Mixed Media Altered Frame

Hello my dear friends...

It's been a while since I posted. Was not keeping well and now recovering gradually. I altered an old frame, inspired by some gorgeous moodboards this month with some lovely pastel shades and pretty lavender and turquoise.(links at the end of post). 

What a wonderful refreshment it was!!
Had an awesome time working on this. It was an old frame in antique bronze color that I painted with black gesso all over, followed by highlights with white gesso and prima metallic acrylic paints - "ancient coin" and "light Patina".
Next I covered the center part with a patterned cardstock that I sprayed with Lindy's and distress stain, followed by some stamping. 
Then came embellishments and flowers. After arranging them all, I applied some strokes of white gesso and added more highlights with finnabair opal magic wax - "Royal Robes". Love the shade!
I also added some moss and torn laces for a shabby chic look.
Some detailed pictures..

Loved the final outcome and it goes straight on my living room gallery wall. Soon will post some pictures once the gallery wall is all done.

With this work I participate to:

Thank you so much for your interest and I hope you got inspired. 
Stay tuned.. loads of love!!

Mixed Media Canvas 

"Paradise Found"

Feels good to be back with a new post after quite a long gap. House shifting kept me busy since the last few weeks and finally got settled.. huh!! So relaxing it is to see myself resuming onto my blog.. :)
A sand and sea canvas inspired by the Mixed Media Warriors July Moodboard and it's a bit more special as it goes for their DT Call as well :)

This is one theme that never looses it's charm. The sand and sea is always a pleasure to work on. I started on with some texture using lots of gesso, muslin and art stones. Next I added some beachy hues with Lindy's sprays followed by more of gesso. Added some shells and other few embellishments from my stash. I also used some moss for a bit of natural element in my project. Some hints of pink from the Moodboard and more of gesso till I found my paradise :)
I was happy with the final outcome. Some detailed pictures..

And there it goes as a challenge + DT Call submission to the Mixed Media Warriors July Challenge

Hope you enjoyed and got inspired.. see you again very soon. Have a great week ahead!!

Patina Altered Box

Hi there...
This weekend I finally got to work with my Patina Pastes and IOD paper clay that I had been waiting to start with.
Had a great time altering this wooden box.

The IOD paper clay is super smooth and flexible. Loved making that rose bunch.. it was flawless. 
The box that I used is a wooden one which I gessoed after adding the resin frame and clay work, followed by the amazing Patina Pastes that can just do the magic and transform objects into beautiful pieces.
With this project Is enter to:
