A Walk in the Night

I started on a path lost and confused
searching for roots,
When out of the dark you unhid from the mist
a break in the black
as the dawn approaches.


I went to a the Art Waves west show in Olds, AB and met with a company that sells Powertex products. In my spare time I sat down and learned about this cool fibre substrate, So I had to use it for my withered tree




Use gloves and adhesives are paints to soften, mold and adhere the fibre. pull it, roll it, and shape it how you want.



Then I sprinkled the Magical Mysteries embossing powder - Midnight Magic - over the drying glue areas. (I used crackle accents because that's what I could find in that moment.



Then i selected some chipboard pieces from Southern Ridge Trading Company - Happy Halloween, Bare Branches, Spiders, Flies, Open Garden Gates



The Spider web is baked with Gun Metal Embossing Powder.



And 2 tones of spray stain, iced spruce and fired brick, with dabs of Stazon refill covered the spiders.




Using Some Deco Art White paint and Spray Stain I created a mist



Then we laid down layers of the Fairy Wing Kit - Beginning with the base, the sprinkling in the colours over the hot base. this allows it to stick and melt on contact.




The Moon and Flies were covered with the Fairy Kiss. It is a translucent powder so it blends with the colour of background, but in the dark, it has a beautiful aqua glow.



The Fence was coated in Oil Rubbed Bronze and the branches used Forest Foliage or Vintage Ivy




We now have a fairy woods inspired wall board!

  2. Your project is amazing. I had never heard of Olds, AB until last week when I was doing some genealogy and found one of my ancestors settled up there in about 1905. I had to look up where it even is.

    1. Awesome! There’s not much there and even less in 1905. It’s cool to find where our family has been. Thank you for checking out the post!
