Guest Designer: Pascale B.

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Mixed Media Place blog where I've been inviting as a guest designer. 


I worked with a photomontage I made a while ago inspired by Almayer's Folie from Magritte.

I began my project by gluing a piece of the Solar paper tissue with Soft Matte Gel. When dry, I covered it with clear gesso. I mixed some Frozen Lake mica powder with 3D Gloss gel to make a paste. I used this paste along with the Golden Dust Jewel paste and a stencil to add a design. 

When everything was dry, I colored the background with different liquid acrylic paints to match the colors of the photo. I mixed Prussian Blue, Ultramarine, and Violet to obtain the right shade of blue. For the sun part, I worked with True Yellow, Tiger Orange, and a hint of Carmine. 

Before gluing all the embellishments, I primed the resin elements with Black gesso and the metallic elements with clear gesso. To color the elements, I used waxes: the pipes with Charcoal Black wax, the frame with White Gold, and the flowers with Old Denim and Peacock.

Next, I applied Vintage Gold over everything but I was careful to give the impression of the light coming from the yellow part of the panel. 

To finish, I added glass glitter and glitter. 

Thank you for joining me here today!

Pascale B.
