Let Your Spirit Take Flight by Steph
Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with a mixed media panel.
Start by spritzing a canvas board with assorted colors of Fireworks! Shimmery Craft Sprays, heat setting between each color.
Die cut a leafy panel from Emerald/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper. Look at all those details.
Adhere to the panel with Mod Podge.
Allow the panel to dry, then randomly spread gesso about the panel.
Spritz with additional colors of Fireworks! Shimmery Craft Sprays. Heat set between the colors.
Use StazOn Pigment Ink in Chocolate to ink around the edges of the panel. Also, run the ink pad across the panel. StazOn Pigment Ink is a permanent ink and works exceptionally well on slick surfaces.
Die cut leaves from Ruby Starstruck, Emerald/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper, and Copper Starstruck. Ink the leaves with both brown and green inks. I used StazOn Pigment ink in Shamrock Green and Chocolate. I had some lovely little Lavinia Fairies and thought they would be great behind the windows in the leaves
The phrase was stamped on a scrap of Gold/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper with StazOn Piano Black Ink.
I assemble the panel, placing the leaves on an angle. Cutting apart the phrase I matted it with Ebony/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper before adhering it to the panel.
Finally, I die cut happy fall from Ebony/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper using a Lawn Fawn Die and adhered it across the bottom.
What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by.
