The Mirror Crack'd

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Here we are again for another challenge at The Mirror Crack'd and this month it's Water.

It can be anything really as long as water is involved.

Instead of a physical prize this month we would like to offer our Winner a Guest Designer spot for a future challenge so hope you will pop over and see what the Design Team have made this month to inspire you.

So here is my interpretation of this month's theme.

I started this canvas some weeks ago at a class run by Ali-Craft Workshops and it has been sat in my studio waiting to be completed. When Lin decided that this month's theme would be water, I knew how I wanted to complete it and here it is:

You may remember it looking like this. 
The photograph was taken at the workshop. I liked it but still felt something was missing. 
It was difficult to decide which way round it should be and the design seemed to be a bit Topsy-Turvy, I must have turned it round several times before deciding but with what I chose to do it really doesn't matter.

I have used a number of stencils to create the detail:

And Treasure Gold to accentuate the details, gorgeous yummy colours and the best ever gilding wax! 

Thought you might like to see the actual colours.

Closeup of the details:

Hope you enjoy looking at the way I have interpreted this theme and maybe you will get chance to pop over and join in the challenge.
The rest of the Design Team have more designs to inspire you.

So let's see your ideas for:
The Mirror Crack'd Water Challenge.

Have a great week and happy crafting,
