It was a tough weekend.
My youngest sister passed away a year ago
I wanted to DO something, anything, that would honor
I decided to create an art piece using a piece of her jewelry as a focal
She loved all things vintage, especially art deco, so I started out with this:
a piece of 3 3/4 x 5 inch plastic and a 5 x 7 canvas.
I transformed the plastic into this:
using alcohol inks, crackle medium and distress inks.
I then applied it to the canvas and built up the layers with
molding paste, acrylic paints, glaze and embellishments. The
flower was die cut from fabric paper I made using Beryl Taylor's
I love how it turned out and she would have, too.
