Hey there Peeps and Happy Friday! I’m excited to share with you my first Fine Art Project created for BoBunny. I was so inspired by all the lovely mixed media supplies and patterned papers from Farmers Market. I begged to use a picture my Son and his fiancé took last week while picking apples and it just seemed like a match made in heaven.
To create the background I added a light wash of watered down Gesso to the Farm Fresh patterned paper. Once it dried I cut it into strips and then into smaller squares. Using gel medium I adhered all the pieces down being careful to arrange them in a random pattern. After I had all the background attached I gave it a coat of Brilliant Blue Pearlescents with the ol finger brush smooshing it around and getting it into all the uneven surfaces. After allowing it to dry I gave it a spray with Frost and Bronze Glimmer spray. Additional detail comes from some texture paste and the Brocade Stickable Stencil and the feather created with the Whimsy Stickable Stencil and Frost Glitter Paste.
Inking the edges helps give a defined border and stamping some images from the Rough-It-Up stamp and permanent ink anchors the die cuts and image. These flowers were created with the Farm Fresh paper and treated with the same mixed media supplies, layered with alternate sizes and topped off with blingy accents.
I cut some sweet doilies with the Ornate Doilies Die and added patterned paper and the picture of the kiddos. A little lace softens the arrangement as does the cheesecloth and loopy twine bow. I used the same mixed media supplies to alter the Family chippie and secured it to the arrangement. Last but not least a few sprinkles of Glimmer Spray watered down and flicked on with a paintbrush.
Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
