Flowers is the theme for Arty Girlz this week and Gold the theme for CBH. Both link together beautifully and I created this small 6x6 mixed media piece combining the two. I first collaged a strip from an old book down the left-hand side and added blue chalk eye to it. I then added gold paint to the right and dried with a heat gun so that it bubbled to add texture to the surface. I then used stamps from Tim Holtz, Stamps Away, Prima and Cherry Pie Arts to stamp the background and flowers on book pages. I then cut out and coloured the stamped flowers and attached to the background, filling the centres with gold paint. The petals are curled so they lift off the surface of the backgound. Detail shots are below. Hope you like the end result, it was hard to photograph the gold and get it to look gold!!
