Best Friends

Morning and I have two DT posts today-the first one is for the ATG/Magic/Fantasy challenge at 613 Avenue Create-the twist was suggested by Sheryl.I used a small canvas covered in kitchen roll and painted with Aztec Lustre craft paints.I stuck ice lolly sticks to resemble a breakwater-coloured them with oxides and added glossy accent droplets/pre-coloured image from Hobby house with added glossy accents,sentiment from Crafters Companion,dies from Creative Dies and Elizabeth Craft Designs,dewdrops from stash.

Donna Ellis said...

another WOW from me today, Carol! The textures and design elements are amazing in spotlighting this adorable creature. I would never have put these elements together because of my lack of imagination. You've made it a woodsy, nature-laden, water-filled masterpiece of fantastic love and wonder! Thanks for the inspiration! xx

MaryH said...

Another, totally different look, equally as gorgeous as the earlier regal elegance one of the newer post. I am really liking the texture you've created with the paper toweling. And what super coloration you've gone on this too. I like the idea of the popsickle sticks used like you did, and of course the jewels and delightful image! This looks like you had a lot of fun making and did it ever turn out splendidly too! TFS & Hugs

I have been away for a couple of weeks and am playing catch-up this evening. It has given me the opportunity to study several of your creations in succession, you are so very talented and this is amazing. You canvass is incredible and the little mermaid is stunning, your colouring looks fabulous.

Hi Carol! I hope you're well. Thanks so much for dropping by my blog the other day, sorry I don't drop in as often as I should, my life has been so crazy busy this year. I think this has to be one of my favourite mermaid images, she's so adorable and I love how you've coloured her and her little friend. Wow to how you've created the canvas background with ice lolly sticks (we call them icy pole sticks in Oz). Thanks so much for joining in the Polkadoodles challenge, good luck in the prize draw, XOX Lucy
