Hi Everyone, Saadia here,
Today, I am sharing a mixed media project with you. I hope you like it.
Let’s start :
I used an 8×10 inches canvas panel by Monte Marte, as my substrate. I covered it with Little Birdie 2 in 1 Mixed Media paste. I applied the paste through a Little Birdie stencil.
Next, I glued my embellishments with Heavy Gel medium – Matte. I glued the flowers with hot glue gun to save time.
After that, I covered everything with White gesso. This gesso is great for priming the surface before applying paint. It can also be mixed with paint, inkers to get a custom gesso colour.
Next, I painted the background with acrylic paint and applied a coat of Little Birdie One Step Crackle Medium. I let it dry slightly and then applied a lighter shade of acrylic paint.
Little Birdie Crafts chalk paints work well with One Step Crackle Medium. Cracks start to appear as soon as you apply the paint over a semi dry layer of One Step Crackle Medium. When all the layers were dry, I sealed the background with two coats of Soft Gel Medium – Matte. Little Birdie Crafts Varnish can be used in place of Gel Medium but I am more comfortable with Gel Medium.
Next, I colored my focal elements with Tinted metallic paints.
Glued Mixed media stones on the primed chipboard frame.
Next, I highlighted the areas with White Gesso and the Tinted Metallic Paints.
Added a few white splatters and some seed beads.
That’s it for today. I hope you liked my project.
