Whisper - Mixed media panel for 49 and market

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on 49 and Market blog with a mixed media panel. I chose a photo from @ArtHouseWhimsy and the sunny Color Swatch Ochre collection. 


I primed the canvas board with white gesso. Then I added a design with a stencil and light modeling paste. Unfortunately, you cannot see the design as most of it finishes to be under the composition! I used different shades of light brown Magicals to color the design.   


I ripped several strips of paper from Paper 1 and Paper 2 from the Color Swatch Ochre collection. I glued on each side of the canvas. 


I selected some Ephemera from both the Color Swatch Ochre collection and the Krafty Garden, as well as some Krafty Garden Acetate elements. I started the composition with the largest elements and finished with the smaller ones. I added a small composition on the opposite side.


I selected some Krafty Garden Wildflowers laser cut to add around the main composition.


I added two dragonflies that I made with the help of the Engraved Wings set from Sizzix. 


To finish, I added gold glitter.

See possibility everywhere - Canvas for Dusty Attic

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a new mixed-media canvas. 


First, I glued a few scraps of collage paper on the left side of the canvas with a soft gel. I covered the right side of the canvas with white gesso and the collage paper with clear gesso, as I wanted the script to be seen. When everything was dry, I added a design with the Floral Stencil #2 and paper paste. With my pallet knife, I smeared the paper paste carefully on the right side. 


When everything was completely dry, I painted the canvas with a black liquid acrylic paint watered down. Next, I used two shades of grey mica to add shine to the background. I used the darker one on the right side and the lighter on the left, again to allow the script of the collage paper to be seen. 


I primed the filmstrip #2 with black gesso and the rest of the chipboards with white gesso. I just distressed the edges of the flowers with black ink. 


I started the composition with the larger elements: the Filmstrip #2. I cut the Wildflower #5 into smaller elements to add under the photo along with the Daisy #3. Next, I add, the Christmas Berries #1 and the Wildflower #5.


To finish, I added silver glitter.

Trust your crazy ideas - Mixed media panel for Finnabair

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Finnabair's blog with a mixed-media canvas board. 


Photo: ArtHouseWhimsy

First, I primed the canvas board with White Heavy Gesso. Next, I selected some papers (old books mostly) which I glued with Soft Gloss Gel to the left side of the canvas. I added a thin layer of White Heavy Gesso to blend the papers. When dry, I added a design with 3D Gloss Gel and the Machinery Stencil. I painted the background with the Burnt Sienna liquid Acrylic when everything was dry.


I primed all the resin elements I've selected with White Heavy Gesso. I covered the gears with the Rust Effect Paste. 


I used different blue waxes to color the Baroque Frame: Cobalt, Charcoal Black, and Midnight. I highlighted the details with Vintage Gold and Old Silver waxes.


For the other resin elements, I used Vintage Gold, Old silver, and  Charcoal Black waxes to remind the color of the gears I've removed from an old alarm clock.


I glued all the elements of the composition with the Heavy Body Gel. I highlighted the details with Vintage gold and Old Silver waxes. I used the Ink Black Liquid Acrylic to add some shadow where needed. 


To finish, I added blue and gold glitter.

Embrace beautiful chaos - Mixed media canvas for Dusty Attic

Hello Sweeties,

Today, I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a mixed-media canvas.


First, I primed the canvas with white gesso. When done, I covered the background with paper and light modeling pastes to add more interest. Then I added a design with the Dots Stencil and white crackle paste. I let it dry naturally to allow the crackles to appear.


I primed all the chipboard with white gesso. I glued a piece of paper on the Jigsaw Pieces, then covered them with clear crackle paste.


I built my composition to my linking starting with the Jigsaw pieces, then I add the biggest elements such as the Flower Buds #1 and the Spring Blooms #3.


Next, I added the Dandelions and I finished with the Poppy Heads. 


When everything was completely dry, I added some color with black and brown liquid acrylic paints and a lot of water. 


To finish, I added some transparent glitter and a title.

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on 49 and Market blog with a layout created with the Academia collection from our brand new designer Dennis Brutton.

I selected some Die Cut Elements: a couple of cabinets, some geometry equipment, a few labels, .. 


I also added some Laser Cut Elements: the lamp bulbs at the top of the layout and a few leaves. What can I say, I couldn't help myself to add something related to nature :)


I added a few rub ons too.


To finish, I added some splatters.

Shine Brightly - Mixed media canvas for Dusty Attic

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a new canvas. 


First I primed the canvas with white gesso, then added a design with the Fosiilised Stencil and modeling paste. When the modeling paste was completely dry, I covered the whole canvas with clear and white crackle paste, I was careful to remove all excess of the crackle pastes to allow the design to show. I let it dry naturally to allow the crackle to appear.


I painted the canvas with coral and Prussian blue liquid acrylic paints when the pastes were dry. 


I primed all the chipboards with white gesso. For the Floral Corners, I decided to use only copper, Firebird, and honey waxes.


I painted the Wildflowers #3 with the same colors of liquid acrylic paints I used for the background. For the Tea Leaves and the Mini Foliage #5, I used a combination of liquid acrylic paints and waxes.


I colored the flowers with diluted coral paint and distressed the edges with brown Distress ink.  


To finish, I added some gold and copper glitters.

After priming the canvas board with white gesso, I covered it with paper paste, I also added randomly white crackle paste. I let it dry naturally to allow the crackle to appear.


In the meantime, I primed all the chipboards with white gesso. I embossed the Dandelion with white EP. Then, I added turquoise and silver waxes. 


I covered the Flowering Vine with clear crackle paste and let dry naturally. I embossed the Geo Panel #3 with silver EP. 


I used green wax to color the Wheat #3, the Foliage #25, and the Wildflower#4 with a touch of silver. For the Wheat #2 and the Foliage #23, I used Midnight, Cobalt, and silver waxes. 


I used different shades of blue and turquoise Magical to color the background and used the same colors to paint the Flowering Vines. 


When everything was glued, I added Silver and Midnight waxes to the edges of the canvas and the crackles. To finish, I added some silver glitter to add some sparkle.
