TCW Prayerful Angel – Steampunk’d

Hello all,

Sharing with you today a Wintery Mixed Media project that I made for The Crafter’s Workshop blog.  I Steampunk’d up the Prayerful Angel stencil with some gears, keys and other embellishments.  It was a fun way to do something a bit non-traditional.  Check out the video below for  the step by steps for this project.

Mixed Media Monthly Challege #41 – Color

Hello all,

“”
Sharing my challenge entry for October’s Color Challenge.   I found it liberating to use such a broad color scheme for this project however, I didn’t want the color to overwhelm the page.  My solution, splatters.  I really like the effect of the colorful spots and splatters in the background.  It was the perfect base for the silhouette butterfly stamp images that I used as my focal point.

“”
Featured elements:

  • Acrylic Paint Splatters
  • Masking; to create black vertical stripe in acrylic paint.
  • Washi tape
  • Stamping on tissue paper
  • Metal embellishments

Materials used/links:

Hope you all found some inspiration from my challenge project today.

Happy Day!

Mixed Media Canvas – Be Artistic

Hello all,

Finally finished up the 5 x 7 canvas (treated with Gesso) that I have been working on over the last day or two. This canvas features a texture paste, stenciled background at the top portion of the canvas and old clothing pattern pieces at the bottom of the canvas.

The entire background was then treated with a combination of chalk paint and ink sprays.  Stencil creme was used to highlight the pattern of the stencil and a script stamp was used to build up the layering.   The paper layers and fibers under the focal point were aged with Distress Ink /Oxides and Pitt pens were used to add shading around the border of the canvas.  For the focal point, I pulled out my stash of sealing wax and used the melted wax as the glue for the beads. As you can see, a few more embellishments were added here and there to finish up the piece.

I haven’t used sealing wax on my project for years, it was fun to dust off an old product and used it again.  I think it really added some nice interest to this canvas.
