The image is Ruby Frou Frou, from this weeks new release at Polkadoodles.
I recently went to the craft show at Ally Pally, (and spent too much money as usual), I saw these fab MDF lightbulbs, which I really wanted to use for a project.
I am really fascinated by mixed media, although I have only dabbled a couple of times and am really not sure that I have got the hang of it, so I pulled on my big girl pants and had another go.
I am so happy with how this turned out, way better than I expected.
I started by trawling through my craft goodies to find some MDF shapes, I found a couple of dandelions and some tiny hearts, so after gessoing the lightbulb I glued them on and gessoed over those too.
Once it was dry, I grabbed a pink and turquoise distress spray ink and sprayed away, what I actually ended up with was pink and purple, but it looked pretty.
I dryed the ink and then added a touch on white pearl paint and some Shaved ice ( I love sparkle).
Next I stamped a verse to the side and added a resin butterfly.
I coloured up Miss Ruby Frou Frou with Copics in matching colours and Voila, think I may try this again!
