So, I intended for this project to be a short 15 minute video tutorial however, that didn’t work out. Ugh! I must have hit take the photo button instead of video because that is all I got out of the venture. Bummer!
I really just wanted a quick and relaxing project for tonight anyhow, so all is good. This project was done on a 6″x 6″ wood panel that I picked up at Craft Warehouse last time I was up in Idaho. It provided a nice flat, solid base to work with so the texture paste went on with ease. After giving the panel a quick brush over with grey paint, I applied texture paste through two different stencils (top/bottom). After dry, I sealed the piece with matte medium.
I then sprayed blue and green acrylic paint on the portion of the canvas where I was going to be placing the focal point. I wanted to create a nice backdrop for the junk jewelry pieces. A strip of metal studded ribbon was adhered across the lower middle portion of the canvas to provide a break between the top and bottom textured areas.
I really enjoy collecting and using junk jewelry on my mixed media pieces. For this project, I used a couple of metal flower charms and a variety of beads. Finally, I highlighted areas on the focal piece and canvas with a White Artist Pitt pen and then sprayed the entire project with Color Bloom spray (Pearl White).
I hope you enjoyed this project. Hopefully, my next video will be more successful!
