The Collection by Rachel Harries



This weeks post is an assemblage piece that's a little collection.
I've used a three different moulds Nature Lover Watercolour Floral and Birds and Bats.
I used Air Dry Clay and created my casts.

I stamped the "Just Lou" Butterfly on to some Tissue Paper which I've ripped around to adhere just one wing to my cardstock, I'm using a WaterColour Cardstock. I create my assemblage/collage with the casts and also a twig and a feather I picked up on a walk.

I then mounted this onto a piece of packaging cardboard that I had exposed some of the corrugated area. I then added a layer of That's Crafty! White Gesso, avoiding the butterfly as I want to keep that image visible.

I then use That's Crafty! Multi Surface Paints with lots a water and drying between layers.

I then use That's Crafty! Texture Stamps Set 2 without a stamping block with Walnut Stain Distress ink in a few areas.

I then apply a couple of waxes just in a few places to add depth and dimension.

And there we go that's my piece for this week, I hope you like it, see you next week.
