Mystic mini box

Hello everyone, Pooja here!!
Hope you had a great weekend and are ready for a Monday inspiration
Let's begin .... Created this mini  mystic box  the color's and the composition I have created to keep in my mind mixed Media and art and mixed media  warriors  mood board  it's totally my type of colours,I liked to work on this kind of theme nature, mystic,forest, rastic,trees
Hope you will enjoying my my post

  1. I did some stencil work with 2 in 1 Mixed Media Paste on the lid of a small old box. Pasted some natives of chipboard first.

2. I pasted some old pieces from a toy, Little Birdie wing chipboard, heart shape and other little things to built some dimensional layers.

3. Applied  Grainy Paste after applying gesso. I sprinkled Texture Sand randomly when grainy paste was still wet.

4. Adhered Mixed Media Texture Sand and Texture Stones with gel medium  where I wanted them in my project. It helped me to add extra texture and increased the beauty of your project.

After everything was dry, I used Mont Marte  2 Season acrylic paints for my base. I mixed green with black to create a dark  tone of green, after that I used layers of colours to make it lighter. Used a  tone of brown, yellow, white and green to make it lighter.

To give it  a little shine, I used Lime Crush Tinted Metallic paint and Tawny Glint with a light hand on top of it.

Used glitters, small beads, shiny stones to make it more beautiful
Here are some more pics of the final project

I hope you find my post interesting and useful. Stay tuned for more inspirational posts

upcycle tray in to wall hanging

Hello everyone, Pooja here
Today I am very excited to share my project!! I have been holding on to a broken wooden tray for long and I found a perfect way to up-cycle it now. This time I converted that tray into beautiful 3D wall hanging.  I also wanted to try my hands on Little Birdie's Slate Mixed Media paste and here I am with my project.....
Have a look at the finished work!

  1. First, I wanted to cover the broken bit of the tray so I decided to create an extended branch of a tree. To make the branch, I used some wire, which I twisted  into shape of a branch.

2. To give it more volume and thickness, I used some aluminum foil and at some places I used masking tape to hold the foil.

3. I used the Slate Mixed Media Paste without mixing any water to give a thick layer to the branch.

4. Thereafter, I applied this paste on my tray and sprinkled some texture fine dust powder, art stones to add extra texture to the base.

5. When it was completely dry, I pasted some chipboards and 3D chipboards from the store to create the scenery and to give it a little dimension.
6. I also created parts of the tree and branches with clay on both the sides.

7. Then I applied White Mixed Media Paste with a light hand to create tones and to distress some areas. I really loved the colors at this stage.
8. Gave a touch of Colors Splash- Midnight Blue at the top and  black, brown and green in some areas inside, to give it a little mossy look.

9. Again used White Mixed Media Paste to distress the background and to highlight the background.
10. To give it a finishing touch, added a vintage picture, some flowers and dry moss to the project.
Here are some more pictures of the completed project...

Hope you liked it. Please share your thoughts in the comment section.
Keep crafting and spreading cheer!!

Vintage patina altered box

Hello everyone I am back with one more mix media project!!  This time I have altered a discarded cardboard box and given it a  a vintage patina effect.
Have a look at the final creation before I take you through the process....

  1. I have used an old box for my mixed media project. First I applied Little Birdie Mixed Media Paste on the entire box (I used little water to dilute it as I was using it as gesso).  I used my finger to apply this paste just to get some extra texture. This is what's great about the mixed media paste, you can use this according to the desire consistency.

2. I used Little Birdie texture tool to add texture to the surface and also added some stencil work after that.

3. After the base was was done it was time to build up my layers with embellishments and some old materials from my stash. However, I first of all, I pasted few pieces of lace and then started putting the rest of the materials in place.

4. Next,  I started to play with the colours....picked a shade of brown slapsh spray colour ,rust paste from finnabair and Tinted Metallic Paint and other colours to go with it ( I feel addicted to these paints...every time I create something, I feel the urge to use them).

5. Next, I built up layers of colors till I was satisfied with colors.
6. To give my project some added beauty, I used golden beads, Hearty Melange,art stones etc. with Mont Marte gel medium.
I love the rustic vintage look , so I kept it little dullbut the Tinted Metallic Paints gave my project the perfect subtle shine that I wanted!
So here are some more pictures of the finished project....

Thank you so much for visiting here I hope you enjoyed my post 😊,hope you see you soon again
