Hi everyone! Melissa here, with a new design team project for the amazing Shimmerz Paints, I love their rich texture and colors!
To make this I applied white gesso to the 5x7 canvas, and the chipboard pieces. I stenciled on Prima Platinum Texture Paste with a spatula. I placed all the items on, and started painting.
I kept adding things, and more layers of paint and mica powder. A lot of the things are from Reneabouquets.
To add visual interest I added micro beads, seed beads, glass glitter ,gold leaf,glass beads, pearls, rhinestones, glass hearts,sequins,tulle,lace, iridescent wrapping paper, feathers from my yard,pressed and dried flowers, Tim Holtz rub ons, a flower from Reneabouquets,and bling and from my stash.The fussy cut pieces are from Graphic 45.Most of the things are glued on individually with Glossy Accents.
On the chipboard frame I used Olive U Truly Inklingz, and Run Forest Run Shimmerz.The flowers are Magenta Shimmerz, topped with Honeymoon, Inklingz.
I used the same colors on the rest of the canvas, along with Penny 4 Your Thoughts, Imperial Amethyst, Pink- A -Boo, and Blue My Mind Inklingz, and Peacock's Plume Shimmerz.
All the gold is mica powder, rubbed on the edges and raised areas.
Thank you so much for looking!
