Listen to your Heart – Pascale B

Hello Sweeties,

Today I’m up on Dusty Attic blog with a new mixed-media canvas. This one is larger than the ones I used usually: this one is 5×45 cm

I primed the canvas with white gesso. Next, I added a design to the upper part of the canvas with a stencil and Emerald Jewel paste. I covered the lower part with paper paste and to the edge of the upper part. When dry, I paint the upper part with different green liquid acrylic paints and the bottom part with umber paint to match the background of the photo. Next, I added some gold metallic flakes to the lower flakes. Then, I added clear crackle paste to the edge. I added more colors when the crackle paste was dried.

I primed the chipboards with white gesso. I painted the Mandala with different shades of coral paint to match the color of the wall of the photo. 

I painted all the leaves with different shades of green.

I covered the Wrought Iron Fence Border and the Mini Morrocan Lamps with gold metallic flakes, and then I added some copper wax.

I added flowers in mango and pistachio to remind the colors of the dress.

To finish, I added some glitter. Dusty Attic products:
