Soul Whispers mixed media collage – more Finnabair new goodies

Soul Whispers mixed media collage – more Finnabair new goodies

Hello lovelies,

I’m back with Soul Whispers mixed media collage on balsa wood featuring more Finnabair new goodies! 🙂 

I am so inspired by these new releases from Finnabair that I can’t stop creating… Love, love, love them!!! They are so wonderful to play with and so versatile! Gorgeous colours, wonderful textures, in a word they are AMAZING, my friends!!! You really need to try them to see what I mean. 

To create this mixed media collage I started by covering a piece of balsa wood with a layer of white heavy gesso and when this was dry I randomly spread some of Finn’s NEW Stone Effect paste – Pumice and clear Crackle paste using a silicone brush. Left everything to dry overnight.

In the meanwhile, I created my focal point by impressing a real oak leaf into a piece of paperclay and left it to dry.

Next morning I adhered the clay using 3D gloss gel. Then, I attached a piece of wire that I manipulated to resemble a curly vine. With the help of some more 3D gloss gel, I glued down a few of Finn’s Melange-Art Pebbles and lots of Art Stones, Mini art stones and glass beads. When everything was dry, I started painting using Art Alchemy acrylic paints, diluted rust paste and diluted patina paste.

To highlight all of my texture I dry-brushed the truly spectacular NEW Art Alchemy SPARKS. They are just glorious! These paints are the ultimate highlighter, I’m telling you! 🙂 🙂

I painted the wire and the metal butterfly with another new favourite of mine, the Art Alchemy waxes. I also added some Finnabair black glitter here and there.

I glued down the butterfly with 3D gel and then made some splashes with diluted white gesso and patina paste.
