Angel Heart – Mixed Media Canvas – Pascale B

Hello Sweeties,

Today, I’m up on Dusty Attic blog with a new mixed media panel for Dusty Attic.

To begin, I primed the canvas board with white gesso. Next, I added two designs with the Circle Dots and Starry Night stencils, and paper paste. I make sure that the paste was completely dry before I covered everything with both white and clear crackle pastes. I didn’t try to obtain an even surface as it wasn’t what I was looking for, but I make sure that the designs were still visible under the crackle pastes. 

I sprayed the edges of Wings #1 with water to allow the layers of the chipboard to separate to give more dimension to the wings. When done, I primed all the chipboards I’d selected with white gesso. I was careful to keep all the layers of the wings separate when I painted and dried them. 

I used mica powders mixed with a liquid fluid medium and liquid acrylic to paint the chipboards. Then I added some silver wax on top. 

My background was dry, I started to paint it with mica powders mixed with the liquid fluid medium too. Next, I stamped randomly the background and dry brushed some parts with white gesso to remind the background of the photo.

I assembled the composition to my desire and added a touch of white pearl wax to add some light. I kept some part of the middle of the Decorative Frame #4 in order to glue it easily under the photo. 

I decided to add a little cluster on the left side to remind the main cluster.

To finish, I added some glitter.
