Good Morning all you lovely crafters out there!
Saloni here with a new inspirational post today !! Today I have a Mixed media altered project again.
Why should the inside of your diary just be filled with pretty art, transform your diary cover with mixed media and simple techniques!
So, here's how it looked after all the hard work:
To begin with, I have applied a thick coat of heavy gesso and primed the surface. Next, I applied the fiber texture paste to it. To add some more texture, I have used a brick stencil with texture paste. Once dry, I started adding colours to it. To keep it simple, I have used just different shades of blue with a hint of white. It's such a beautiful colour strikingly soft yet stands out pretty loud. Further to embellish the diary, I have adhered some flowers, moss, metal charms. In the end , I have added a few art stones, frosting powder & created white splatter with watered down white gesso.
