Twilight Fairy

Greetings to you all!
(This is a post that I thought I had scheduled to go out several days ago! Oops, the joys of a foggy mind!)
I hope you are well, and that the weather where you are is better than the grey rainy cold here!
I'm working on something each day as I have given up procrastination for lent! I will try to post most of my work here, beginning with this from Day 1:

Twilight Fairy is a mixed media canvas.

I covered gesso primed canvas with a purple acrylic paint as a base coat and then once it was dry, covered over most of it lightly with a copper metallic paint (all paints used are acrylic).

Once dry, I stamped creeping ivy and vine leaves around the edges of the canvas (again using the copper metallic and a purple metallic paint).  All stamps used are from Lavinia Stamps.

On the canvas, paper flowers and a moulded fern were arranged and glued in place

They were then painted to match the background.  Dried flowers were added, along with the main image-a topper from Lelli-Bots Crafts.  A touch of iridescent glitter and some gold gilding wax added completed this piece.
I hope you like it, as I really enjoyed creating it.  Let me know what you think.
I'm off to blog some of the other items and schedule posting for them, before getting out my ink and making something else!
Thank you for stopping by, until next time-Happy crafting xx
