Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers, to your mothers, and any fur moms! Hope your day is beautiful and you are spoiled. I certainly was spoiled this morning! Mimosas, pancakes and a mani/pedi! It is a treat for sure! It was a busy week but I did manage to sneak in some creating time. My project is a re-creation (one I created with other materials in the past) since I sold the original at an art weekend event. I had photos so I made an exact duplicate for ME! I loved this necklace so much.
I used the Haute Mess Acrylic colors: Make it Rain, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Guilt Trip, and First Crush for the canvas part of the necklace. I mixed the paints with water to thin them out and blend them better on the canvas fabric. ** I’m so sorry to say that I didn’t take process photos (I really got into my limited creating time and my fingers were quite messy!)… I started by brushing the watered down First Crush onto areas of the canvas. Then, blended Guilt Trip over areas. I mixed Drop Dead Gorgeous with Make it Rain to create some blue greenish hues by overlapping areas. Also, I left some areas more transparent with more water.
I stamped with a permanent ink and used some silver texture paste I had through a stencil to create the circles. Once dry, I added the buttons, brads and gems. I used fabric glue to add the ribbon and velveteen backing to finish this piece. A tip… cut both the canvas and backing at the same time so that they match seamlessly.
I will be wearing this piece to an art opening reception soon! It’s a statement piece for sure! I hope you will get a bit of creating time for yourself. Happy Mother’s Day to you all and Happy Sunday!
