I started by painting a canvas using Eco Friendly acrylic paint in Grape. I used the black side of some Cut N Dry foam to give a textured finish.
When this was dry I roughly drew some circles using a Zig glue pen and applied some gilding flakes to add some shine, and created some drips using silver ink.
I wanted to capture the feel of Autumn, so with some craft metal I die cut some acorn leaves, shaped them around a pen and glued them to the canvas.
Now for some sparkle, I have a reel of madeira thread, it's called Jewel Holographic, really sparkly, tricky to capture the effect with a photograph!!
After some experimenting, I cut off a couple of metres, and wrapped them around 2 fingers and twisted together to create some circles.
We had some maintenance to our heating system recently, and they were using a soldering iron, a few drops fell onto the floor, so I rescued 2 blobs of solder. Nice and shiny, so I glued these onto the canvas.
Lastly for some more sparkle and shine I attached 5 glass crystal pendants to the side of the canvas with some craft wire.
Great fun, hope you enjoy...
