Layout with Mixed Media Paste

Hello everyone Pooja here,

I am back again with  another creation of mine made with Mixed Media paste and Little Birdie’s one step Crackle Medium. This is totally an experiment for me where I worked with both products to create my background. This is also my first experience with Little Birdie’s Crackle Medium, but I am totally happy with the outcome.

Have a look at what I created ….

Process:

To begin, I applied Mixed Media paste on a hard board. Before application, I diluted this paste with little bit of water.

2. Then, I used a stencil to form a pattern with the mixed media paste and you can  see how perfectly it worked. Thereafter I  painted the blank spaces, (mostly where I did not do stenciling) with Moda- burgundy paint.

3. I desperately wanted to try out the Crackle Medium, so I decided to use this first only on the part that I had painted. I applied Crackle Medium on that part  after it was a little dry. On top of it, I applied white acrylic paint and soon after,  cracks started to appear.  I was so thrilled with the results that I decided to  create the entire background with it.

For the remaining background I used Slate Mixed media paste and Chalk Paint.

4. Applied Crackle Medium after it was dry and topped it with white acrylic paint.

It looked like this after I was done with these steps….

I used different shades of spray paints (red, blue, brown,black) to coordinate with the colors of  the image at the center.

Next, I just added flowers and embellishments around my focal image and wrapped a twine as you can see in the final image. Also used Mixed Media paste on the edges and on top to create a snowy look!

Have a look

Hope you liked my creation.

Feels nice to hear from all of you, so drop me a line about how you liked it.

Thank you for being with us

Pooja
