Mixed Media Fun with Decoart Products!

At Creative Artiste this month we are sponsored by Decoart who are offering some fabulous Decoart goodies for the chosen winner of our challenge.
Who are offering one lucky winner this fabulous mixed media starter set!!!



I particularly love a Decoart Challenge as I am at my happiest when playing with their products!
This particular project took many forms for me!
 At first it was painted with layers of Fluid Acrylics and Crackle glaze, which were then buffed with antiquing cream and cold gilding wax.
I added texture paste and chrome ink but it was looking (as a friend said) "Too Frou Frou", for me! So I took a steel brush to it and knocked it back again(as you do!)





I then started again! With a new layer of fluid acrylic. I die cut a fishing net out of card and embossed it with Stampendous embossing powder then ripped it up for texture. I stamped over the heart with Stazon then sprayed a plaster of Paris bandage and placed it on the surface (I picked a number of these up in Lille for .6 of a euro!) When dry I painted over the textured areas and brushed in gold pigment.

I heat embossed some areas with different embossing powders and then added varnish and crackle glaze. Texture paste was added, along with Frantage pieces and also the fabulous liquid glass by Decoart. Once again I added Decoart gold gilding wax to the cracks and edges.

To finish I added an industrial bulb with a hot glue gun and then painted some paper covered wire gold using the luscious Decoart Metallic Gold paint, which I twisted around the filament.

Happy Crafting !
