I Can See Clearly Now

Happy New Year to all, Hope you had a fantastic Christmas and you are ready for 2020. I have a new project for you, a mixed media frame.

I have found the base on my own. I must have had it for sometime now as I don’t even remember where it is from sadly, but I’m sure you can find something similar to use.

Here are few step by step pictures:

Firstly white gesso the whole frame. I used 13arts rose stencil to add texture.

I used a spray of chipboard roses from Creative Embellishments on the corner of my frame. I also use delicate mdf feather from Hobbilicious. When all adhered (use gel medium) cover all again with a white gesso.

I added some concrete paint by Fabrika Decoru to add more texture. Just dab the paint .

When dry , I used Shabby Velour paint by Fabrika Dekoru in two different shades of lilac, berry mousse and heather. Dab the paint with your brush. Cover the whole frame.

When dry I added some drops of black spray in corner and sprayed with water and let it run all over the project by tipping the frame. When dry… I dried brushed it with a white gesso.

I added some crystal topping and silver wax to enhance the texture on the background. I splattered my frame with black gesso.

To embellish, I added 3 handmade foamiran flowers.

I placed a picture on some cardboard to lift it up and adhered on some sisal. Finally … Sentiment from Hobbilicious.

Hope you enjoyed my first project this year. Happy Crafting. Kasia X
