Just like my last mini canvases I covered these with fiber paste. This time I also sprinkled them with sparkly fine glitter while they were still wet and set painted dried grape stems on top.
My kids are so funny! Every time they finish up a bunch of grapes they smile big and ask, “You want these stems, Mom?”
Of course I do!
I also swirled a spot of blue paint, and I mean a tiny spot, into the wet paste to give it the softest hint of blue.
Then I sculpted a little blue bird from paper clay and painted it the same soft blue when it was dry. Then I glued it on so that it looks as if it’s perched on a snowy branch…
I added on words cut from book text and brushed some of the paste over the edges.
Here’s a winged heart about to take off in flight (or that’s the look I was going for anyway).
Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Creating things is a much needed outlet for me right now, but it’s even more enjoyable when people come to visit!
Up next…my daughter finally talked me into creating a Valentine’s tree. More to come!
