  1. Prime the mdf base with 2 thin layers of gesso.

So here is my MIXED MEDIA RECYCLED CARDBOARD ROLLS

 

Mixed Media recycled cardboard rolls1.jpg

 

 

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

 

  1. I took three small size cardboard roll and glue them together.
  2. Next I added cotton cloth using PVA glue, To create more texture on the surface   I also added some thread.
  3. After it dries completely, I glue down some jewelry pieces, and to put everything together I glue down some art stones and micro beads.
  4. To prime the project I decided to use chalk paint instead of gesso… the shade I used here is called hazy cucumber. ( I just love the way chalk paint gives colored matt finish and at the same time primes the surface nicely and smoothly )
  5. To give little bit of depth around the object I used shimmer spray “Dancing Peacock” from craftyscrappers.
  6. Next for focal point I added chipboard cutout… here I used fairy and covered this cutout using Craftyscrappers shimmer paste “Sweet Pumpkin” and then glue down that chipboard cutout on to the project.
  7. To finish the project I used sentiment from stamp set called “Inspire”.
  8. I highlighted project with gesso using dry brush technique.
