Hello arty -crafty friends!!
Ashwini Vinayraj here. Today I have a Moroccan style wall decor to share with you. Marble Mosaic and cracking is the idea behind this piece of art and this is my favorite one as it is easy to make with pieces of MDF boards.
I have used MDF boards and a lot of creative elements from the store. It was a quick decision to create this style of home decor and to explore with more different mediums and colors.
What can be more delighting than creating a handmade decor of your own for your home or to gift someone special. Here is a stunning piece of art merging different techniques.
Let’s proceed with the making:
Here, I have selected two MDF square boards. One measuring 12″by 12″ and the other 8″by 8″.
First, I have worked on the larger board. Applied a good coat of Deep Sea Blue chalk paint. With a spatula I have spread Mixed Media Paste over the stencil to create a pattern on all the sides for a frame like look on the edges.
Next, on the smaller board I have given a good coat of Misty Rose chalk paint.
On this, I brushed a good amount of one step Crackle medium. Left it for almost an hour to dry on its own. I have lapped it over with white chalk paint. As I started to stroke down the paint, beautiful cracks began to appear. Dabbed the edges with the rose paint again.
Using silicon glue I have adhered the smaller MDF piece over the larger MDF piece. Now this looks really good.
As the concept is wall decor, I had lots of choice of selecting decoupage papers.
So used up the kitchen concept. I cut down the paper to fit my need in between the center panel. Used white Pearl Drops on the edges. The dots are quite small, will be sharing a clear image in random pictures below.
Here, as I see a kitchen theme running along with floral. My mind stared hopping towards the colorful flowers on the corner of my crafting table. So I decided to add these pretty flowers along with some beautiful Iced Slate Metal Micro beads. Glued down these with Heavy Gel Medium. So this is how it looked finally.
