She flies.....

 Hello friends
Hope you are all good!
Sorry I've not been around much at the mo, as its the summer holidays and I'm trying to cram in as much as I can with my family and friends,,,,
but I've managed to pop back in to share a quickie make I created.....
I've been catching up on creative chemistry 103 
and I've been so inspired to crack open all things inky!
(if you want to know more about creative chemistry 103, its not too late.....pop over here for the details, its full of  great techniques with tons of  fabulous inspiration)

So I got myself busy with pots of gesso, Tim Holtz texture paste and grit paste 
some stencils, distress paints/sprays and distress crayons
I created lots of texture using grit paste, gesso and texture paste, when it had dried I coloured using distress crayons and distress paints
I stamped out Papillon butterflies (Tim Holtz) and framed them with some rusty wire 
The number band is a vintage key fob ( one of my vintage finds) 
To attach the butterflies I sewed them in place with my sewing machine 
 I used Mixed media 2 stamp set in random areas and highlighted the stamping with a white gel pen
and I touched up the grit paste using distress crayons ( I just love the effect you get with them)
To finish I added the words from Idea-ology small talk
and sewed the edges of the black card.

As always feel free to leave a comment, I really appreciate reading each and every one!
Wishing you a happy week
Enjoy the summer
hope to be back soon
