Mixed Media Wooden Pumpkin

Happy Saturday Y’all!

Today I’m bringing a fun mixed media project so break out all the things!

I started off with an unfinished wooden pumpkin ornament and I applied a coat of Haute Mess white gesso.  Then I applied Molding Paste through a stencil and allowed it to dry before applying a series of color washes in two amazing Haute Mess pink colors, “Couture Pink” and “Sweet Candy Kisses”.

I couldn’t leave good enough alone so I flicked a bit of diluted torrid to the still wet paint and allowed it to bleed into the design.  Next I applied Haute Mess glass bead gel and then rubbed on some gold metallic.

Once all the paints were dry I glued all my awesome emblishements on and added some glitters with some Haute Mess Matte Gel Medium.

It sounds like a lot but it really was a quick, fun project!

I hope you are inspired to make something beautiful today!

Junque it Up: Embroidery Hoop Wall Decor

Hello friends!

It’s me, Rae, and today I am sharing a project that I made using items from the October Mixed Media kit, Paris Flea Market, and some broken embroidery hoops I had bought for a different project some time ago, and accidentally stepped on the bag the y were in and cracked them. I knew I’d be able to use them for something else, so I didn’t throw them away. All I had to do was cover up the broken parts, and that huge purple flower totally works!

Here’s the finished project:

In the kit there are pieces of canvas and some amazing transfers. I love this one with the birds, so I used the Bad Girls Couture Matte Gel Medium to transfer it onto the canvas. It was a pretty, bright white, but I wanted it to be somewhat dingy, and even looked a little stained, so I added some light brown mist to achieve that look.

I painted both of the hoops with blue Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam, then added some brown ink for an antiqued look. I added the canvas to the smaller hoop, then adorned it with pearls that I glued on individually, and I also added the resin “shell” that I painted with the pink Tattered Angels Glitter Glam, also in this mixed media kit.To complete the design of the smaller hoop, I added this amazing vintage purple flower and leaves.

I traced the larger hoop on the 7 Gypsies paper, then cut out and glued to the back.

On the outer hoop I added the beaded trim, also in the mixed media kit, so it would hang below once it was hung up.

There are still some of the Paris Flea Market kits in the store and it is FILLED with amazing stuff, so be sure to grab one HERE!
