Here is my effort for this months UK Art Raffle. The theme is take flight. I decided to alter a slide mailer, as I have only ever done one before (Nicks was the unfortunate recipient!)
I used Tim Holtz crackle paint for the base colour, which I then rubbed over with metallic acrylics.
The front cover I stamped with "wish to fly" and then utee'd. then added some of my favourite german scrap wings. The inside I stamped and embossed some scrolls and then added a brass heart. The slide has a transparency with moths (yuck!) and butterflies trapped inside and edged with aluminium tape.
The back cover I have added a paperartsy stamped image. The dangly bit is an old ear-ring and then wrapped some fibres around the spine.
I hope that it is good enough!
