Steampunk Butterfly

Hi Everyone!

Today I'm participating in a really fun blog hop using new products from {a vintage girl}.  These vintage and steampunk chipboard shapes are designed by Candy Rosenberg.

No photo description available.


As a designer participating in this blog hop, I received free product to use in my designs.  I used the Wicked Wings, letters from the Alphanumeric sheet and a gear from the Trinkets sheet.  In addition,
I used a canvas, various paints including some from Paper Artsy (from a Seth Apter class) and Perfect Pearls metallic powders.  I created the face using a push mold from Sculpey with some clay from Crayola.

I painted the canvas in layers starting with a dark, brownish red and layered with orange, brown and cream colors added on with a toothbrush.  The chipboard pieces of the butterfly and letters were painted with metallic with added layers of the same paints.  The face was also brushed with metallic and brown.  The body of the butterfly was cut from the chipboard in between the wings.  The arms are pieces of corrugated cardboard.  As the butterfly image morphed and developed (I started out thinking I was creating an angel) as my art pieces tend to do, I decided "emerge" was a good word to go with the butterfly.  Then, it needed a chrysalis from which to emerge.  I played with more corrugated cardboard, but that didn't look quite right and finally decided on twisted pieces of natural tissue paper.
