Blue Mood Board

This month at Mixed Media Place  the moodboard is very blue!

All blue and chilly which is perfect, I created these on a weekend when it was -40


I started with 3"x4" chipboard cards glued on a chipboard compass.  Once dry paint with white gesso.


Next paint with blue acrylic paint, I used white and Impasto Jade and Azure.  Make sure you get into all the nooks and crannies. Dry.  Next make a lighter tint of blue then dry brush on, makes it look grainy.


Lightly sand ATC, then ink.  The ink settles into the sanded portion and wipes off the painted areas.  Ink the whole ATC with embossing ink and emboss with clear powder.  I like to tap off some embossing powder before I heat set.



Wipe on Art Deco English red oxide then wipe off excess.  The spots where the clear embossing powder was tapped off, the red paint settles in and it looks like stucco.


Final step!! Paint on yellow oxide in the grooves, ends up looking like rusty old metal.  FUN FUN


Here is the final project, funky metal steampunk feel.  These were really fun to make and love how they turned out.
