So after a long absence I am finally back in action! My husband got a new job and we had to move to a new state. So for 6 months I was cleaning, packing and moving! Didn't get to do art for all that time and it certainly made me cranky! The good part is I have a whole room for my art in our new house but it has a long way to go with putting up shelves, etc. I have it set up so I can at least do some art in the meantime though!
This is my newest piece and I plan to hang it on the wall in my new room! I used a new medium that I saw Donna Downey use-joint compound!!!! I love it, you can buy it at WalMart! Similar in use to modeling paste but it takes a little longer to dry. It also gives a different texture than modeling paste and is really easy to spread on with a spatula. I used it with a stencil on the corners and love the texture it gave this piece! The beads on the butterfly's wings are white seed beads. I put clear glaze in the spots I wanted the beads in and then poured them (carefully) on and let it sit over night to dry. Feels sooooo good to make art again!
