with how it has turned out  ... I hope some of you like it too 

Thank you so much for stopping by and I look forward to reading any comments you leave
