A cabinet card mixed media collage is what I would like to share with you tonight!
Spraying, splattering, stamping and working with collage elements can be sooooo much FUN!!! 🙂
For this piece I wanted a more vintage look, but couldn’t resist to bring in some teal and turquoise (can’t stop using them, they just make me happy!).
I started by priming a mount board with white gesso. After it was dry, I created some pattern with a Finnabair stencil using again the Vaseline resist technique (if you are interested to find out how it works, I have a post about it here) and then, I began spraying with the gorgeous Radiant Rain from ColourArte (I used Namorado, Autumn Leaf, Seafoam and Teal Zircon). Added some stamping, then toned down a bit the colours, here and there, with extra heavy white gesso applied with a sponge.
For the next step and some extra texture I applied heavy modeling paste through a stencil (Hexagons from The Crafter’s Workshop) and while wet, I sprinkled Finnabair Micro Beads in Bronze and Splash. When the modelling paste was dry I appplied with my fingers some clear acrylic glaze medium from ColourArte and dry brushed Primary Elements Artist Pigments in Beachouse Blue and vintage Mint – LUSCIOUS!!! 🙂 At this point I also added some Donna Salazar mix’d media inx (Peridot).
I then started creating my composition adding collage elements, lace, buttons, washi tape and some mechanicals from Finnabair.
I ended with some splatters and… TADA!! Done!
Hope you like it!
