Midnight in the Garden

Long, long time.  Life has been really busy and I have been focusing on painting here are my latest two.
One of the old trucks at the end of our grass runway.

This is a portrait of my father in law Jake.

This month at Frilly and Funkie the monthly challenge is Embellishments, Trinkets and Trim.

This mixed media collage layout was created with tinted texture paste, alchemy paint and modeling paste, Aga Baraniak embellishment sheet, Treasure Memories (Edmonton) post page, Boozybear Stencil, clay embellishments using Finnabair molds and various embellishments.

I started with half a sheet of pattern paper on the bottom half then used Finnabair art basics dabbing brush (these are fantastic) and two shades of texture paste- midnight blue and mauve purple.  Paint like it is night time sky.

Mix light modeling paste and grape preserves art alchemy paint and apply through stencil created by me.

Finally lots of fuzzy cutting, I love the mushrooms on Aga Baraniak element page.  Ink edges of all paper elements with vintage photo and ground espresso distress ink.

The moon molds were painted with alchemy unicorn paint, and antiqued with raw umber acrylic paint.  I also used lots of pop dots to get depth.

Added beads into a vial and glued stopper in.

Added trinkets in and around layout clusters.
