Today I am here to share my inspiration project for Words & Paintery October Challenge which is having a gorgeous color palette. Also this is my entry for Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo October Challenge where the theme is to use watercolors.
I created a mixed media panel and my focal point, the wings, are painted in watercolors and fussy cut.
I started off with a thick cardboard panel which I took out from an old unused photo frame. Applied white gesso all over and then I decoupaged it with a scripted tissue paper. I focused on my background alot as I was not using many embellishments on this project and wanted my background to be interesting. I then applied more of gesso on the decoupaged background and then did some stenciling(Tim Holtz) using modelling paste(Prima). I used brick pattern.
The next step was applying colors. I used spray and magical pigment powder from Lindy's. Once I was satisfied with the amount of colors on my background, I started to arrange the embellishments. I used some Finnabair embellishments and a key from my stash. I applied Finnabair wax (vintage gold) on all of the metal embellishments to make them all synchronise and come together.
Finally some white splashes with gesso and finished it with a quote strip (Tim Holtz).
Some detailed pictures..
