Hi and welcome to my blog :) Today I'm sharing a piece of mixed media home decor that I have just created. I decided to design and create this piece to enter the Country View Challenges January challenge - Anything Goes. http://countryviewchallenges.blogspot.co.uk/ As you may know if you've visited my blog before - I love these Peacock stamps! I have used them for a lot of my projects but not for a while, so they were my first choice.
For this piece I have used stamps from the Peacock Parade and Tangled Peacock sets; Dyna Paints, black gesso, Versamark ink, clear embossing powder, gold glitter texture paste; Sissix and Intricut dies from my stash; a stencil and some gems from my stash.
I took a small canvass and painted it with black gesso. I then stamped a Peacock with Versamark ink and embossed it with clear powder. This is just a guide to centre the artwork. Next I stamped and embossed the Peacock and several large images on black card, painted them and cut them out.
I then applied some texture paste through a stencil to create a border around the Peacock, and left it to dry.
I then gathered my painted images and added to them by die cutting two sizes of feathers from black card. I painted each feather and added gems.
I used a recycled piece of packaging to create a mount for the canvass, painting it with Dyna paint. I peeled the top layer of card in each corner to add more texture.
I attached all the embellishments with dimensional glue to make them 3D.
As I've already said I LOVE my Peacock stamps! The Dyna paints are irredescent which really adds to the artwork and lifts the whole peace. The feather dies are a new addition to my stash, and I think this is a lovely way to christen them!
Thank you very much for visiting today, I hope that you've enjoyed this post and that you'll pop in again soon :)
