Finnabair Inspired project!

Hello all my crafty friends..

Yes it has been a while since posting. Been dealing with a few personal  issues and crafting has taken a back seat for too long.. I have managed a few projects the past couple of weeks and want to share a piece I did the other day.

I love Finnabair and her style.. Her creations are out of this world amazing. Her products glorious!

After seeing a project created by Lia Walsh on facebook I knew it was time to sit down and have a go at a canvas. So I sat down with a great step by step that Lia had graciously messaged to me and came up with a creation that I absolutely LOVE!!

So in love with this process and can't wait to start a larger piece.

I took step by step photos as well so I could share my process with you.

First I smothered a 6x6 canvas in molding paste and put on an assortment of embellishments. Leftover flowers, chipboard, a resin mannequin a little metal and a new resin from The Relics & Artifacts Collection by  Sandra Evertson.

I let it all dry overnight then covered the whole thing with Black Gesso. I sprayed  the entire canvas with LSG Golden Doubloons. Then brushed on Silks Acrylic Glaze in Autumn Leaf and Nutmeg.

Then added some Finnabair Copper Glass Glitter to give it a little sparkle..added a metal Journey tag and called it done!

I hope you  like my share. Please leave me some blog love.

Thanks for taing the time to view my post today

Until next time
Shannon :)
