Mood Board Inspiration

Don’t go… – Pascale B

Hello Sweeties,
Today, I’m up on Dusty Attic blog with a new panel canvas inspired by the beautiful February Mood Board.

Here is the lovely February mood board

I covered the canvas with Fabric Tape which I painted with white gesso to tone down the text. Next, I added some Paper paste and Modeling paste randomly to add some texture, but I didn’t cover the whole canvas. 

When everything was dry, I painted the canvas with liquid acrylic paints. Next, I used a stencil and gilding glue to add some gold Metallic Flakes. Then I covered the Metallic Flakes with Clear Crackle paste. 

I primed the “Ferns”, the “Foliage #23”, and the “Mystic Flourish” with white gesso. I painted the leaves and flourish with green paint and added a touch of white gold wax.

For the “Window & Shutter” and the “Brick Wall Border”, I used the Linen Impasto to color them. Next, I used Ochre and Old White waxes. 

I added black paint and white gold wax to highlight the crackles. To finish I added gold glitter.
