Below is my project that I have created using the gorgeous Timeless Collection from 13@rts as well as the Blue Matte Paint, Pearl Navy Blue Mist, 13@rts Gesso and Modeling Paste.
"Our Time Together"Some close ups...
Gorgeous flowers are from Prima and Petaloo, chipboard cogs are 2Crafty and the metal cogs from Prima. Metal adornments are from the Flying Unicorn which I have touched up using Lindy' s Stamp Gang Grab a Guy Gold mist and Luminarte Silks Acrylic Glaze - Solar Gold
Ooops I even got some mist on my photo...oh well all part of the process :))
Here is a few tips from me when creating a mixed media type project.
1. When it comes to masking, don’t always think you have to use gesso or modelling paste. In this layout I have used the 13 arts Matte Blue paint along with a makeup sponge over a stencil to create a different effect. Add some doodling around the shapes to make them stand out.
2. To create a water colour effect on the background of your project, spray your favourite 13 arts mist on a plastic bag, scrunch the bag up and randomly press it down on your background.
3. Highlight your embellishments using your mist. Take the top off your mist bottle, using a fine paint brush paint around your embellishments to create a shadow effect.
