REMEMBER and a tutorial 13

Hi there! Today it's my turn to share a project on the Prima blog featuring Finnabair art basics Mixed Media Essentials Kit.
In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, I was inspired to alter a picture frame Finnabair style. I featured a photo of my sweet daughter in law and her Mom celebrating their Irish heritage while performing a traditional Irish dance. I created a mosaic like shamrock using fun geo shapes, various Finnabair mediums from the Mixed Media Essentials Kit and mica powders.

In case you were curious about how I made this project, I took several step shots along the way sharing my creative process:
Step 1: Apply white gesso to all geo shapes, metal embellishments, shamrock and photo frame. 
Step 2: Apply white sand texture paste around geo shapes.
Step 3: Randomly apply texture and design to photo frame using stencil and modeling paste.
Step 4: Randomly adhere glass beads to photo frame using gel paste.
Step 5: Mix mica powders with water, randomly apply to photo frame and shamrock until desired look is achieved. 
Step 6: Adhere shamrock to photo frame, highlight areas using white gesso then randomly splatter with white acrylic paint.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my projects. Please be sure to visit the Prima blog for loads of awesome inspiration!
Be Sweet ;)
