IQCG# 38 - Mixed Media - Textures and Shine

Time for the monthly challenge at the IQCG blog and this time we are looking for something mixed media with lots of textures and shine.

My DT inspiration is here




I altered a perfume bottle and thoroughly enjoyed the process and was absolutely thrilled with the outcome. I started of with pasting tissue paper with some gel medium. Once that was dried I glued the chipboard and the glued elements(flowers and leaves). The next step was applying black gesso and once that dried I coloured the flowers and leaves and the chipboard with some metallic acrylic paint.
Sprayed some mica sprays  and spread some gold wax for an added effect. Finished it off with some microbeads.

Materials used :
Gel medium
Tissue paper
Black gesso
Metallique wax
Mica sprays
Micro beads
Acrylic paint

Waiting to see all your wonderful entries for this amazing cue... I am sure we will get to see some amazing stuff as usual... Link up your project here...
