Under the Clouds – Pascale B

Hello Sweeties,
Today I’m up on Dusty Attic blog with a new mixed media canvas. I worked with another photo from Christina Fisher.

Here is the amazing mood board with its soft colors

First, I covered the canvas with Plaster paste. When dry, I painted it with Burnt Sienna and Nude liquid acrylic paints. After drying, I added a design with the Burnt Sienna. I added some metallic flakes here and there. I covered the edges with Clear Crackle paste. When dry, I used a Vintage Antiquing Cream to reveal the cracks. 

I primed the Star Banner with black gesso before adding Gold Metallic Flakes. I primed the Moon, the Clouds, Birdhouses, and the Cherry Blossom with white gesso. 

I paint the Clouds with White Pearl and a hint of Soft Satin, the Moon with Unicorn Hair, and White Pearl. For the birdhouses, I used Burnt Sienna with waxes.

I painted the branch of the Cherry Blossom with Burnt Sienna and the flowers with Soft Satin and a touch of White Pearl. I added some Old White matte wax to matify them, then added White Pearl wax on the edges. 

To finish, I added some glitters.
