Mixed Media Board by Lesley

Hey peeps. Lesley here with a mixed media board for you.

So loving the new "Word Elements"..........and i knew i had to create a piece where i could incorporate one. This is what i made........


I started by priming a 9"x12" board with gesso.

Next i took some water reactive paint in various shades of brown, and added them to the board adding some water as i went. Once i was happy with the coverage, i heat dried it.


I used some green paint a stencil for the lines down the centre of the board.


I then applied a few rub-ons to some areas.


I stamped onto some tissue paper and glued it down with some matt medium.


Next i added a torn strip of handmade paper.

Then, it was onto adding my craft parts. I used the frame of an arched ATC for my girls to sit on.
And the word elements sat on top. I added a little charm.


Underneath, i added a rose with leafy vines, and added a touch of gold wax to finish.


Thanks for reading.
L.xx
