Lucky 13

Happy Creative Friday, Friends!
Athanasia has a beautiful mixed media treat to inspire us all! Whether you believe in luck or not, you will certainly feel like playing with paints and media after you see her new art canvas. :)


They say that 13 is an unlucky number. But what if we could define our own luck, stop being superstitious (I never was or will be, that's for sure) and decide to take chances even from things we never believed we could and even more it the end number 13 would be a lucky number?

Well, today's project is not about number 13, it's about being optimistic, taking risks and creating our own luck! :)




I was really in such a pleasant mood when I was creating this project and I think this mood shows up in the final result. I wanted to use bright colors that make me happy and what would fit better than the beautiful combinations of blue, pink, yellow and green of the Art Alchemy Acrylic Paints?


I painted everything with all these beautiful colors, even the metal embellishments like this cute Mechanical Butterfly and the front part of an old hand-watch I had in my stash.



Before I glued down the watch, I filled it with different Art Ingredients like the Art Stones and Mini Art Stones (I so love them!) and Bronze Micro Beads. Then I used 3D Gloss Gel to glue the watch on the canvas and make sure it won't go anywhere! ;)


I used my Silicone Brush to apply different texture pastes (all links below) and create an interesting textured background...


To make it even more cute, I used Jump Rings to hang some trinkets like a tassel, Roman Numerals (which actually are numbers 10 and 3 :) ), a gear and the title I made from a 7Dots Studio sticker.



Here is my video with the whole process. I hope you will enjoy it and get some ideas on how to create your own lucky piece of art.



Thank you for visiting.
Have a lovely crafty weekend!
