rusted rose mix media canvas

 

 

Hello, everyone!

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…

 

 

Supplies Used:

  • Canvas Pad
  • Papericious white crackle paste
  • Papericious lattice chipboard
  • Finnabair black gesso
  • Finnabair white sand texture paste
  • Finnabair 3D gloss gel
  • Finnabair art alchemy metallic paints in shade – plum preserves, steampunk copper, ancient coin
  • 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.

Mini Embroidery Hoop Rose Quartz Layout

Hello everybody,

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.

Watercolored Mix Media Tags

Hello everyone,

Today I have two mix media tags to share, I have been crafting for a couple of years now but my crafting supplies were always limited to my requirements until I started blogging and since then started hoarding craft supplies, but even now I try to create using minimal products and get the best out of what I have. Today I have these two simple tags that I created using stuff from my stash and painted it with watercolors and coffee!

Supplies used:

  • Papericious white gesso
  • Fabric lace
  • Prima Art basics 3D gloss gel by Finnabair
  • Micro mini beads
  • Papericious Moroccan lattice chipboard
  • Flat back pearls
  • Watercolors
  • Papericious Crystal clear powder by Rajni Chawla
  • Papericious Frosting powder by Rajni Chawla




The tags measure 6″ by 3″. I started off by priming my tag with gesso and adhered the fabric lace on one side of the tag while it was still wet. I also stenciled some brick wall texture on the other side using my homemade texture paste (because I ran out of modeling paste, the texture is barely visible because it flattened after drying with the heat tool since the consistency of the texture paste I made was a bit too gloopy). Then I adhered my chipboard pieces using the 3D gloss gel.

The flowers are made using Iris paper. After arranging the flowers, I took some 3D gloss gel and applied it along with the micro mini beads and also stuck some flat back pearls in different sizes and covered everything with gesso and dried it completely. For coloring, I chose different shades of blue color. I started by spraying the tag with water and dropped the colors wherever I needed using my watercolor brush, I started coloring with the lighter shades slowly intensifying the color with the darker shades and kept spraying water in between to spread the colors,  I colored the edges with black to darken the corners. Once I was happy with the coloring I dried it and dry brushed with white gesso to highlight the textures and elements and lastly, I brushed some clear drying glue on my chipboard pieces and the flower centers and dusted the chipboard pieces with crystal clear glitter and the flower centers with frosting powder and heat set it. The sentiments are handwritten.

 

Here is my second tag,

Supplies used:

  • Papericious white gesso
  • Prima Art extravagance Texture paste white sand by Finnabair
  • Prima clear stamps- crackle by Finnabair
  • Prima Art basics 3D gloss gel by Finnabair
  • Papericious Moroccan lattice chipboard
  • Prima art alchemy metallic paint – steampunk copper by Finnabair
  • Flat back pearls
  • Mulberry flowers
  • Coffee( for painting)
  • Papericious crystal clear powder by Rajni Chawla
  • Distress ink -vintage photo
  • Black archival inkpad




For this tag, I created a rustic distressed wood pattern. For that, i took a piece of paper and trimmed it to the size of my tag and ripped the paper in half and cut half inch wide strips of it. Then using a blending tool I blended some distress ink in shade vintage photo on the paper strips and also distressed the edges and adhered it to my tag base. Now I took the sand texture paste and applied on the bottom half of my tag and also created some texture with gesso. After drying it, I lightly brushed gesso on the upper part and covered the bottom part fully with gesso.

To create the wood grains, I started blending the same shade of distress ink on the paper strips, now the color appears darker and opaque on the places I brushed gesso creating the pattern like wood grains. For painting, I used a mixture of coffee and water I have not used any other paints to paint it. I made the coffee mixture very dark by using very less water, I sprayed the tag with water and started painting. Since the coffee mixture was very dark I adjusted the color intensity by spraying more water wherever I wanted the color to be light. After drying I highlighted the textures by dry brushing with gesso and I used the crackle stamp and stamped with black archival at random places, I also added some spritz of gesso. The flatback pearls are painted with art alchemy metallic paint in shade steampunk copper and highlighted with gesso. The chipboard element is dusted with crystal clear powder and the sentiment here again is handwritten.

Rose Quartz Shabby Chic Card

Hello everyone,

Today I have some inspiration to share using the rose quartz collection from Prima. I personally really like this paper collection from prima the papers have beautiful patterns and I absolutely love the colour palette of pink, black and grey. The papers are great for making scrapbook and mix media layouts,  I have made a shabby chic card which looks very  “mix media like” and covered everything in tons of glitter.




The total card measures 6″ by 6″. I have ripped and torn the edges of my pattern papers and inked them black archival and layered them on my card base. I used the old script stamp from mudra and stamped the pattern papers randomly.

I have used a combination of my handmade flowers and prima flowers from the rose quartz collection, I have covered the flowers with crystal clear glitter and added the frosting powder on the edges. I have fussy cut the feathers from a pattern paper from the same paper pad and added crystal clear glitter on them from papericious. I stamped and fussy cut some tiny flowers from the botanical blooms stamp set from mudra and stuck them to fill any gaps. The small resin frame was primed with white gesso and highlighted very lightly with prima art alchemy wax in white gold. Lastly, I added some spritz of white gesso.

Other materials used are: fake white grass, white fabric lace, die cut leaves, wire pollens, foam tape, black archival ink pad.




Hope you liked my creation, Thank You for stopping by!
