Good evening sweet friends,

Tonight I’d love to share with you, my newest mixed media canvas called Cherish Yesterday. I have played with more of the NEW wonderful Finnabair and let me tell you, I love them more and more! You can see the full reveal and read about these very special products on the Prima blog here. This time I focused on the Stone Effect paste set and continued to explore the patina paste together with the rust paste and here is the result.cherish yesterday mixed media canvas

To create this small (8 x 8 inch) mixed media canvas, I started by randomly applying a layer of Concrete paste using a silicone brush. When this was dry I spread some Pumice and Limestone paste through a couple of different stencils and left it to dry completely. Next, I gave the entire canvas a coat fo white heavy gesso and dried everything with my heating gun.

I painted the background using two  Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays (green and black) and diluted patina paste (green and blue).

Out of some balsa wood and few lollipop sticks, I created a door that I embellished with pieces of paper clay (made using Prima moulds) and some of Finn’s mechanicals. I collaged some tiny strips of gelli printed paper to create a “peeled off” paint effect and glued down the paper clay pieces with 3D gloss gel.

Next, I painted the paper clay embellishments with Art Alchemy Antique Brilliance wax (Lucky Emerald) using a brush, followed by Patina and Rust paste in successive layers.

To create a “moss-like” effect on the walls and on the clay piece over the door, I added touches of Lindy’s Stamp gang spray and Art Alchemy Metallique green olive.

As a final touch, I added some clear crackle paste, here and there, on the door, to enhance even more the vintage, weathered look.
