In my heart - Layout for 49 and Market

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on 49 and Market blog with a Valentine's layout. I used the Vintage Artistry Serenity collection. 

I primed the Tranquil paper from the Vintage Artistry Serenity collection with clear gesso. Then I added a few strips of Serenity Washi Tape. 

I selected some elements from the Laser Cut Elements and Ephemera Bits Which I added under the photo. I added some pieces of cardboard in between to add some volume. 

I added two Plum Wildflowers and some rub-on leaves. I added a few Plum Tickets in between the Ephemera.

I added burgundy and brown inks to match the color of the flowers.

To finish, I added some burgundy glitter.

Own your story - Mixed media frame for Dusty Attic DT

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a small mixed media frame.  

I started by making a background for the frame using a piece of cardboard that I covered with canvas. Then, I primed them both with white gesso.

I selected different sizes of gears and a few leaves from the Botanical Mix chipboards. I primed all the selected chipboards with white gesso. I glued all the elements in place around the photo and added a few flowers as well. 

I colored the gears and botanical mix with the Burnt Umber liquid acrylic and a lot of water. When happy with the result I added some White Gold and Old White waxes. 

I covered the frame with clear gesso. When dry, I colored it with brown and black liquid acrylic paints. Then I dry brush with white gesso to whiten the frame.

To finish, I added some glitter.

Marie-Hélène and the redfish - Mixed media canvas for 49 and Market

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on 49 and Market blog with a mixed media canvas board. Again, I chose one of my vintage postcards called Marie-Hélène and the redfish (Dambier, 1957).

I primed the canvas board with white gesso. Then I add a design with a stencil and paper paste. When dry, I painted the design with black, brown and white inks and liquid acrylic paints to match the color of the backside of the Color Foundation Paper 4 from the Plum Grove which I added on both side of the canvas. 

I selected different elements like the stamps from the Laser Cut Elements, tickets and cards from the Ephemera Bits to add under the photo. I added a few stamps from Eggplant EssentialTicket and a Plum Filmstrip. 

I added some flowers from the Laser Cut Wildflowers at the bottom. I added some cardboard in between to add some dimension. 

On the right side, I added some tickets and smaller flowers to remind the main cluster. 

When happy with my composition, I added some rub-on text from the Essential collection in Eggplant
I found that the background I made was a bit too dark, so I whitened it with Matte Old White and White Pearl waxes and added a touch of Sweet rose.  

To finish, I added glitter.

Wild - Mixed media canvas for Dusty Attic DT

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Dusty Attic with my first project of the year. I decided to make a canvas with another photo from the amazing Christina Fisher

The photo I chose was perfect to work with the beautiful January color combo. 

I covered the canvas with plaster paste. When dry, I added a design with the Circle Dot stencil and Metallic flakes. Next, I painted the background with different brown and green paints. I darkened the edges with black paint. When happy with the result, I added clear crackle paste. 

I primed all the chipboard elements with white gesso. I attached the Boho Feather to the Designer Disc - Dreamcatcher with chains. In between, I added a few Wildflowers #1. On top of the Dreamcatcher, I add a Cow Skull #1. Under the photo, I added some Foliage #27 and poppies pods from my garden. 

When all the elements of the composition were in place, I began to paint everything. I started to paint the Dreamcatcher and the elements around in brown, then I added orange to the Wildflowers and the Feathers. 

I colored the Foliage and the poppy pods with green paints with a little orange. 
To finish, I highlight some details with Aged Brass wax.
