Blue Moon Beetle - Finnabair Ambassador post

Hi there and magical Wednesday! Today I'm sharing a project I did for August Finnabair Brand Ambassador post. The theme was to use something from nature, be inspired by a mystical creature and include glitter in the make.

I really loved this theme, so I signed up for it immediately. But after that I then faced a problem - what to actually do! I thought about a layout, altered piece, canvas with some natural elements in there, but couldn’t decide. So, I thought first to go outside, find that piece of nature I’d incorporate and go from there. It was a smart move as when I had picked up this piece of bark, I knew I’d make some kind of scarab beetle on top of it.

I’ve been fascinated by ancient Egypt from an early age so choosing a scarab for the magical creature wasn’t that big of a jump. I used Art Pebbles partly in the make, but topped that with air drying clay. It’s not that visible in the finished piece anymore, but there’s a full moon stamped underneath the body of the beetle. That’s why I call him a blue moon beetle.

Thank you for stopping by today! Remember to visit Finnabair's blog (link) to see the other makes!
