Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by the blog, i’ve been meaning to set one up for the longest time but never really came around to it. The-Desi-Crafter will be my online crafting escapades journal 🙂
For the first post i’ll start off with the latest mixed media on canvas project that I completed. I started off by creating a layered vintage look with acrylic paints in pinks, magenta and white. Once i was satisfied with the background look i opened up my treasure stash of trimmings and findings and played around a bit. The central piece is the glass bottle, I had been a little under the weather the past week and this mixed media project was just what the doctor ordered 🙂 It took a while, as i played around with bits and bobs and once everything looked in place, each piece was stuck down and covered nicely with white Gesso. I love the raw texture that Gesso provides to pieces like these. Also on the canvas are silicone butterflies that i made using my favorite butterfly mold and a exquisite gold metal elephant that fell off an old shoe! The project was completed by a light layer of dry brushing with acrylic paints in magenta, pink and metallic gold.
