One Winged Angel – Pascale B

Hello Sweeties,
Today I’m up on Dusty Attic blog with a new mixed media panel. I work with another photo of Christina Fisher call the “One Winged Angel”.

After priming the HDF panel with white gesso, I glued a piece of tissue paper on the lower half. On the upper half, I added a design with the flourish stencil and modeling paste. When dry, I cover the upper half with brown paint mixed with black gesso. 

I painted all the chipboards and the resin elements with the same brown paint mixed with black gesso. I embossed the ATC Frame #4 with Silence is Golden EP. 

Before starting to glue anything, I waxed lightly the upper half of the background with Bronze Age wax to highlight the details of the design which have disappeared under the dark brown paint. Then, I started my composition. First, I glued some natural branches, then the frame. From there, I continued with the chipboards: the Spring Blooms #1, the Foliage #23, the small branches #4, the Leafy Corners, and the mini feathers.

When all the elements were glued, I colored them with different waxes starting with the darkest to the lighter. I used Bronze Age, Aged Brass, Vintage Gold, and finally White Gold. 

I decided to add more natural elements like lichen painted with copper metallic paint and dry hydrangea flowers.  

I finished the composition with gold pearls, mica flakes, and glitters.
