Hello again creative friends.
I am sharing my new project as
Design Team member for 13arts ~
a mixed media canvas as inspiration
for the June Mood Board Challenge
using paper and elements from the
HOME SWEET HOME collection.
I prepared the background by adhering
paper from the collection to my canvas
and then covering it with a generous layer
of gel medium.
I then applied sticky glue randomly to
the paper using a paintbrush. Once the
glue had dried and was sticky, I applied
metallic flakes to the it, allowing it to
set before brushing off the excess flakes.
I combined texture powder with white gesso,
mixing it thoroughly before applying it
along the edges of my canvas with a spatula,
sometimes over some of the metallic flakes.
I also stenciled along the edges of the product,
allowing it to dry completely to
expose the cracks.
Once everything was dry, I diluted
Garnet Color Glow with water and
applied it onto my canvas, around my
main composition, spraying with water
to allow the colour to more.
I painted resin pieces with brown paint
as well as Garnet Color Glow combined with
liquid acrylic medium and then dry brushing
with white gesso once all product was dry.
I then also applied metallic flakes
to the resin pieces using sticky glue.
I hope that this project has inspired you to
create your own for the June challenge.
