A Decoart Tray to Brighten Your Day!

This month at Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge we have a fabulous new sponsor DECOART a company with a huge range of products for mixed media artists.

I was really delighted to be able to use my Decoart stash for this project and boy did I use a lot of it!

I began by using Decoart gesso to cover a wooden tray. I then used Decoart Fluid media Acrylic paints to cover it in patches. I knocked this back with Decoart tinting base and then added more colour on top. I stenciled through punchinella with more paint to add patches of dots.
I then began mark making using a credit card and different sizes of lids, which were dipped in the paint.
I added washi tape and pen marks and doodles in both black and white pen and also Decoart Metallic paint and glitter paint.
I sprayed Decoart Shimmer Mists in pink and yellow and then finished with drips of carbon black fluid media paint.
The techniques were ones that a learnt at a Kate Crane Workshop at the Ministry of Mixology!
When I had finished I sprayed the whole thing with Decoart Americana Varnish and added a black vinyl decal which I cut on my Silhouette Cameo machine.
I am using the tray to store my Decoart Glitter paints!
Happy Crafting,
