" Dark night " - a mix media notebook

April 14, 2018
Hello folks,

                 How are you all ? Today I am back again with another project of mix media as i love that so much ....I altered an ordinary  ‘’MIX MEDIA NOTEBOOK’’.

Step 1:  Take any notebook of your choice. With a knife through Stencils, I did some textures on front cover.  I have applied randomly 2 in 1 Gesso and Modelling paste, Fibre paste and Grainy Texture paste to get beautiful textures on cover. After that I applied Black Gesso by dry brushing method on entire cover.

Step2:   I sprinkled Gold Embossing powder at some places to highlight the textures. Now start sticking the Embellishments of your choice on the cover with the help of silicon glue. After first layer of Embellishments again applied Black Gesso on it and repeat this procedure again with more embellishments for the second layer on cover.

Step3:   Then applied randomly Texture Sand and Crystal Drops with the help of Soft Gloss Gel. Soft Gloss Gel will help them to stick properly on page. I loved all beautiful shades of Gold Alcohol Splash from the store, so used two shades to get more depth for my project. I sprinkled Pink Punch and Frosted Pool colours at some places to get shine with lovely colours.

Step4:  Now applied Metallic Paints with brushes by Dry Bushing method on Embellishments till you will get the result which you want. When I am satisfied with the outcome, I applied bronze colour on top the embellishments to get the highlight which I want.

Step5:  At the end I have a beautiful pendant of OWL, which I used for my project and attached wings and chippie around it. Again did dry brushing on wings and chippie with the help of metallic colours and brushes to go with the background. I sprinkled Fairy Sparkle as a last step of my project to get more spark in it.
