Ok, so it was my Good friend Shari's Birthday again, and it seems every year on her birthday there's a movie released that we go and see. The last couple of years it's been "The Hunger Games" and "Catching Fire", so this year it was "Mockingjay part 1". Now I know peacocks and phoenix are not quite mockingjays, but phoenix are a fire birds and Shari likes red... so it was close enough.
|Here you can see the gold glitter & sequins shine.|
I didn't put the gold sequins on every eye of the tale because I thought it might be too much, but then needed some more somewhere (the bottom) else, for some balance.
|I used Melon Mambo as the lightest colour to finish the body & wing, I found that it gave it more of a crimson red (not that you can tell from the photo).|
