Antique Bronze Sparkle Medium to create this canvas. Iv'e also used Gilding Flakes to add to the background to give the canvas more interest.
First paint your canvas light brown . When dry, stick the stencil to the canvas with masking tape and and spread Antique Gold Medium through the stencil. Lift off the stencil carefully and whilst the medium is still wet, add Gilding Flakes to the edges - Don't brush the flakes off yet - leave to dry. Once dry brush off the flakes and they be incorporated into the Sparkle Medium.
I then added a pebble for the bee's body, coloured it with permanent markers and added 3D foam circles for the head.
I added some wings I took off a net butterfly and re-shaped, then added antennae made from wire and adhesive gems. The Flowers were made with tissue paper which I added after inking the edges of the canvas to give depth to the picture. The leaves were hand-drawn, cut out and added along with some green die-cut swirls. To finish I added a butterfly and some embossed flowers to the edges. Back soon with more creations for you.
