Hi! Francine here with my first Leaky Shed Studio post in July.  During July we are partnering with Leaky Shed Studio.  The theme is "flying" so I decided to make a canvas collage.


I took a 9x11 canvas and painted it blue and added some white to look like clouds as it is supposed to be the sky.

I added a Hot Air Balloon, Barn Swallow, Ornithoper and Snow Flakes all from Leaky Shed Studio.

To the bird I added a top hat, an eye and a propeller that "really moves".   A piece of twine attaches to the propeller to the hot air balloon.  The hot air balloon is painted and decorated with rhinestones and glitter.

In the middle of the Ornithoper is a clock with a key in it to signify "time flies".  I then added Snowflakes from Leaky Shed Studio.  On those I used stickles in stardust.

To the sides I added drywall tape for a little texture.  To finish my canvas I added scrabble pieces that spell out SOAR and FLY.


Supplies used:
Leaky Shed Studio Hot Air Balloon
Leaky Shed Studio Barn Swallow
Leaky Shed Studio Ornithoper
Leaky Shed Studio Snowflakes
Altered Pages charm, gesso, paint, stickles and glitter

From my stash: Steampunk embellishments, canvas, scrabble pieces, rhinestones
