The feathers are courtesy of Ely at http://www.quillnaros.etsy.com and http://www.quillnaros.blogspot.com. Ely paints feathers and the black, red and white one (left) that I purchased from her worked perfect with this piece as well as some little fluffy feathers that her "birds" shed...or molted I guess is the correct terminology that she has sent me.
I used a photo of a canadian postage stamp and love the colors....so decided to do a mixed media rendition.....Note the zipper on the right which acts as the stem for the sunflower...and I have momma and baby ladybug buttons to carry on the color theme..... It is amazing how the pieces just kinda fall into "being". In the sunflower I have added different size swarovski clear crystals to give some glam and sparkle to the piece as well as my favorite Glamour dust Paints which I have added here and there. The painting itself was done using Liquitex soft bodied paints and the canvas is a handmade, handstretched canvas board that is an ATC. One it is matted, framed and the extra elements are added we have a neat, one of a kind, piece of art.
This one is titled just "ROO"
