COUSINS.....Childhood playmates who grow up to be FRIENDS FOREVER.
I am the lucky one who got one elder sister and 11 cousins.
Hello Friends, few days back I made a mixed of mine with my sister. I shared that in our cousin's whatsapp group, after seeing that my last little cousin brother Vini told that he to want one mixed media with me, so I made this for him. A small wall hanging to decor his home.
First I took 10*12 canvas and lined the canvas with my favourite paper PAPERICIOUS Ephemera and Infinity. Here I took paper from different collections.
I torn the edge of 2nd paper and colored the edge with distress ink to give a burn effect.
At the top and bottom I added texture paste using Memory Box stencil, My Favorite Thing and Tim Holtz stencils.
I mixed Forest moss with texture paste while using Memory Box stencils and Acrylic color with texture paste while using Tim Holtz stencil.
Once the texture paste dry I applied Crackle paint on few places and stamped in few area with Prime stamp.
I handmade all the flowers using different types of ink. I used Heroarts Neon ink, distress ink and chalk ink to color the flowers and die cut the flowers using Joys Crafts dies. To make it more interesting I added a tiny Wine bottle.
In this work I added lot of different metal embellishment like butterfly, key, anchor, bird with nest dragon head. Under the flowers I used bandage cloth to give more texture. As the cloth was white so I colored it with forest moss distress ink and spray water on it.
Lace and MDF cutouts
At top left corner I added lace and applied crackle paint on it. On MDF cutouts I used distress crayons and its awesome to work with that. Here I used Vintage photo, walnut and Picket fence. On MDF key I applied Crackle accent and at torn area I glued Superman flatback.
I used sentiment from Papericious Ephemera collection and added 2 roses on top of it.
I didn't do any work on bottom right corner because there was beautiful flowers, bird and gate. Here I added one more sentiment from same collection 'MOMENTS' die cut.
After finishing the work I felt that the MDF hearts were looking dull so I added some Gold liquid pearl.
Hope you all liked it.
