Welcome to my final post for 2020…. however it wont be my last post for Dusty Attic. While everyone enjoys a quiet break ill be busy in my little studio creating masterpieces for 2021! Bring it on, I say!! I hope that you have enjoyed my creations as much as I have. With that in mind I have made a little offering for you all… that a little piece of heaven fills your night sky with love, light and healing in 2021.
I have wanted to do something special with my mystic boho obsession and Jen and Nuneka came to the rescue with these fantastic new designs. I have been holding onto some Stamperia Cosmos papers for just this occasion… I attached an image of the moon to a canvas panel of 8 x 8″. I then added a generous amount of clear crackle paste.
I painted all the chipboard with TWO coats of white gesso. I was planing to use an oil paint indigo wash over the whole page so I wanted to protect my chipboard from the wet medium. I filled some of the moon with seed beads and filled in the edges with art stones. I painted some of the focal points with a gold acrylic paint. This has a high resist finish and I knew that it wouldn’t absorb the wash.
I used modelling paste to create some texture and create hair and a dress for my little fairy. Once I applied the wash I used a selection of waxes to add highlights. I love the way that the moon in the background now looks like the earth!
Here is my final closeup… I hope you like this kind of Mixed Media work. This collage on canvas really sings to my soul and is my absolute joy!
