Winter wreath

Good evening, today I am sharing with you a winter style mixed media wreath.


It all started with a piece of long raffia and from there my ideas started flowing. I used a jewellery elastic cord to secure the raffia as it's nice and strong.


Then wrapped it with aluminium paper and then with masking tape. With these done I had it ready to add some layers of fabric and lace mixed with Powertex.




From there on I just went mixed media mad and used Sparkle Texture Paste, Asphalt Paste and lots of Finn's products like Micro Beads, Glass Glitter, Graphite Paste, Mica Flakes. Also acrylic paints ... .
For finishing thought the natural dried lotus flower heads would be perfect touch. These are so unique, beautiful.
And of course a little bling for the wreath to make it look more sparkly, I used some of Spellbinders Rhinestones Chain.










All the best,
Kris
