"Whimsical Wings"

Hey there everyone, I am back with a project I created just for the fun of it! 
Have no idea what to call it so it is just a winged thing!
So here is the project, so so much fun to do!

The base is a timber board that I coated with a layer of white Gesso, then added a layer of cheap joint medium to create a background with dimension replicating an old wall.

I also added a layer of crackle paste, trying to add a peeling paint look to that wall!

 I collected loads of stuff from my stash including an antique door plate that was a good fit as a "body" and a doll, that I ripped the head off......(strangely satisfying!).

I used shells, Scrap FX chipboard coral and wings, watch parts, art stones, micro beads and beads to make up my whimsical creature.

The doll only had a little bit of hair so I added shredded paper to the background to give her more flowing locks!

I glued everything down with heavy gel medium and the joint medium was a great filler behind the  door plate and makes a great glue to the base!

 Once all was dry, the real fun began....adding tons of colour!

 This is when all those wonderful cracks and texture come to the fore!

Gold paint embossing powders & pigment powders all add to the effect.

Well, that was a whole heap of messy fun, I hope you like her and a name would be great! So, if anyone can think of one feel free!
Till next time!



Thanks so much for taking the time to let me know you were here!
