Hello everyone...it's Mixed Media art
Today I'm sharing another project using the new Perfect Paints - specifically, the Comic Shimmer mists, Color-Art iridescent paints. My first project for "More than words " challenge with the word "Wonderful" made by cotton cloth base mixed media, that turned out bright and very colorful.
I was inspired by the color pink and gold.
"'I used the word WONDERFUL, bcoz, February gives me a lot of wonderful moments, I won Dusty attic last month challenge, and plus 3 more other blog challenges....(Lulupu, Rheddy's creative and 613 avenue create)"
I got this different look by using a base of black gesso, and applying the paints with a dry-brush technique that put the color on with a lighter coating and let the black & white gesso show through in spots. The shimmer of these paints really gives this muted look a beautiful glow...
I have some photo's of step by step work pic
1. Thick cotton cloth
2. Gluing on 1mm chipboard

Inka Gold for finishing touch.
before adding spark
The beautiful Dustic Attic chipboard is perfect for this mixed media , Some tiny little scattered glass glitter have also added a touch of sparkle and Shine.
