Mixed Media Canvas
Back today with an inspirational work based on Mixed Media Art and More Than Words challenge moodboards. I got really fascinated by forest theme and grunge style of MMA and MTW respectively, and came up with a canvas incorporating both the elements.
Coming on to the process.. I started off with Finnabair crackle paste as the base. Once the crackle paste dried, I worked with the darkest shade of Finnabair Rust Effect paste set. I loved the grungy effect it brought to the whole project. Next I arranged all of the stuff randomly.. couple of old brushes, flowers, leaves, metal objects, wooden scraps, art stones, some chipboard shapes from Dusty attic and Wycinanka, moss, sisal and a resin butterfly from Prima that automatically stood out as a focal point. All that I stuck with Finnabair 3d gloss gel, followed by coverage of Finnabair heavy white gesso. Then I added the much awaited green to whole of the loaded center using Lindy's spray (Gator Gumbo Olive) and Ranger distress spray stains (Twisted Citron).
Added lots of art stones and some micro beads. Also I gave a touch of Finnabair wax (Bronze age). Added some word power with Till Holtz small talks. I was happy with the result and loved the greens.. I could actually smell the forest 🌳
