Mysterious Box Series - Maria Lillepruun

Hello, dear mixed media friends! 
Today this is Maria Lillepruun on blog. Recently, I have received a mystery box full of beautiful art goodies from the Mixed Media Place store! This was a very interesting challenge! I played with the media and embellishments around, trying to incorporate THEM ALL in one curious project. This was fun! Finally, I decided to make a wall decoration on a round base that was included in my box. 

I primed the base with black gesso, because I wante the final work to look dark. Then I covered the primed base with the decorative paper using the soft gloss gel. 

After that, I applied a mix of the modelling paste and the texture paste with sand through a beautiful "Oriental Wall" stencil, and let it dry.

When the texture was dry, I colored it with liquid acrylics and added shimmer with dry mica powders.
Then I glued on all the decorations: colored chipboard, metallic embellishments, artificial plants and moss, real amethysts, art pebbles... And colored them all slightly with distress ink, alcohol inks and Finnabair´s waxes. This process blended them all together.

Finally, I added some decorative glass beads as toppings and whte gesso splatter.

I invite you to view the whole process. I filmed it all together with a short mystery box overview in the very begining of the video.

Thank you for your attention!

Hourglass ATC by Marina Ignatova

Hi friends!
I have again АТС for you! I love small forms, you can quickly do something interesting and try new techniques. So I came up with the idea to make volumetric cards in the form of an hourglass.

First, I prepared rectangles of bound cardboard. Glued them together and added molds. The shape of a watch is now formed. Then did an imitation of the sand by means of art stones and soft gloss gel.
I wanted to make a mystical space of the АТС. So I added moons, months, and stars.

Next, the painting. 3-4 colors of acrylic paints, texture with different colors of waxes.

In the end, I added a chipboard and some metal embellishments. Bending the metal lettering was the hardest part, but I managed it)))

Below you can see my video tutorial:

Inspirations, dear! Hugs, Marina
