newchallenge sssm

Hello, my dear crafty friends, I hope you all enjoyed your weekend or Halloween. It's time of r anew challenge! This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we want to see your creation with GLOSSY effect. From glossy accents to clear embossing powder, gloss cards tock to shiny domed embellishments, there is a lot of gloss power. This week show us the glossy inspiration on your project. 

I created a glossy mixed media wall hanging for my art studio.

I was inspired to create this 5" X 7" mixed media canvas with the Crackle Paint on the background first, and layered the cardboard and die cut embellishment on it. I pasted Tim Holtz Sizzix Die cut gears, arrow and butterfly on it using Faber-Castell Glaze. The Faber-Castell Glaze is a great adhesive  for mixed media projects.

After distressing the canvas with Distress Paint, I colored the die cut embellishments with the Distress Paint, too, and distressed the butterfly and gears with Faber-Castell Big Brush Pen.

I love to mixed the cardboard die cut and metal embellishments on my mixed media project. There are some Tim Holtz Remnant rubs on the embellishments.

The last step was covering the canvas and all the embellishments with Faber-Castell Glaze for a beautiful sheen and protecting the surface. I really love the gorgeous glossy effect that Faber-Castell created on this canvas.
