A Fork In The Road

Hello dear ones!
The weekend is just about to start and here we come to provide you with some beautiful art inspiration - we hope that with Athanasia's expressive creation - you'll simply grab your papers and paints and spend these days creatively! :)


Life is full of forks in the road filled with the need to make new decisions. That’s what makes life so interesting and that's what today's page is about.


The whole project is based in the center of a chipboard piece, which is the focal point where all the possible choices begin. Τhe end of each wire leads to a different option and all together are twisted together back in the center where all began.


I wanted to keep it muted, not too colorful, so I chose the Metallique Acrylic Paint - Black Berry (I so love this color!) with a little bit of Vintage Rose and Light Patina.

I also used a tiny amount of Rust Mica Powder, as well some of the Frozen Lake Mica Powder here and there. I love how they blend together all the different textures.


For the background I used the Alpha Stencil as well some beautiful background stamps.

To add more texture I used two different Art Ingredients: Bronze Micro Beads and Black Mica Flakes. And for the tittle I used a sticker from the 7Dots Studio Nature Walk collection.


I like using wire in my projects and this time I had so much fun twisting different pieces, securing them with a stapler, I even created a tiny fork with it.
I used the 3D Gloss Gel to glue it down and a Mini Hardware screw to decorate it - it looks so cute!


So here is my video with the whole process, I hope you will enjoy it :)



Thank you for visiting,
have a lovely crafty weekend!
