Design Team Project

Dream Big – Pascale B Scrap

Hello Sweeties,
Today I’m up on Dusty Attic blog with my second project for this month: a mixed media canvas.

I covered the canvas with paper paste. I didn’t bother to have an even layer. When the paste was completely dry, I painted it with liquid acrylic paints that I made run with water. The top was painted with Ink Black. For the bottom part, I used different shades of blue liquid acrylic paints until I obtain the same blue color as the photo. When the paints were still wet, I added White Titanium to add more depth and Prussian Blue.

I primed all the chipboards with black gesso. I covered the Mandala #1 and the Word Disc #1 with Tiger Eyes Jewel paste to remind the color of the hair of the girl. I just added some gold with Vintage Gold wax.

For the Spider Chrysanthemum, I just added Mystic Turquoise wax to add a touch of blue to the upper part of the canvas. I used the Firebird wax for the Fern Fronds. 

I painted the Leaves #5 with Unicorn Hair Sparks and rub them with Vintage Gold wax. 

I decide to turn the title to black to add more contrast with the Ink Well paint and rubbed it gently with White Gold wax.

To finish the composition, I added some glitter, sequin, and microbeads
