Hi everyone, Melissa here with a mixed media page for the Dusty Attic January 2017 Mood Board Challenge. This is a photo of my husband taken in Colorado. We were driving cross country,from New York to California, and decided to stop and look at a river.
I was inspired by the blue colors of the mood board. and the blue feathers. I coated a piece of watercolor paper with gesso, the applied some gauze. I put some texture paste on and mixed in some seed beads with it. I applied many layers of different products, mainly watercolors. I also used vintage black and gold glitter, mica flakes in gold and silver, green alcohol ink, turquoise liquid pearls, Lindys Stamp Gang in a mix of teal and purple, micro beads,copper mica powder, and green mica powder.
I prepped the Dusty Attic chipboard with gesso, then painted with watercolors, and topped it with a little glitter, crackle paint, and gold mica powder.
You can see a lot of gold mica powder.
I used some sizzix leaves.
On the edges I used watercolors, Derwent Inktense pencil, and gold mica.
Here's the link to see the challenge:
Thanks so much for looking, and have a great week!
