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!
