Don't Forget To Fly

Welcome today I have a little book for you decorated using my Butterfly stamp from AALLandCreate. You can find the stamp HERE.
I recently had a play day at my lovely friend Anne Redfern's house along with Rita and Annie and it was an absolutely fantastic day to just spend time with like-minded creatives. I started the covers of this book at Anne's house and then continued with the process once I arrived home. Eileen Hull's Passport Book is one of my favourite dies and has so many possibilites when combined with different mediums.
I painted my covers and also incorporated lots of texture to create a wonderfully tactile piece.
I also incorporated added texture, applying Texture Paste over Autour de Mwa's stencil #28 Broken Circle which you can find HERE.
I stamped my butterfly image onto music paper and then applied Seth Apter's Baked Texture Vintage Beeswax over the wings, adding several layers for added texture. I also applied some delicate touches of gold with Pebeo Wax.
I also incorporated an ATC Coin to give further dimension along with some rusty tin wire and some jump rings added randomly to the background. The focal piece is backed onto a piece of torn music paper.

The products used in ths piece are shown below:

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Tracy, this is stunning! Your colour choices are fabulous and I adore Ab's broken circle stencil, it adds some beautiful texture, as does the coin! And then your butterfly - she looks so beautiful with the little wire rings... and the Baked Textures.

That was such a wonderful day of crafting, hope we can do it again some time. Hugs, Anne xx
