Today I have another mixed media project that I made for a friend for Christmas.
This time I decorated a wooden heart and added 2 frames to include all of the family members.
The heart was prepped with white gesso before adding a thick layer of white crackle paste to give it an aged, shabby chic look. I also added extra texture (although you can't see it very well in these photos) with a Cell Theory stencil and texture paste.
The exciting bit is adding all of the decorations and embellishments.
I used art stones, wedding accessories, flowers, glitter, wooden embellishments, Christmas table decorations, glass stones....you name it, I used it....lol.
I used Metallique acrylic paints for the pink highlights...
...and then white gesso again to tone down the colours where they were a tad too brash.
More mixed media projects to follow, so I'll be back soon.
Still learning and still lovin'.
