Gold leaf and fresco flakes.

I have been playing today! I added gold leaf to my angel and fresco flakes to my friendship seeds. Fresco flakes are from Stewart Gill and are like flakes of peeling paint. i really am ready to beeswax them both now.

Angel and friendship seeds update

Ok I have been working on the layers on my Angel and Friendship seeds for the Suziblu workshop. It has been hard for me not to be so precise!! and to take time and walk away between layers, I think its called learning patience, lol! Anyway this where I am at with them, can't wait to add the finishing touches.

Schools back!

Yep the boys finally went back to school today! So maybe I can catch up with all my art projects now! I am so consumed with the Suziblu workshop at the moment I haven't got much else done! I have a few atcs for people I need to do and some christmas chunky pages to do. I got a new piece for the workshop started today and this time I will try to follow the steps and not rush ahead lol. I am really pleased with how the shading of the face came out, I wont show you a pic yet though, I will wait until she is a bit more developed.

Made my own stencil!

For the suziblu workshop we had to use stencils to embelish the background. I didn't have any so made my own! I was really pleased with how the stencil turned out and here is the finished piece with the stencils used on it!
