Sharing with you a mixed media 8" x 8" canvas board. I wished for elegance, sparkle (a good deal of sparkle!) and yet something easy to pull off and also something happy. In general I am not a full glimmer fan but those dull after dull days in Ireland made me to do that. Honestly!
Here are the simple steps what I did - at first I covered the board with lace using Matte Gel, painted it golden with acrylics and went over with Antiquing Wax to cool that gold down a bit. Then mixed glitter with High Gloss Varnish to give some slight glossy-sparkle at the back, just a gentle touch. From there on used two doily stencils plus four different Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Pastes. As you can see I used only a couple of embellishments. I managed to find the matching colour frame from my stash to one of the Texture Paste used, fabulous! And I left the wooden doily as it is so that the eyes could rest from all the powering sparkle. Decided to glue on a handful of sparkly beads too yesterday late evening to represent that happiness I was after.
