Hello creative friends! Today I, Inna Brigantina, share my inspiration with you. Maybe the summer colours or, our beautiful papers and flowers that inspired me! But I wanted something bright and enchanting.
To begin with, I prepared the materials that I required. I decided to make a decorative panel in the form of butterfly wings .
I decided the colour palette. Some of the elements needed to be painted in the selected colours.
I also painted the flowers. I achieved the desired shades by mixing Little Birdie Color Splash sprays.
After all the elements were prepared and dry, I proceeded to my most favorite part of creativity – the assembly of the composition.
My Butterfly queen is ready. (It decorated my workshop and dream of summer with it’s bright colors).
Hi Little Birdie lovers, I created an iron butterfly with so many gorgeous flowers, little butterflies and small fairies.
I started by painting the butterfly with white gesso for a good basic ground. Then I used the Grainy Texture Paste to get some more texture on the butterfly. I used the lavender chalk paint, put a bit on the inside of the butterfly and sprayed water so it flows down the wings, leaving a soft lavender color.
Then I started my composition by adding the gorgeous flowers from the ‘Fairy Sparkle’ collection. I used 3 wooden straws and kept adding flowers, some white sisal and fairy embellishments. I glued it all with the heavy body gel. Don’t you just love these cute fairies and butterflies …
I used some chipboard elements to create some depth and for some extra eye-candy… I placed the lovely fairy on a frame to let her be the central point. I painted glass beads with the chalk paint Rose Blush, so they sparkle in there like little rose bubbles.
I hope you like my Fairy Butterfly and get inspired by it. Please let me know what you think about my project. Hope you are all staying at home and being creative. Till next time!
