Olympic Mobile....

Today's project was inspired by The Male Room challenge - Olympics/Sports
I'll show you the photos first......
I have made an Olympic Masculine Mobile....
A Dream Catcher.....
I have used gold, silver and gold along with the Olympic colour rings.
I have paired up the Male sports with the colour of the medal that some of the 
UK Olympians have won.
Silver in Swimming and Canoeing, Bronze in the all round gymnastics.....
Gold in Rowing and Cycling.....
I have used stencils in a round (medal) theme throughout onto the vellum using 
gel and glitter in gold, silver or bronze.
I have die cut the feathers using the five colours of the Olympic rings.
I over stamped them with a feather stamp using co-ordinating colours of starlight paints.
Wow these paints are sparkly. 
The tips of the feathers have been further embellished with glitter and gel in gold, silver or bronze.
The coloured Olympic circles have been die cut and the centers from vellum.
The vellum has given a really lovely silhouette effect.
The underneath has been done with a circle stencil and gold, silver and bronze gel glitter.
I attached the feathers using wire to continue the masculine theme.
The green leaves have been die cut and attached around the circle to represent the Olive Wreaths.
I had fun making the mobile and my DREAM catcher.
Sorry about the photo over load but it was really hard to photo.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
