Something different

Hi Everyone 

As some of you may know I am a Disnerd.... Yes that right I am obsessed with Disney and all it represents. When I was asked to assist with an art show and painting at my daughters school of a Princess Ariel, I was happy to oblige. This painting though had a twist it was Ariel done in the Day of the Dead style.
I liked it so much that I bid on the painting and won it. So it now sits on my wall all beautiful and stylish. The of course the children wanted one too so I have done a much smaller version of Queen Elsa for my youngest daughter.

I started this project by choosing a canvas a little bigger than an A4. I then painted it white in readiness for some Couture Creations goodness.

I borrowed a picture of my artwork offline and traced it onto my prepped canvas and outlined it using a Permanent marker 

I then mixed some Couture Creations Anna Griffin Pigment powders with water and painted Elsa's hair and masked face. LOVE THAT SHINE!!!
I then painted Elsa's unmasked side of her face and neck with watered down acrylic paint. 
All the while drying my creation with a Couture Creations Heat tool.

I then added some pigment powder to some Couture Creations Anna Griffin Texture paste and added some texture to the flowers in Elsa's hair coating in with glitter while its still wet. 

Then using the precision end of the Couture Creations Glitzin Glamour I added some glitter glue to the smaller blue flowers in Elsas Hair. then I coated it with blue glitter form the Couture Creations Anna Griffin fine Glitter Collection. 

I love the way this turned out and think that the shine from the pigment powders give it an extra dimension. Its just another way that Disney has filled my home. 
What a great gift for the Disnerd in your family.

Hi Everyone 

I have being playing with it again along with the Wild and Free Collection.

Sorry about the shadow on this pic but was the best one to show the colour.

I started this card by grabbing out a piece of Couture Creations Glitter Cardstock in white.
Then I mixed some Couture Creations Yellow Pigment Powder with some alcohol and brushed it onto the cardstock and let dry.

Then Cutting some scrap cardstock with the Couture Creations Wild and Free Love Birds Feather.

Then with a Couture Creations 2 Way Glue pen I added some glue to the back of my die cut and waited for it to dry so it would be repositionable.

then attach it directly over the yellow glitter cardstock.

Then I mixed some Green Pigment Powder with the Couture Creations Acrylic Gesso. Smoothing the mixture over the adhered feather.

then remove the die cut and reveal the yellow feather underneath. Add some pigment powders to the top of your gesso and shake off excess .. allow the to dry.

Then cut a feather from left over glitter card stock and using some alcohol and pigment powders colour over the glitter to create this gorgeous effect and let dry.

Once dry cut your creations to the size card you desire and arrange your feather and some real feathers, some trims etc and adhere into place

From the Wild and Free Sticker Sheet choose a round sticker and add to some cardstock. Cut the cardstock slightly bigger than your sticker. The cut an opposing colour surround from the sticker sheet and add to the circle sticker. 

Cut around the edges of the surround and mount at the head of your feather cluster.

add a rub on if desired. To finish off add some Couture Creations 2mm Gemstones in Powder Blue and Golden Touch.
