Mixed Media Wall Decor

Hello Friends. I hope you  all are having a great time!

DT member Vidhu Thareja, back on the blog with a new project. The ‘Mixed Media Challenge’ is on and a little inspiration is always welcome… . Today I have created a wall decor, using some of the Little Birdie Mixed Media craft supplies.  First  have  a look  at  my  project.

.

I took a MDF board measuring 12*8in and started with sanding the surface.

I primed the surface using Little Birdie Acrylic White Gesso. I have applied two coats of gesso, leaving enough drying time between each coat. 

The next step was to create texture. I have applied Little Birdie Mixed Media Paste using a palette knife. I left it to dry. Then to enhance the texture, I have used Little Birdie Chalk Paints – Butter Milk, Fortune Cookie, Wild Wasabi, Misty Rose and Charcoal, using the dry brush technique. I have done dry brushing with all the colors, using the same brush.

Now I have created a brick effect. For that I have applied Little Birdie Mixed Media Paste through a stencil. To create a stone wall effect, I used Little Birdie Black Gesso. I have applied it through the ‘Stone Wall’ Stencil using a palette knife.

I wanted to give some mossy effect between on the bricks. For the purpose I have used Little Birdie Embossing Texture Paste – Avocado Smoothie. I have mixed a little amount of Chalk Paint – Charcoal in it. Did some dry brushing on the bricks with brown acrylic paint and with Chalk Paint – Snow on the stone wall. I had a beautiful chipboard 3D Open Widow in my stash which I had bought  from the store long back. I decided to use that. Itsy Bitsy has awesome range of chipboards. Do not forget to check them all out. I have painted the chipboard with Chalk Paint – Charcoal and then rubbed Metallic Wax – Antique Gold and Glimmer Moss with my finger and used a brush also to cover the corners.

I did not want to leave the window blank so for that I have used elements from the Little Birdie paper pack ‘ Shabby Chick Bouquet’. Instead of adhering it on the base directly, I have used a chipboard piece. I cut the chipboard according to the shape of window and then first adhered a cutout from another paper. Then I adhere the Element using Deco Magic Glue. I adhered one more element on the right top corner also. I have distressed the edges of both the elements before adhering them.

I  sealed the decoupaged element using the same Deco Magic Glue and then after some time applied Little Birdie Decor Varnish – Gloss on the whole surface.

Now it is time to add some flowers. I had chipboards – Luxurious Leaves and decided to use that along with Little Birdie handmade flowers. I wanted to add some interest to the flowers so I applied Little Birdie Sparkle Paste – Gold Glitz on the flowers. I paint the chipboard leaves with Chalk Paint – Wild Moss and then rubbed Metallic Wax – Glimmer Moss on top of it.

To highlight the brick effect a little more, I did some dry brushing with Chalk Paint – Terracotta. Finally arranged the flowers and stuck the window also. I had a chipboard cutout ‘ Sweet Life’. I dabbed brown acrylic color on it and then rubbed Metallic Wax – Antique Gold on it. For the left top corner I selected another beautiful chipboard ‘ Ornate Pole’, on which first I have  dabbed black Chalk Paint and then did dry brushing with silver metallic acrylic color. I have used Little Birdie Silicon Glue to stick the chipboards. A beautiful mixed media wall decor is ready.
