Believe in Magic


Hi Friends

Sharing a mixed media page for the cover of an altered book inspired by the bright and vibrant mood boards/picture inspiration from some lovely blogs.......... 





I started with thick chipboard and a base layer of gesso.This was followed by a thick layer of texture paste and texture created with the use of a quilling comb, let it dry completely. Have painted randomly with colourArte silks acrylic glazes in Apple blossom, kiwi, sea spray and lemon drop..........


Have used another stencil and texture paste and then sprayed with antique gold spray paint........


hearts are cut with dies from white cardstock, stamped with book print stamp, stencilled with sequin waste and texture paste. The heart in blue is painted with sea spray acrylic glaze .....


The red and golden yellow heart is gessoed, texture added with sequin waste and painted with silks, see the gorgeous effect of silks as these are translucent and show off the embossing and texture perfectly.  I then doodled with 3D paints in pearl white and sunshine yellow.

Twine is colored with black acrylic and gold and wrapped around the panel, sentiment by Tim Holtz and the butterfly is stamped with black archival ink. some rhinestones and lace is added and the panel is mounted on handmade paper.........







a closer look........................
