Hello everyone, Raj Mehta here today with a mixed media inspiration for you.
Let’s create a mixed media canvas which looks straight out of a fairytale .
Step 1: Cut out a crescent moon shape out of 1mm chipboard and apply a thick layer of mixed-media paste. Create craters using the back end of the paintbrush . Once dry, paint it with Icy Aqua multi-surface paint . Apply a coat of white gesso over it after the paint is dry.
Step 2: Cut out two house shapes out of the 1mm chipboard and add texture to it with stencil and mixed-media paste. Apply a coat of black gesso and once dry add some colour to it with Icy Aqua.
Step 3: Take a canvas board and apply Little Birdie grainy texture paste through the stencils. Apply a coat of black gesso over the dry textured surface.
Adhere the crescent moon with silicone glue. Dilute some Icy Aqua with water and colour around it.
Step 4: Adhere the houses we’ve prepared earlier with a few dried twigs coated with black gesso.
Step 5: Paint the chipboard elements with the same color and adhere them on the canvas with Little Birdie handmade flowers.
Step 6: Apply some Blue Spa chalk paint randomly over the elements for colour variation.
Step 7: With the Little Birdie Vintage Gold metallic wax highlight the textured areas . You can use your fingers or a brush and apply it gently over the raised areas.
Step 8: Add some finishing touches with sparkling dots and splashes of white paint.
Done ! A dreamy mixed media canvas is ready.
