Today, we tried our hand at the July Moodboard Challenge at Mixed Media Place
Isn’t this board amazing? We simply loved it!
We were inspired by the blue and pink shades, lights, flower, clouds and the word happy.
We decided to create a watch box and use various mediums. For this project we chose the Colour Arte Products.
To begin with, we layered some paper scraps onto our box and adhered them with mod podge. We next added some dry volt tape and plaster bandage in a similar manner. Once dry we gave the complete box a layer of watered down gesso in order to create one single surface over our layers. We added some sand texture randomly for more texture.
We then arranged all our embellishments from our stash- shells, beads, flower, pearls, etc…, and stuck them with tacky glue and covered them all with gesso for a white base.
Next, we started adding colour using Primary elements pigments- Baby’s Breath, Rose Bud and Cool Water. Once we were happy with the shades on all sides, we dabbed some Silks- Pink Azalea and African Jade randomly to add some more colour and highlight our texture. Next, using black archival ink we stamped randomly using Prima Bubbles and Peek-a-boo Messy Lines.
In the end, to highlight the sand texture we went over with Inka gold- Magenta, Aquamarine and Silver.
We love this box as our inspirations are clearly visible- the colours with a cloudy effect, the shimmer and specs in the form of light, the flower as our embellishment and happiness just creating and seeing it :-)!
