to Travel is to Live – Michelle Carrick – Mood Board Inspiration


I’m here with my last impression of the April mood board. I love to travel and am lucky enough to have been to Chicago and see the Bean! 

Unfortunately, I don’t have such a gorgeous picture 
but found this photo on Pexels!
This is a mixed media canvas!

For the back ground I started mixing Dusty Attic paints
Raisen/Cranberry/Sugar plum in heavy gesso.
{I kept adding bit by bit of paint until I had the desired colour}

Using a pallet knife I applied my paint mixture on the the canvas a third of the way down.  Once dry I used Prima Liquid acrylic paint
~Black Ink with fluid medium~ 

I then fussy cut Kaisercraft Factory- ironwork’s page, attach there the two colours meet on the canvas.

Then I stencilled City Skyline – Dusty Attic- using graphite paste – Prima
after drying, I then flipped the stencil and using Nuvo Glitter paste
~ White and Gold~

Then I used Sunset Orange – Tim Holtz Alcohol ink to add a touch of colour.

For my Chip boards I used All purpose ink
~frost White~
then touching with Prima acrylic paint 
~Black Berry/Iris Potion~ and shading the 
edges with these two colours.

Attaching everything down,
and adding a touch of the white Nuvo glitter paste to the skyscrapers>
