A few days ago I shared the picture of these giant lilies on Instagram which I made back when I used to enjoy Punch crafting, Punch craft is a little out of fashion now but I really wanted to make something with these flowers because they are just so beautiful! So I made this Shabby chic layout featuring these Giant lilies…

Today I have a vintage and very rustic looking mix media canvas to share. I’m sorry for not uploading for soo long as I was busy with other commitments. I have been working on some mix media projects lately and I am really enjoying it! I have started hoarding mix media supplies now but also found some affordable alternatives which I will be sharing in a separate blog post. Now onto my project…

Finnabair black gesso

Prima designer flourish stencil
For this project, I also used some metal charms, resin roses, cardboard pieces, random metal junk, pearl millet grains, micro mini beads, metal chain, my handmade flowers.
Firstly, I covered my canvas board with white crackle paste and also stencilled some on the cardboard pieces and frame. After the paste was dry and the crackles started appearing I gave a light coat of black gesso. I glued all the pieces and embellishments using the 3D gloss gel and also applied some mini beads and grains in the corners and primed with gesso.
I started painting with the shade plum preserves using a light hand and highlighted a few areas with steampunk copper and further highlighted with the shade ancient coin. I just love the finish of these art alchemy paints. The metal chain is also glued using 3D gloss gel.
I hope you found my creation inspirational, Thank you for stopping by!
Today I have an Altered embroidery hoop layout to share. I made this shabby chic layout using the beautiful rose quartz collection from prima and some Finnabair products. Hope you like it!
The embroidery hoop is 14 cms in diameter. I started off by securing the fabric tightly between the rings ( I have used a lacy netty fabric for this project) and then covered everything with a coat of white gesso. I have used some pieces of cardstock that are deeply scored at 1/8th inch throughout and painted them with the art alchemy metallic paint by Finnabair in shade vintage rose. The image I have chosen is from the rose quartz paper collection, I have also fussy cut some flower images from the rose quartz paper collection. Before sticking the flowers and embellishments, I painted the base with the art alchemy metallic paint in shade silver spoon and black gesso by Finnabair.
The flowers I have used are also from the Rose quartz collection, the flowers are dusted with frosting powder by Rajni Chawla. I have also used some leaf die cuts, Finnabair’s art basics 3D gloss gel, micro mini beads, mini resin roses, flat back pearls. The flat back pearls are painted with the art alchemy silver spoon and highlighted with gesso. Lastly, I added some spritz of black gesso.
