Challenge 26 - Creative Artiste DT post

Hello Crafty Friends and Followers
It is that time again ...
Challenge 26 for

Our Awesome sponsor this month is

The Girls at Lindy's Gang have kindly donated a 
Gift Voucher for this month.

"Set Yourself Free" 

This month seeing that Lindy's are our sponsor I thought 
I would make a Canvas and pull out my favourite spray mists. 

I used a couple of stencils and once they were dry started 
to add colour via the LSG mists, then dried them off and they
were too dark for the look I was after so I made a mix of gesso and 
water to tone it down, until I was happy with the shades.

I used a couple of background stamps and give it another 
layer and smudged the bottom part of the stamp in the the
bottom lefthand corner and added some Champagne Mist to give
smudged shimmer look. 

I found some fabric wings and a chipboard mannequin in my stash, 
I covered both with thick white gesso and once they finally dried I covered the wings with the Lumiere - Pearlescent Magenta. They needed toning down as they were to vivid so out come the gesso again to tone that quite a bit down.
I added tiny amounts of pink to the mannequin, I also added quite a bit of Champagne mist onto some bubble wrap and dabbed it where I wanted it. I then dried it with the heat gun so it bubbled. 

 I punched some small Butterflies out of vellum and sprayed some LSG and dried with my heat gun and it made them curled.

Adding flowers in the bottom right corner to finish was all that was required
to achieve balance...
