Fashion ........

Today's Project.......
Took quite a few days to complete but I enjoyed learning what mediums re-acted to each other.
I wanted the project to represent France and this gave me the inspiration to use 
the colours of their flag...Red, White and Blue.

The background has been sprayed with several shades of Blues and Reds 
and some with Mica in them.
After masking the 'spotlights' I lightly brushed with Gesso, stamped with text 
and different sizes of butterflies in both blue and white.
The hearts on the left have been stamped, masked and heat embossed.
The Red hearts have been fussy cut, blended with red inks and hi-lighted with Glossy Accents.
The models have been stamped and hi-lighted with white gesso (several times) and a black pen.
I have used enamel powder with glitter on the top and bottom of the project.
The photo never does this justice as its so textural, bright, grungy and yet sparkly all at the same time.
So very messy to use and so worth it.
The 'Fashion' letters have been stamped, heat embossed, cut and layered up onto foam.
France...Paris...Fashion
Learnt lots with this project and had lots of fun along the way

This is really cool! I don't have all these different types of media yet. I'm just starting to buy some copics. I can't wait until I can play with all of these types of media. Hugz

What an amazing "experiment". I love how everything stays within your theme (I'm a theme-y kinda gal) You should definitely hook up at Craft Stamper TIMI challenge since you used text. I think they'd love this.
