Appreciating Nature

Hello everyone!  This quote really resonated with me and I wanted to make a hanging with it on.  So continuing with the 'Layer' theme over at Tando I have layered up some flora and fauna pieces onto a 6x6inch frame.  I originally prepared more pieces to add but preferred a simpler version so that the quote stood out better ;-D
 
 
The back of the frame has been covered in script paper and coated with a thin layer of DecoArt Titanium White.  The outer frame has been painted green then a thick coat of Texture Paint added (the thicker it is the larger the crackle but it still feels smooth)
 
 
The flora and fauna elements have been painted direct from the bottles to give vibrant results! A bit of over stamping and a quote finished it off.
 
I have used:
 
6x6inch FRAME
FIR TREES - be great for Christmas eh!
MINI RABBITS
MINI BUTTERFLIES
BIRDS ON A BRANCH
 
DecoArt:
CRACKLE PAINT
MEDIA FLUIDS - Titanium White, Quinacridone Magenta, Burnt Umber, Cobalt Turquoise Hue, Yellow Green Light, Raw Sienna
 
Please feel free to join in with any of our prompts (take a look at this months page at the top of the Tando blog for more info). 
 
Thank you for taking a look today, Lots of HUGS xxx
