Here is another mixed media project. I tried to take pictures while I was working on it. I hope you try this project or one similar.
|Here is the project when it was finished. The words in the center say " see the beauty in every day things|
I then painted a layer of crackle medium onto the canvas. You can use Elmers clear/gel glue if you do not have crackle medium. there is even a tutorial HERE if you would like to know how.
I then painted the canvas with Apple barrel brand paint in the color Cloudless. I added black India Ink splatters. I let it all dry while I dipped the paint brush tips into paint and set them aside to dry. I also gathered materials from all my stash piles. Metal pieces, scraps of crochet doilies, chipboard pieces, and Flowers. The words are from past Maya Road ware house boxes!!
|I got some artist pallets for another project and they came with a full set of (ehhh) paint brushes. Not wanting to throw them away I decided to recycle them and use them on this project.|
|Before I added gesso. I hate wasting anything so, I used the bottoms of the paint brushes that I cut to fit in the bottom corner.|
|Still needs to be lighter|
|Needs a bit more gesso|
|hmmm, now it seems to fade into the back round too much.|
|I recently got some 13 arts glass beads, I totally love them. I use them every chance I get.|
|I love the way the piece of doily peeks out from beneath the chipboard daydream word. If you look really closely you can see the mess that hides underneath.|
Have a wonderfully crafty day!!
