Live Your Dreams

Hi All,

Lia Walsh here!

Today I finished this layout of my daughter surfing in  Indonesia.

I started off by applying the slate Mixed Media paste to this beautiful Bamboo Stencil.

Next, the messy part – I build up layers and textures by applying home decor Chalk Acrylic Paint and Gel Medium.

I added Sand for texture, Cheesecloth and Gel Bead Medium and continued to build up layers. Adding extra bursts of colour with Chalk Acrylic Paint…

Next, I created a backing for the photo using a piece of torn corrugated board, cheesecloth threads, with a dash of chalk acrylic paint.

I added my photo (with distressed edges).

Next I added this chipboard title “Live Your Dreams” which I had painted with Taupe Acrylic so it would stand out more.

Then I finished up by adding these beautiful Little Birdie Succulents.


Thanks for popping by!
