Chunky crafts

Well here is another swap I am in. This one is called Famous Artist Chunky swap.
This 4x4 piece will become part of a chunky book when other pages arrive. We had to choose an artist and their painting and create a page around them. I have always loved the work of Francisco Masseria with his beautiful sweep of colour around his subjects. To it I added silk rosebuds, fabric gold leaves, crystals and a 3D butterfly. The painting is called Penny. I haven't finished it yet, as the back has to be decorated as well. I think I shall call it a "Penny for your thoughts", as
she has that far away look in her eyes. The background paper is a digital find and has similar swirls as the painting.
