Creative Artiste #91 March 2023

  ....Welcome to a new challenge at

Creative Artiste is a monthly challenge blog for everyone who likes to mix their media. So, as long as you like to use various mediums on your creations, we'd love to see you enter the challenge.
A big Thank You to everyone who entered the challenge last month. Your projects were all wonderful and our winners have been announced on the blog.
Our theme is always
"Anything Mixed Media Goes"
We have opportunities to be a Guest Designer for all our winners.

My wonderful friend Pam sent me some Distress Watercolour Pencils for Christmas and I used them to create a pretty background for this small canvas, 7"x 5" (17.5 x 12.5cm). Thank you Pam!

I started by giving the canvas a coat of white gesso. Once dry I scribbled some Distress Watercolour Pencils randomly over the canvas. I used Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans, Rustic Wilderness and Crushed Olive. I then blended the colours with water.

I did some third and fourth generation stamping over the canvas and let it dry completely.  Then I dry brushed white gesso over the canvas to knock back the stamping slightly and make everything appear more blended.
Finally for the base I used some texture paste though an AAll & Create stencil #13.

I used some of the resin pieces I'd made with Prima's Clock Faces mould and a pair of wings from the Cogs and Wings mould. I gave all the resin pieces a coat of white gesso.

I then added colour to the resin pieces by painting them using Distress Oxide Inks with water. I used Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans, Squeezed Lemonade and Scattered Straw.
Once they were all dry I added them to the canvas with Prima's Heavy Body Gel.
