It is time for another fabulous Corrosive Challenges challenge. The challenge is Animal Companions. Your project must include an animal image. We are sponsored by the amazing Delicious Doodles. I am using two Delicious Doodles images...Pegasus and Ivy Fairy. I wanted to put them in a meadow so I went for a canvas instead of doing a card.
I started by coloring my images with Copics and cutting them out. I printed both images twice so I could pop up the fairy wings and one of the horse wings. I also added some glitter glue to the wings for some sparkle. I grabbed a 5x7 canvas and coated it with gesso. I began using acrylic paints and painted the sun. The sky and the grass came next. Once I had my base layer, I sponged on some texture doing the grass and greenery. Then, using Mod Podge I glued Pegasus to the canvas and covered him with a thin layer of MP. Then I did the same with Ivy.
After they were in place and dry, I added some modeling paste for more texture in front of the images. I added some micro beads to the paste also. After the paste was dry, I painted it with more acrylic paint. My favorite part of this is the raised wings. I used Helmar Scrap Dots to raise them up off the canvas. I am going to say that this is one of my new favorite things to use. When I was very young, one of my mother's friends bought me a paper crafting kit that had silicone gel in it for raising the layers of your project up. I had totally forgotten about it until I came across Scrap Dots. Welcome back old friend.
I hope you like it and I hope you head over to Corrosive Challenges to see what the rest of the amazing Design Team has created for your inspiration. Thanks so much for stopping by.
