I am so excited to have been asked to host the Mixed Media Challenge in the Flying Unicorn Forum for August. This is one of my favorite challenges as I love playing with different mediums.
For my project I chose to alter some Creative Embellishments Chipboard.
I started with the Steampunk Frame and Steampunk Butterfly and the light switch cover from my craft room. I covered all 3 pieces with black gesso and let dry.
I started with the lighter blue, then lighter green then dark blue and darker green.. Layer upon layer of color.
While the pieces were drying I grabbed 3 flowers and covered them in black gesso. Dried with a heat gun and then added some silks glaze to them. I also cutoff the green leaves from the back of them.
Once it was dried completely I added more of the silks used on the flowers... It really darkened spots up and gave it the completed look I was hoping to achieve.
This pic shows it in place on my wall.
This is the finished piece along with all supplies I used.
I hope my piece has inspired you to create trying some new techniques and products. Please join us over on the Flying Unicorn Forum for this and many other challenges.
If you have any questions please send me a message.
