I had a play with some mixed media during the week, and had a total blast.  I was a bit intimidated at first, me no likey a mess!  So it’s still very neat and Bev-like, but that’s as messy as I get.

I started off with a round mdf plaque which I coated in gesso, then added some dry wall tape in patches and also did some stencilling for extra texture.  I die cut some doilies but then went and mostly covered them up.  I painted all the embellishments, including the flowers, with white gesso before sticking them in place with hot glue.  I misted with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Nantucket Pearls (OMG this set is beyond sublime!!).  THEN …… I decide it needs something else so attack it with stamps.  Eek, this terrified the life out of me I can tell you.  But I’m so glad I braved it, it really did add that little extra sumthin’ that it needed.


LOVE those wings!!  I bought a mould off eBay for a couple of quid and used Martha Stewart clay.  Once dry I coated with gesso then when stuck in place and the misting was done I went over them (and the little clock, cherub, key and heart buttons) with twinkling H2O’s and gold acrylic paint


The DREAM sentiment is a die – I die cut it four times, glued together then coated in gesso.  It looks just like a chipboard sentiment – well impressed Smile


Totally love the colours – so soft and pretty.


I really really loved playing making this little plaque, I think I’m addicted to mixed media now
