Welcome to my creative space!
I have created a spring-themed home decor piece to celebrate the warming days of this new season we're entering with this 3-D layered butterfly wall hanging featuring Little Birdie Flowers from the gorgeous Song of the Sea collection along with their beautiful decoupage paper, primed chipboard pieces, and fabulous mixed media products.
Here's a close-up shot so you can see just how much dimension there is on this beauty.
I have created a full DIY video tutorial for you with voice instructions to share all the details on how to create this beautiful spring piece including the sweet 3-D layered butterfly and faux metal gears. I hope you find inspiration and learn new techniques as you view it.
In this 3-D Layered Butterfly Wall Hanging tutorial learn how to:
~ Create a 3-D layered butterfly
~ Create gorgeous faux metal/patina gears from chipboard using gilding flakes and waxes
~ Enhance mixed media projects with natural elements
~ Alter flowers for a patina effect
~ Use layers to develop dimension
