Indoor Gardening by Rachel Harries


I've used a larger Upright this week with a combination of greyboard pieces and a toilet roll insert.
I started off by adding art stones to some of the greyboard pieces.

I then ripped some pieces of teabag paper and adhered them to the flowers. 

I added some art stones to the poppy centres.

I then painted these flowers with a combination of paints.

I added some detail in micron pen and white Posca pen and I used some wax around the edges.

I prepared the Upright and the resin pieces with some black gesso, I only painted the edges of the back plate as I will be adding paper to it.

I sprayed my greyboard selection of cogs and a clock with Ayeeda mists.

I took a toilet roll insert and cut two sections on smaller than the other and adhered the small to create a little interest I added some greyboard details and gessoed.

I adhered this to the base making sure to leave room for the back plate and added some art stones for extra interest, I added a little rusty colour paint just to start the process of getting it how I want it to look.

I  then adhered some paper to the back plate not being too fussy and once the glue was dry I sanded the edges and went around the edge with some Walnut Stain Distress ink.

I adhered the back plate to the base.

Then I position the various element in a way that I find pleasing.

I paint some butterflies from AB Studio with some 13Arts Color Glow and adhere the butterflies.

I hope you enjoyed this project, I really enjoyed bringing a little bit of the outdoors in, stay safe and see you next week.
