....gave her WINGS!

Hi Peeps! 
I am honored to bring this post to you!
My friend, Candy Rosenberg, posted she was releasing
 FABULOUS products at Creativation 2019.
I was SOO HAPPY for her!
Then she messaged ME asking
if I could create something using her products.

my answer....OF COURSE I could!!

I knew EXACTLY what I was going to do....
You see while wandering through Walmart one day,
with my bestie, Peggalish, I came across
a pair of wooden wings on a stand.
I HAD TO HAVE IT.
I picked it up and noticed it was all whobbly and it even fell apart.
.....but I HAD TO HAVE IT!
SO, I think I paid a whole $1.75
and brought it home.

As a result, I pulled the wooden wings out
removed the Christmas decoration from the front
and proceeded to pull out a few of my FAVORITE PRODUCTS!

So, I let the mono printing begin!!
FYI....I used a piece of Tissuestock as my paint palette
which I would in turn use as part of the wings.

Just after I had finished mono printing with the various paints,
I stamped with White Gesso all over the sheets
adding texture and continuity to the papers.

I even stamped on a piece of thin fabric.
LOVE IT!!

After everything was dry,
I diecut the wings making sure to cut pieces for the left and right sides.
(papers facing up and then papers facing down)

I painted Multi Medium ~ Matte to the backsides of the fabric leaves.
When dry, I proceeded to man handles all of the wing pieces.

But they weren't standing apart enough,
consequently, I pulled out my Distress Oxide ~ Vintage Photo.
I then rubbed it onto my craft mat. Just after, I spritzed it with a bit of water
and applied it to the edges of the wings with my finger.

Just after they were all distressed and dry, I let the wing building begin!

I almost forgot, I also "aged" the wooden wings.
I just LOVED how it was coming together.

Now, for the piece de la resistance
Wicked Wings ~ Small

I dabbed on various colors to give the wings an aged metal look!

I then pulled out a bowl of bits and baubles....

and found the PERFECT addition
to the Wicked Wings ~ Small
a vintage earring and a gear from the
Steampunk Gear Set.

I finished off the stand by "aging" the wood 
using Archival Inks.
