"Altered Mixed Media " Guest Inspiration by Veena Chowdhry

Hello Crafty Friends, 
This is Veena, glad to be the Guest Designer for Prika Blog for March Month. 

This month theme is ‘Stars, Moon and Galaxy’ which is one of my favourite. In most of my projects I use moon moulds and was excited that I got to make something which I really love.  I love altered art, so I decided to alter a round wooden plaque.

Below is the list of supplies and later I have the picture of the items to refer the colours.
  • Wooden Plaque
  • Impasto paints
  • Black Gesso
  • Finnabair waxes
  • Metal, Resin and wooden embellishments
  • Metallique paint

Pictures of the supplies:

  • Paints, waxes, gesso and metallique paint

Step 1: I started by applying the cobalt and black impasto paint on the wooden plaque. I used a sponge to blend the colours.

Step 2: Gathered embellishments for the assembly.

Step 3: Applied black gesso on the embellishments.

Step 4: I played around with embellishments to finalise the assembly.

Step 5: I tried to use wooden embellishments as wings to the moon. I started colouring the embellishments. For Moon, I have used “Mint Spark” wax and for wings I have used “Peacock” wax. Then I highlighted the moon with “Old Silver” wax.

Step 6: Then I glued the embellishments and started waxing same. I used “Amethyst Magic” and “Mystic Turquoise” wax.

Step 7: Then I applied “Aged Brass” and “Indian Pink” wax to highlight some areas. Lastly I used Gold Metallique paint to add some splatter to give it a galaxy look.

The final Project is ready:

I hope you like my project and feel inspired to create project to participate in the challenge.

Happy crafting 😊
