Priya here today with a detailed pictorial tutorial for a Mixed media Wall art. Mixed media is always fun and I enjoy a lot creating different textures and I'm showing how to get different textures on your project here today with simple little things from your stash.
Take a look at the final outcome:
Let's start the tutorial:
Step:1 I altered a square shaped MDF board, which actually was a cake base. You can take any size of a board. Here's the base:
Step 2: I gave a thick coat of white heavy gesso on the base. Once it was dry I gave another coat.
Step 3: Next, I created some texture.Here you can see, on the lower part of the board, I glued some crumpled tissue paper and also attached lace.
Step 4: At this point, I created some texture with the help of a stencil on the left side. As you can see my son also helped me in this.
For quick drying, I used the heat tool.
Step 5: Then, on the right side of the lace on upper part, I applied some texture paste and tried some random texture using my quilling comb.
A dotted tool for some more texture here and there.
Step 6: After drying, I started adding embellishments randomly. I added flowers, chipboards, resin and metal embellishments and glued them all with a glue gun.
Step 7: Then I added a few Big and small pearls, Art stones and sprinkled seed beads.
Step 8: Then I started adding colours. Here I used acrylic colours. I mixed Pink and yellow colours to get this colour and at the lower side I added black pearl acrylic colour.
This is how it looked when finished. This photo was taken at night after I finished, so the picture isn't very clear.
Here are a few close ups of the project.
