Collage on canvas....

Found a scrap of fabric & this is how it ended up! Strange how my mind!
First covered the canvas(5 x 7in) in beige/brown acrylic then added gesso & red acrylic through some sequin waste, added the fabric which I frayed round the edges. Used some of the resulting fibres down the right edge, added beads & some odd bits of utee & finally the butterfly, which is made of card, heat embossed in gold, feathers etc added & voila!!

Bird Cage...

Its totally mad but I had fun making this bird cage! The idea came from an article in the Craft Stamper mag, I used an empty tape reel for the base, covered it with dry embossed mirri card then used wire for the bars and decorated them with gold elastic, beads and sequins.Made the bird from a scrap of board and some feathers.


Some more altered dominoes...............
