An opening piece.....

Hello and welcome to my first Artful Days blog post. 

My other blog is Redfish Designs but I will mostly be using this blog now!

So as some of you may know I run a small craft website as well as juggling a full time job, 2 dogs, 1 cat (for now, poor thing is on his last legs ) a house and a Elliott (the OH).

When I do get time to play I lose myself in the moment and mess heehee!

Having a free play day, today I decided to immerse myself in my new Prima goodies (the first wave have just landed!)

I wanted to work on a Finnabair inspired piece as I have just booked my very first workshop with her, woohoo.

Using one of my fave photos of Kayla (furbaby) and some of the yummy products pictured below I got started....

I was so completely in the moment I forgot to take any photo's of the process so I shall explain.
First I used a 8 x 10 canvass board and covered it in clear paste using the Honeycomb Stencil, whilst it was still wet I added Micro beads in copper and let it dry.
Taking all the materials I had out, I put together the topper, I used some of my own metal embellishments to slide in between all the layers,
Once my canvas was dry I used Dylusions sprays to cover some of background, and stamped with Messy and Bubbles Finnabair's new stamps.
More layers went on the canvas and then the topper and lace. I finished off with the spatters of Dylusions link and added aTim Holtz word die, Beautiful....
