You Are Capable Of Becoming More Than You Realise

 Good Evening!  I have spent most of the day getting my neglected blog back in order (somewhat).  This made me realize that I have become one of those people that I remember thinking my parents were... you know, one of those technologically challenged people that you just cant believe they cant understand how it all works.... oh well!  So after that punishment I took myself off to more familiar surroundings for a play.
 I started with an MDF panel that I covered in 3 layers of scrunched up tissue paper.  I used soft matte gel for this, then I coated it with black gesso.

The coloured fabric was a leftover piece of transfer dyed lutrador-ish fabric.  The colours don't show up as well as they do in real life.  They almost look like they are glowing.  I wrapped some green beaded wire over the top and then placed a piece of webbed ribbon on top of that.  
 The orange circles were also leftovers from a previous project and were coloured with gelatos.  The butterfly was fussy cut from some paper from my stash and placed on top of a small piece of black cheesecloth (also a left over).
 I added the quote with some Tim Holtz chit chat stickers, sprinkled a few micro beads around, added some copper ink splashes and some treasure gold around the edges then I called it done!  Thanks for looking!
