This is a close up of the acetate bit. There are bits of gold leaf behind the acetate me thinks !!!

Isn't it just fabulous. Made my day when it arrived this morning.
All I did was leave a message on her blog saying how it would look great in my cabin !!!!!! And believe me it does !
Thanks a bunch Sam.

Happy Birthday Katie.....

Hope she doesn't read this !!!!

I painted a 12x10 canvas with terracotta acrylic paint. The pattern is a stencil (which I found whilst rummaging!) and painted with viva precious metal copper paint.
Then I went to town (not literally!). I made a mini version of my artsy craft weekend project. I used some metal which was cuttle bugged. The middle one on the bottom row is sticky backed metal placed over die cut letters, a butterfly and a flower. The other three tiles were done with viva terra. I can't remember the colours used!!!! I did write it all down but lost the bit of paper.......
I think I may do myself one with silver metal! As you can tell Burn likes doing these!!!!!
Actually, doing this post has just reminded me - I must phone Katie and make an appointment to have my hair cut !!
Thanks for stopping by.

It's only me!!!!

Hello peeps. I have been told off by three/four peeps for not blogging. Well here I am. I have been a busy bee.

First of all I made a little canvas thingy for a friend at my sign language class. Here is the metal rose. I just lurve this rose. I can't stop making them !!!! This one was done with silver metal and royal purple stazon ink.
I also did a bird cage. I like making this too. Again it's royal purple stazon with mother of pearl viva precious metal paint, kaiser antique white and dusky pink paint (all this done on the reverse)
Here is the finish article. The canvas was painted with dusky rose paint and stamped with a paperartsy swirl (loving this stamp at the moment) with stazon (royal purple). The middle is a piece of grey board covered with communal garden tin foil, glued on to the grey board and then put through the cuttlebug and dabbed with various colours of stazon - a la Sue Roddis. The edge of the canvas has viva precious metal paint in silver red and blackberry.
There yer go !
As I said I have been creating like a looney just lately so tomorrow I will post another project!
thanks for stopping by.
Love Burnice x
