Vintage in Red

Hi everyone,
New week, new project. Today's creation is so close to my heart. Monika will show you that you don't need many fancy tools or products to create a master piece. Use some paper bits, coffee stain and here you go recipe for an amazing mixed media background. See it for yourself!



Hello,
I'm so excited to show you my newest mixed media project. I created a small canvas.

  
First, I applied Modeling Paste through a Lace stencil. It took me just a short moment to dry the texture with heating gun.



My next step was to cover my piece with a layer of Heavy White Gesso. Next, I started layering my doilies and paper paper from Sunrise Sunset collection – I cut it into small pieces that I stapled together.



I used plenty of paper scraps, some cut-outs and other leftovers which I could find on my desk. Then, I added a thin coat of gesso.


 
I glued all my elements in the desired place. I added some Mechanicals embellishments to complete my composition. When everything was dry I picked stamps form Vintage Vanity collection.


For my final touches, I added some color using a tea bag, strong coffee and couple drops of red ecoline. Enjoy!







Happy creating!
