Perfect Sunset and Captured Moment – Michelle Carrick – TWO Mood Board Inspirations

Good morning Beautiful people,
I’m back this month with two impressions of this month’s mood board.

This is my first one; this is my
daughter and her boyfriend on signal hill, Cape Town.


This is simple yet effective mixed media
I found that with the Dusty chippies, we
get a lot of left over board. So not wanting to waste, I cut the left over
board into pieces and placed on my canvas.

Then covered with tissue paper, using clear gesso and Let dry.
Using Prima art alchemy paints I covered the back ground.

I then stencilled with graphite past and
a Prima 
Bloom collection stencil

I then stared putting it all together Using wire netting Flowers Clips and sequins 

I found metal frames and flowers to add a bit of sparkle and added my Words@play titles.

My Second impression is …


This photo of my Doctor Ruth and her new
husband Peter was so fitting!
This is a mixed media layout, inspired
by Finnabair.

For the back ground I use lace, strips
of canvas and bandage tape, placing sort of in the middle of my canvas using
heavy body gel, dry. I then began to place my flowers; metal embellishments and
straws, once again using heavy body gel. Always placing my photo to check and
see if things are where I want them.

I then stared with Prima Art Alchemy
sparks paint spraying with water to create the desired effect but please
remember to do this, one by one and drying, so the colours don’t run and become
muddy. Touching again with the paint I want to make stand out.

I added bobbins and thread plus thimbles, as well as heart pins.
 I truly enjoyed this layout!!
