For me, a simple way to attract good energy is to be in nature. Filling my home with these type creations with positive energy really help me to raise my vibrations and help me along my path of purpose.

Step.1: I applied Prima Marketing Haevy Gesso-White to cover the whole MDF piece, dried it properly. Then, added some natural twigs, pistachio shells and natural brown hemp twine to create background with lots of nature inspired elements like branch of tree with a nest, flowers, leaves, weeds beside the lake.

Step.2: Then, I used different stencils with Prima Marketing-Modeling Paste- Opaque Matte to create some extra textures here and there. After drying, further added many colors using Lindy’s starburst sprays (Drop Dead Gorgeous Green and Sea Grass Green), also added other shades using Bratwurst Brown magical shakers.

Step.3: I used many die cuts leaves (colored with Mont Marte acrylic paints Lemon Yellow and Sap Green), woolen thread, paper clay embellishments,metal charms and miniature eggs to give it a beautiful scenic textures and effects. I used Prima 3D Gloss Gel to adhere all the embellishments. Then, dried it completely and added Finnabair Art Alchemy- Metallique Green Olive acrylic paint along with some Lindy’s sprays ( (Drop Dead Gorgeous Green and Sea Grass Green). Dried completely using heat gun.

Step.4: I selected some Little Birdie 3D alpha stickers from Itsy Bitsy to write “NATURE” sentiment and colored them with Lindy’s magical shakers (Bratwurst Brown and Lederhosen Laurel) by sprinkling some magical powder on the letters.

Step. 5: At the end applied Finnbair Mint- Green Patina effect paste and Rust effect pastes (Red rust effect paste and Gold rust effect paste).
