Arrrrrr Mateys Avast Ye. Stop being lily livered and start embracing the Fiddlers Green!
Hey everyone, It’s Erika here and today I’m sharing with you a project I created using a bunch of treasure from the Mixed Media Color Kits at Gauche Alchemy. Recycling is a great way to be environmentally aware, and considering how many trees my paper stash has euthanized, I gotta give back every way I can. The project I’m sharing with you today is all about using things you might throw out. Shells, beads, mesh wire, ugly plain door hanger…well you get the drift.
First I painted the entire piece with black Gesso. While it was still wet, I added perfect pearls, then heat set with a heating tool. Great effect. Then added me pirate treasure filled with dubloons and gems. Here is the final project filled with the best of Davy Jones Locker.
In the close-ups, you can see bits and pieces of the Wedding Night,, It’s All Gravy, Baby! and the Banana Hammock Mixed Media Color Kits. Since I’m a huge Pirates Fan, this piece really came together and I love the end result.
If you want see a tutorial of this project, stop on by the Bombshell Forum. Hope you have a great week! Now go get loaded to the Gunwales or walk the plank. Geez I think I could really embrace wench life.
Until next time.
