Hello friends in the New Year!
As many of you, I too have my terms, dreams and goals to achieve. But this time I'm going to go after what I want, instead of waiting. I think this is the perfect plan. Keep fingers crossed!
For a good start, I made this mixed media banner for Finnabair Creative Team.
This is a second part of my bigger project, the first banner you can see here - Create Yourself.
That is going to be my motivator, a driving force to action. Maybe you will feel inspired to create your own one, too.
I used a lot of Mechanicals metal embellishments, some pieces from Prima moulds and crystals. Even though my banner is not large, I wanted to create a feeling of rich texture and deep space.
Once I arranged my composition, I covered it all with Heavy White Gesso to achieve a mysterious, foggy effect. It also beautifully highlighted all the details and "softened" the glitter effect.
As for the color effects, I used Mica Powders that are such an amazing and versatile product! You can make your own pastes, paints and mists simply mixing in these magical powders - just imagine the possibilities… Or you can also simply sprinkle the surface with this shiny product and spray it with water. That's what I did here and I got some really beautiful color transitions.
I made a video tutorial especially for you so you can follow my creative process. Enjoy!
