Dance Like No One Is Watching

Hello, Everyone!  It is my turn to provide some inspiration on the MoonFlower Digital Stamps blog.  I tried my hand at a little mixed media this week.  Still trying to decide how I feel about it.  Mixed media just doesn't flow for me like other forms of crafting.

I used Gigi Bellydancer to create this mixed media piece.  I put down a coat of acrylic paint to lessen the texture of the canvas.  On top of that, I put a layer of watercolor paint in a blue green color.  I had to mix the color myself, and it took me a while to get it right!  Once the paint was dry, I used texture paste and a stencil to create my background texture.  I also embossed a piece of chipboard with a music note embossing folder.  I was just going to put chunks of it on, but I didn't like the edges, so I cut out selected notes instead.

Once the paste was dry, I sprayed the whole piece with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.  It adds color and some wonderful shimmer.  Then I used some Viva Decor metallic paint and a flat brush and just hit the highlights of the stenciling and the notes.  The sentiment was computer generated and cut to fit the piece.

Gigi Bellydancer was colored with Copics and cut out using my Silhouette Cameo.  She has a little Wink of Stella in gold so she has some shimmer as well.  A few flowers and buttons finish the piece.
