Mixed Media VIDEO TUTORIAL {Dusty Attic Designs}

 
I've been on the Dusty Attic Design Team for almost 5 years now and one of the first pieces I was given to work with was the French Window Pane....I really loved this window design and was saving it for a special project....almost 5 years later I've finally come up with the special project I wanted to use it on.  For this canvas I used loads of Dusty attic chipboard pieces as well as some of their paints and blooms.  I always find when it comes to mixed media it is best to show rather than tell so here is a video tutorial I made up (this one is a half hour because I wanted to show all the misting and layering, so grab a cup of coffee or tea, relax and enjoy! 



Supplies used on this project:
~ 8x10 Canvas
~ Maja Design Patterned Paper (for window) Vintage Summer Basics
~ Dusty Attic Chipboard:  DeVine Frame Set, Wrought Iron Fence, Mini Ornate Gate #2, French Window Pane, Brick Wall Panel, Mini Bird Houses, Bird Nests #1, Mini Birds #3, Mini Branches, Monarch Butterflies, Flutterbies #3.
~ Paint: Dusty Attic 'Dusty in Color' paints (Cashmere, Hot Chocolate), Luminarte Silks 'Peridot', Lindy's Stamp Gang spritz (Sea Grass Green, Steampunk Sepia,Treasure Island Aqua), Tim Holtz: Pink Sherbet Alcohol Ink, Antique Linen Distress Paint, Gesso.
~ Prima loose flowers, Dusty Attic mini roses.
~ Stencils:  Crafters Workshop 'Art Is' 6x6 stencil, Prima Sunrise Sunset checkered stencil.
~ Home made texture paste ....recipe can be found at this link http://gabriellepollacco.blogspot.ca/2013/06/a-tranquil-moment-with-new-websters.html

Here are some close ups again of this canvas that you can view at a more leisurely pace...







I also want to thank Janene from The Scrapbook Diaries for all the lovely mixed media supplies she sends me, I got to use lots of them on this project (thanks so much Janene!) xo 

I hope you enjoyed my video tutorial and hope that I've inspired you to try using chipboard to create your next mixed media canvas design!

Your canvas is stunning, I lack words! Thank you so much for your clear tutorial!
I do have a question, maybe I missed it... But what is the white stuff you're brushing over the relief in the end? Paint, or gesso?

Keep up inspiring me :)

Hi Gabriel, what a marvellous project all from a window frame! It's just brilliant. Hugs xxx

Michelle Gray said...

Gabrielle! I love this piece! As a newbie to Mixed Media, it amazes me how gesso neutralizes things so well that wouldn't otherwise work together because of clashing colors or otherwise unappealing colors. I learn some much from watching your videos. Thanks so much for sharing!

I am just going to say, WOW.. :)
Every detail is awesome. And thanks for this tutorial.
