This color combo was quite a challenge for me, not exactly my first choice of a color palette. But, I'm so glad I took this challenge - I love it and I think it will be one of my favorite color choices from now on. I created a mixed-media canvas with a little bit of masculine (or maybe boyish? :) ) look. The whole composition is rich in embellishments and add-ons, very dimensional, and full of layers.
The background is also quite varied - I used pieces from moulds, metal embellishments, and clear Art Pebbles. The colors come from Mica Powders and Art Alchemy paints. I lightened them gently with White Heavy Gesso.
I used Art Alchemy Waxes to turn chipboard elements into metal-looking parts. The waxes are just perfect for this! For me, the best way to apply the Waxes is simply with my fingers. :) This way you can easily control the amount, and the way you want to apply them. I really love the smooth, shiny effect. And let's not forget the delicious scent accompanying you as you create. ;)
