capture life's moments 35

Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! May has gone totally self-indulgent this week as it is her birthday week! So what will you create? M could stand for the month of May, mist, markers, magenta, moved lawn, metal, millinery, a masculine project, mounted stamps...
For me, "M" is for a mixed media canvas featuring a variety of metals.
I love the shimmery appearance that you get when you use the Ranger Adirondack paint metallic Acrylic Paints so I thought this would be the perfect challenge to put them to good use! I painted an owl onto a piece of canvas using techniques and skills I learned from taking an on-line course (click HERE for more details). I used a combination of Gold and Silver paints. 
I adhered a foil wing which I embossed using the Tim Holtz Riveted Texture Fade. Once the painting was dry, I stitched it to a piece of Tim Holtz Melange fabric then adhered it to a Burlap Panel
I added detail to the owl using Waterfall Blue Stickles and Platinum Pearl liquid pearls. I wanted to give the owl an overall steampunk vibe so I embellished with a variety of fun Tim Holtz products including: Industrious Stickers, a Heart Charm, Metal Word Band, a Regal Adornment and many more listed below:
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created!

What a totally fabulous creation! I love it when artists incorporate their own illustrations and you nailed it with this owl! You have given her such great personality and a bit of diva-ness with all that shimmer and bling. I really like how she comes to life and is packed with charm. I also really enjoyed seeing how you combined al those different elements and techniques- especially the metal wing! Great work and I look forward to hopefully seeing more of your illustrations in the future!
