Seize the Day

At the PapeArtsy blog the challenges have been so inspiring as they dip into other mediums, techniques or concepts.  The current challenge is fabric and I was looking at how the fabric added dimension to the different art including the beautiful flowers cut out and sewed into three dimensional flowers or the fabulous moths constructed from fabric.


This had me thinking out using die cuts with fabric. I created a journal page using stars cut from fabric, sprayed with gold mist and coated in mica flakes. 

 I masked a portion of the page with a large circle and then sprayed with glimmer mists in different directions spinning the page with the mask around to get the same angle of the spray in each direction. I repeated this with blue, brown and purple mists.  After that was finished I added splattering of white paint to bring back some lighter highlights. I let that dry and pulled up my circle mask and stamped the sentiment and the bird in the moon. 

I then added a hint of shadowing around the bird.  I then cut my stars and misted them. After they dried I used glue and dipped them in the mica flakes. I then attached them to the background. I also added mica flakes sprinkled in over the background as well.

The stamps are Impression Obsession (Sentiment) and the bird is Paper Artsy.   The mists are from Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

Have a lovely Sunday!
