Pretty in pink.

Hi girls
 Sometimes during a class I just have that urge to stop teaching and jump in and take part and make something for myself. That was what I wanted to do on Saturday, maybe it was because Rita enjoyed herself and created something so beautiful. This is her canvas which she named: 
"The birds and the bee".

She used gel medium to glue down the serviette to the canvas. A little bit of gesso on top of the serviette got rid of the harshness of the colours and then, when completely dry, she did some stamping. Later she sprayed the canvas with Tattered Angels.

Then it was time to fill the tubes with everything in sight, small shells, beads, sequins and words cut from a book. Pictures, words and fibers on the tubes then completed the look she wanted. Each tube has a cork decorated with beads, bead caps and a head pin to keep it in place.
Inspired by this canvas she has done, I hope I get a chance to make one this week.
May your Monday not be blue!


  1. I love love love this and how soft and pink and magical it appears.
    What is serviette? Is it the glass tubes?
    Happy creating...

  2. Oh this is beautiful! How do you adhere the tubes to the canvas? TFS!
