Hi creative friends, it’s been a while since I have got messy creating a mixed media project. So I decided it would be fun to make a piece of home decor for my craft room.
This canvas measures approximately 12 x 9 inches.
I started by giving my MDF oval shape a coat of Gesso and once dry I added a layer of Multi Medium. Next I separated the layers of my beautiful vintage napkin and placed the top layer onto the MDF. Once dry I added another couple of layers of Multi Medium to seal it. I heat embossed around the edges with a gold coloured Embossing Powder. Who would have ever thought this started out as a napkin.
The next stage was to create my background onto my canvas. I started by adding Embossing paste through my brick stencil. Once dry I added a layer of Tissue paper with Multi Medium adding creases and puckers and exposing my bricks.
I then added some lace round the outside of my canvas to help frame it. Also adding some dry wall tape, Art stones and more lace around the area my picture would sit and some chipboard shapes for extra detail. Once I was happy I gave my canvas a layer of Gesso to seal everything. Then onto the fun part of using a mix of sprays from 13Arts and Lindys.
Once I had dried with my heat gun I started to highlight all my texture by dry brushing on some Gesso. I also heat embossed some sparkly Embossing Powder for another detail, which unfortunately hasn't been captured in the photos.
My butterfly was made with Resin wings which had been coloured and shaded with Gilding Wax.
The antennas are wire from my flowers curled into shape and heat embossed with gold, finishing with a rose in the centre.
Onto the fun part of layering on my floral bouquet, accents of pearls onto my chipboard shapes and bling around my lace frame.
