A Sprinkle of Imagination 12 Blogs of Christmas

I was very excited to be asked to take part in this years blog hop over at A Sprinkle of Imagination
They have some fabulous products in their shop including these gorgeous Relics and Artifacts from Prima, which I love!
I started my canvas by creating a textured background using mesh ribbon and smooth texture paste, once that was dry I gave it a coat of gesso and let that dry before stamping the Prima Doily with Versamark and embossing with clear powder. Then I added layers of inks and Perfect Pearls over the top of the whole canvas.  I spritzed the wings with a selection of inks and left them to dry before adding Sheffield Steel Megaflakes to highlight the feathers, and gluing the heart and wins to the canvas. Once that was dry I added pearls and gems for some sparkle, and spritzed again over the top with Perfect Pearls.
I've had the metal letters for ages and I love the look of the bare metal against the cool blues, so finally they have a home.
So there you have it, my new canvas which is actually on my workroom wall to remind me to spread my wings and fly a little!!

Just gorgeous - the gentle blues and greens are so pretty with the hint of shimmer, and I love the winged heart.
