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.

Hello Sweeties,

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


After priming the canvas board with white gesso, I covered it with paper paste, I also added randomly white crackle paste. I let it dry naturally to allow the crackle to appear.


In the meantime, I primed all the chipboards with white gesso. I embossed the Dandelion with white EP. Then, I added turquoise and silver waxes. 


I covered the Flowering Vine with clear crackle paste and let dry naturally. I embossed the Geo Panel #3 with silver EP. 


I used green wax to color the Wheat #3, the Foliage #25, and the Wildflower#4 with a touch of silver. For the Wheat #2 and the Foliage #23, I used Midnight, Cobalt, and silver waxes.


I used different shades of blue and turquoise Magical to color the background and used the same colors to paint the Flowering Vines. 


When everything was glued, I added Silver and Midnight waxes to the edges of the canvas and the crackles. To finish, I added some silver glitter to add some sparkle.

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.

Cigar Box - Pascale B Scrap - Mixed Media

Hello Sweeties,

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


I glued all the elements to build the box. When done, I primed it with two layers of white gesso. I added a design with the Ledger stencil and light modeling paste to the top and the sides.


I selected different gears in size and shape and used a 3D gel to glue them to the box. When the gel was dry, I primed all the gears and the Rose leaves from the Alice collection with white gesso. 


When the gesso was completely dry, I added brown paint with a lot of water to keep it neutral. Then I added a few flowers which I also painted.


To finish the composition, I just added metallic waxes.

Anne-Marie layout by Pascale B Scrap

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a vintage layout with a photo of one of my great aunts.


To begin, I primed the background with Clear Gesso. Next, I added a design with Floral #2 Stencil and Pearl Icing paste. When the paste was dry, I added some brown and black Distress inks to make the design pop up. 


I covered the Ornat Circle #2 with embossing powder that I was careful not to melt down completely to obtain a non-even surface. 


I primed all the chipboards I have selected with white gesso. Then I simply distressed the edges with black and brown inks. 


I attached a few ephemera under the photo, and then I made a cluster with Spring Bloom #3, Wildflower #4, Foliage #25, and a couple Poppy Heads. I added a few white flowers to the composition which  I altered with Distress inks as they were too white. 


I also included a Pocket Watch to remind the one concealed in her pocket. In the photo, we can definitely make out the chain. 


To finish, I splattered the background with glitter mixed with gel medium and water.
