Ok, I hope I am back on track here with my blogging! Here is the update on the Lion and Tiger Folding Screen I last began posting about.
For this project I used two two stencils: the Moorish Trellis by Royal Design Studio and Birds On A Branch by Cutting Edge Stencils. I eliminated the birds and just used the leaves with the latter stencil design.
This folding screen differed from my previous screens because it was made from three, solid panelled doors. I found it much more difficult to work with this type of panel and more restrictive when it came to laying out and working on the design... Not to mention, because they are solid, they weigh a ton!
I used A LOT of Swarovski gems on this one!
A closer look at the center portion of the screen. All of the leaves were done with a combination of metallic paint and foils, then the gems were added. Only the eyes of the two animals received gems.

The gems worked really well for the eyes, giving them just a little sparkle!
