Imagine – Pascale B

Hello Sweeties,
Today I’m up on Dusty Attic blog with a new mixed media canvas. 

First, I primed the canvas with white gesso. Next, I started to add some color with Burnt Sienna and Black liquid acrylic paints. When dry, I added a design with the Lace stencil and the Burnt Amber.  

Next, I mixed some Paper Paste with the Burnt Sienna paint and applied the paste with a pallet knife randomly. I added here and there some metallic flakes. Finally, I stamped some text with black Archival ink and added some clear crackle paste. 

While the crackle paste was drying, I primed all the chipboards with white gesso. Then I painted them with the Burnt Sienna paint. I continued with waxes: first the Red Aber, next the Charcoal Black. 

When the crackle paste was completely dry, I colored it with Burnt Sienna and Black paints to reveal the cracking. I glued all the chipboards to mimic the headdress from the photo. 

I added some touch of Old Silver and White Gold to highlight the chipboards. I added some Violet and Prussian Blue paint to the background.

To finish, I added some glitters.
