Mood Board Inspiration

Show up… – Pascale B

Hello Sweeties,
Today I’m on Dusty Attic blog with a mixed media panel inspired by the June color combo. 

Here is the lovely combo of color. 

I cut a piece of clear acrylic to add under the frame. I add a design with the Flourish stencil and Rose Gold Icing paste. When the paste was completely dry, I added some nuance to the Icing paste with different waxes to match the June colors. 

I primed the MDF frame with white gesso, then I added an uneven layer of plaster paste. When dry, I add an uneven layer of white crackle paste this time. 

While it dried, I primed the selected chipboards with black gesso.I colored the flowers of the Mini Vines with the Eggplant Impasto, then I added a touch of Heather Hill wax. I used the Charcoal Black matte wax to color the Ferns, then highlight the details with Old Denim and White Gold waxes. 

For the Tropical Foliage, I used Old Denim, Graphite, and Heather Hill waxes. I waxed the Wrought Iron Fence as well as the birdhouse with Graphite and White Gold. 

I colored the frame with liquid acrylic paints and when dry, I give a vintage look with an antiquing paste. I glued all the elements of the composition and added a few flowers.

To finish I added some glitters.
