Sometimes I sit and think about the freedom that a flying creature has. Go anywhere, anytime and enjoy the scenery. Unless of course there are 100miles/hour winds and torrential downpours. Then I'll choose legs over wings in a heartbeat.
Gauche Alchemy has a great challenge on right now called "Free as a Bird". Interpret as you will but if you need some inspiration, check out the Gauche Blog.
For my addition to the Gauche Girls projects, I created this plate using a very old worn out trivet. I painted the top with black gesso, then added some Fire Brick crackle paint. To create a really cool effect, when the gesso and paint were still wet, I pressed in some Punchinella. Let that dry completely, then ripped the punchinella outta the paint. You can see two different looks on my project using the same technique.
I used pieces from the Scarlet Fever, Envy Green and Black Out color kits as well as an image from the Winged Things ATC pack
