Keep smiling… – Pascale B

Hello Sweeties,

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

To begin, I covered the canvas with Paper paste. Then I used liquid acrylic paints to color the paste: I added several layers of paints and I dried in between each layers to obtain the effect of an old wall. 

I primed all the chipboards with white gesso. I used a foam to do it to be able to add a thin layer. 

I colored the Lemon Leaves with Advocado and Umber liquid acrylics. I have selected different elements from Foliage Cluster #1, #2 & #3 and from the Botanic Mix #1 & 3. I used the same colors for the leaves of all these elements. I added Tiger Eye’s Stone Jewel paste to the flowers of the different elements.

I covered the frame with metallic flakes, then with clear crackle paste. And to finish, I added sepia wax to highlight the cracks. 

To finish, I added some Golden Dragon paste and glitter.
