Today i'm here with a little mixed media piece i made out of an old photoframe i had laying around. I used these cool products from random arts shop:
I took the frame and put the pieces on it the way i like it. I played around a bit because i dont know up front what will look best. Then i covered everything in heavy gesso. Not everything needed to be well covered because i was going to use dark colours.
Once that was dry i painted it in a dark blue colour. I mixed blue and black to get the shade i wanted. Then i went over with, brown, purple, metallic turkois, lindy's spray, some waxes and rust pastes. I kept going back to it untill i was happy with the result, so i gave it multiple layers of each colour over and over again. That will give you more deapth. The waxes i put on last, to give it a nice finishing touch.
