Always amazed by Athanasia art!
Beside her amazing mixed media skills we also adore her choice of the photograph.
Hello MMP friends! I had this beautiful photo for a while and couldn't decide what to do with it, until now. I love the black balloon and the darkness of this photo that creates emotions of hope and sadness at the same time.
For this project I used papers, stickers, stamps and stencil from 7 Dots Studio Soulmates, Yuletide and Lost & Found collections. I also used 2Crafty Chipboard pieces and ColourArte silks and Primary Elements to color the composition.
First I applied white heavy gesso on the canvas. When it was dry, I used the stencil (by Yuletide collection) with the Celedin and Honey Amber silks. They dry pretty quickly. Then I made some stamps and glued the papers. The background work was done already.
Next thing to do was to alter the chipboards. I used three shades of LSG embossing powders, blue, grey and black. After I placed them in composition, I glued the stickers and the rest of the embellishments.
One thing I love to do often in my projects is to use wire in different ways. This time I tied it on a button and rumpled the edges to create a messy look. I really like the effect and dimension it gives at the composition.
I also like to use paper clips even I'm working on a canvas. I think they are so cute to use in any kind of project, don't you think?
As final touches I spread some of the Primary Elements blue shades here and there and sprayed water. It's the most fun thing to do before I finish my project :)
That was all for today! Until next time, have a lovely crafty day!
