Today i finished a tag for Mixed Media Monthly Challenge here is their challenge board
with a few of my favorite things.
And here is my take...
I used rock candy transparent crackle, acrylic paint, mica powder, mica fragments, glass glitter, distress embossing powder and lindy's spray. The final product is not where I started but sometimes that is how it goes.
I started with spraying the tag with various lindy's sprays, and swiped on rock candy distress crackle paint. Allow to dry
Next I added an assortment of embellishments, ribbon, twine, chipboard, metal accents.
I wanted to paint the embellishments black and leave the crackle so the color would pop through but nope i didn't like it so I painted the whole tag with black acrylic paint. I love how the paint looks on the crackle.
I lightly dust the tag with black paint (so mica has something to stick to) then dust with mica powders. I used Art Ingredients frozen lake, gold and cold pink. Once applied i misted with water to set the mica powder.
Close up of the mica along the crackle paint. LOVE IT.
I added swipe of gel medium and sprinkled on glass glitter, mica fragments, and distress embossing powder. Lots and lots of texture. I added white lines by running the edge of my palette knife through white paint and pressing into tag.
I allowed this to dry overnight to make sure everything was set.
Both the clock face and claws hands i got from Treasured Memories in Edmonton.
Really loving mixed media right now.
