Mixed media wood panel


Mixed-media-wood-panel

This was one of those projects that started out promising, got pretty ugly somewhere in between, was chucked into the "standstill" pile and then saw the light of day again last weekend. Sounds familiar? *LOL*


I started off with some wrapping tissue on a wood panel, some gesso and liquid acrylics. I stamped some text all over, then added went to work with a stencil, fiber paste and modeling paste. 


I painted the blooms with Silks glaze and added some glass bead medium for more texture. Thought the piece needed more colour so I added a purple colour gelato wash in the background. I finished with PearlEx for an all-over shimmer.

P/s: Come play along with the Purple Pumpkin August Sketch Challenge! You could win $25 worth of yummy goodies! :)

Hi Yvonne! Hope you are having a superb summer! Great work!!
Sorry for the absence, but 2013 has been even worse than 2012... Anyhow, enjoy the blues of Grenada, and have a great vacation, if you can manage!!
All the best!
