Hold on tight to your Dreams - Pascale B Scrap - Mixed Media panel

Hello Sweeties,

Today, I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a new mixed-media panel. I used a photo from @ArtHouseWhimsy.


First I glued some collage paper on the canvas board with soft gel. I added a design with the stencil and 3D Gloss Gel. Then I primed everything with diluted white gesso to blend everything together. 


When everything was dry, I painted the background with a purple liquid acrylic paint. When dry, I dry brush the whole background with white gesso to tone down the color and highlight the designs.


I primed all the chipboards I've selected with white gesso.  I used the mate Sage wax to color the Rose Leaves and the Leaves #5 with a tiny bit of Honey wax. 


I used the Honey wax to color the Botanic Mix #6, the Mini Birdhouse, and the Wheat #2. To add some depth I add Black gold wax on the edge of the Birdhouse and the Wheat #2.


I started the composition with the flowers - the biggest elements -  then added the chipboards. When everything was to my liking, I added shadows around the elements of the composition with black and brown liquid acrylic paints to add some depth. 


To finish, I add gold glitter.

Hello Sweeties,

Today, I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a mixed-media canvas.


First, I primed the canvas with white gesso. When done, I covered the background with paper and light modeling pastes to add more interest. Then I added a design with the Dots Stencil and white crackle paste. I let it dry naturally to allow the crackles to appear.


I primed all the chipboard with white gesso. I glued a piece of paper on the Jigsaw Pieces, then covered them with clear crackle paste.


I built my composition to my linking starting with the Jigsaw pieces, then I add the biggest elements such as the Flower Buds #1 and the Spring Blooms #3.


Next, I added the Dandelions and I finished with the Poppy Heads. 


When everything was completely dry, I added some color with black and brown liquid acrylic paints and a lot of water.

Shine Brightly - Mixed Media canvas - Pascale B

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a new canvas. 


First I primed the canvas with white gesso, then added a design with the Fosiilised Stencil and modeling paste. When the modeling paste was completely dry, I covered the whole canvas with clear and white crackle paste, I was careful to remove all excess of the crackle pastes to allow the design to show. I let it dry naturally to allow the crackle to appear.


I painted the canvas with coral and Prussian blue liquid acrylic paints when the pastes were dry. 


I primed all the chipboards with white gesso. For the Floral Corners, I decided to use only copper, Firebird, and honey waxes.


I painted the Wildflowers #3 with the same colors of liquid acrylic paints I used for the background. For the Tea Leaves and the Mini Foliage #5, I used a combination of liquid acrylic paints and waxes.


I colored the flowers with diluted coral paint and distressed the edges with brown Distress ink.  


To finish, I added some gold and copper glitters.

Gnomes Garden Tag - Pascale B Scrap

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a tag. 


I selected a medium size tag from the Tag Medley set. I've primed the tag with white gesso before adding some designs to the background. I used the River Stone stencil with the Graphite paste to add the first design like a small path. Then, I added the second design with the Flourish stencil and light modeling paste. When dry, I painted the background with black and brown for the path, and green for the forest background.
I primed all the chipboards I've selected with white gesso as well. Then, I painted them with different acrylic paints.


The Gnome was painted with carmin, brown and black paint. I used brown and black paints to color the small Fairy Door #1 and black and white for the stone. 


For the Grass Cluster #1, I used green and purple. I added a touch of Unicorn paste to add some fun.


I paint the head of the Toadstool Border with carmin and the grass with green paints.


When everything was to my taste, I glued everything together.

Sea Life Mixed media Panel - Pascale B

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a mixed-media panel inspired by the sea life.


First I primed my canvas board with black gesso. I added two designs. The first one with the River Stone Stencel and gold paste to represent the sea floor, and the Second with the Confetti #2 Stencil and Ice Crushed Jewel paste for the bubbles.


I also primed the chipboard with black gesso except for the Coral Elements. I covered the latter with a light modeling paste. With my spatula, I made some peaks to give some dimension to the coral.


Next, I covered all the cogs I've selected from the Jumbo Cogs #2 and Mini Cogs #2 sets with Rust Effect Pastes. 


I glued all the elements of the composition with a 3D gel except the Marine Mechanicals Fish. I selected different green, turquoise, and yellow waxes to color the Ocean Elements I've chosen.


For the Coral Mixed, I chose red and coral waxes. I highlighted all the elements with gold and silver waxes. 


I used different shades of blue and turquoise to color the fish. I highlighted the details with metallic waxes. When Happy, I glued the fish.
