Happy Wednesday everyone!! Michelle here and I hope you guys are enjoying some fall-ish weather where you are. Today I’m sharing this somewhat unconventional dreamcatcher I made with the October mixed media kit.
I was brainstorming some unique ways I wanted to use these awesome kit and tried a few things that were more traditional before I realized that I just needed to stay true to my usual style and design ascetic. You know I love to white wash, ink and rub with gold so that’s exactly what I did! lol
I started out by giving the wooden cut out by Lucky Dip a light coat of white spray paint then I watered down the “Peacock” & “Eggplant” Dina Wakley paints from Ranger and applied them with sort of a splash and dab technique with a paint brush.
Once all that Had dried well I used a black stamp pad and inked up all the edges well.
Next I used the NUVO sparkle spray in “Coco Powder” to spray the wooden feather cut outs. After it’s dry I applied some of the watered down “Peacock” Dina Wakley paint to highlight them. I just applied it with my fingers. Once again I inked the edges up with a black stamp pad.
I found some Prima flowers in my stash from a previous kit and applied more of the watered down Dina Wakley Ranger paints to them (some I watered down more than others to give various shades) and then rubbed them with some gold metallic wax.
Finally I added some bits and pieces of scrap papers, die cuts and stickers to finish the look. I added Tim Holtz paper dolls and A Vintage Girl and Her Daughter Stickers from my stash.
Here she is all put together! You would display it like this on an easel or hang it in a special place.
Thank you for stoping by today. I hope you were inspired to create something beautiful!
