Mixed Media Altered Artist Palette

Hey all, welcome to another post for Faith Pocock Craft Studio Ltd.   Today I have a project that has been on my Pinterest to-do list for quite some time.  I first saw these altered artist palettes one night whilst merrily pinning away (as you do) and I have been dying to get my hands dirty with one.  I tracked down some palettes and this is what I created.



I first gave my palette two generous coats of white gesso on both sides and then messed about with a heap of metal filligrees, charms, cogs, resin pieces, metal flowers, resin flowers and a fabric doily.  I played around with the direction and layereing before finally settling on the landscape orientation and the embellie cluster you see below.  Then I took heaps of pics, because, I don't know about you, but once I move them, I am darned if I can ever remember the exact layout I had going.


My next step was to glue everything down using E6000 and give everything a couple of coats of gesso.  Oh no I forgot to mention I also added some texture by using some stencils and the Art Basics Modeling Paste - Opaque Matt.


Whilst I was waithing for this to dry I decided to pick out some sprays and I ended up with the following Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays - Jack in the Pulpit Teal; Sweet Violet Purple Teal; Gossamer Gold; Wisteria Purple blue and lastly Glitz Spritz Blazing Sun.  Below are a selection of photos I have taken at different angles trying to pick up the gorgous colours and the glimmer.   I have also rubbed some gold metalic ink over the raised surfaces and I dry brushed some gesso to the beads and letters....




and here are some glamour pics....

Sweet Love - Layout

Hi readers and welcome to my blog.  Today I have a layout to share with you.  I have created this using the gorgeous Grace collection from Authentique.  This was a design team kit from Faith Pocock Craft Studio.  

I have added some splatters with Lindy's Stamp gang Gossamer Gold and Tibetan Poppy Teal
 I also added some texture using Prima Marketing Art Basic Modelling Paste - Opaque Matt and Crafters Workshop reverse chicken wire stencil
 Flowers and butterfly are from Prima.  I have added some white gesso to shabby and soften them up a little.

 The ruffles were created by sewing three strips of paper 2"x12"

Mixed Media Canvas Board

Hey all, I have a mixed media re-do to share with you all today.  Sometime last year I had a go at doing a mixed media canvas.  You can see the post for this here http://www.uniquescrappiness.com/2015/07/my-mixed-media-fail.html

I actually don't have a walk through for you today, or sadly, any process pics of my latest attempt.  I pretty much did exactly the same thing as in my previous attempt, with one exception....I painted everything with white gesso instead of black.   I have also used much the same embellishments and metal filligrees in both canvases.   So here are my pics...




To get the lovely soft colours, I have used the following sprays....
Shabby Turbine Teal
Autumn Crimson Maple
Incandescant Copper
and Blazing Sun

These sprays are available in the following kits
Industrial Chic
Autumn Leaves
and Autumn Leaves SideKick

Here are my two canvases side by side...
