Wood+Prima+Finnabair= Unique Mixed Media Decor Piece!

Hey everyone, happy Tuesday to you all! I hope your day is off your day is off to a great start! For today's post I wanted to share a mixed media project I made for my home. I used supplies from my stash, paint, and texture paste on a 6 1/2" x 10 1/2" wood board to create a unique wall hanging.
                                 So without further ado. here are the pics for you to check out:

Completed wall hanging.

 I used gesso, texture paste, acrylic paints in ivory and blue as well as Bronze Distress Paint to create the background.

I used pieces from Prima, Finnabair, Tim Holz and  Hobby Lobby's Spare Parts line.
I arranged them on the board, adhered them and painted them using the colors I used for the background.

                                      I arranged pieces of sea glass along the top and bottom.
I used my texture paste to adhere them and painted them using Liquitex Metallic Paints in Rich Gold and Bronze.

         For the butterflies I used angel wings charms from Spare Parts and pearls for the bodies.

 To achieve the look of flowers I used my Prima Wood Icons for the centers and my Finnabair Mechanicals for the blooms.
I used some gears and clock hands from Spare Parts to create the stems.

As a finishing touch I added shading around each of the pieces using my Faber-Castell Big Brush Marker in Black.

                                                           And voila! Piece complete!

                                              I hope you enjoyed this project for today!
                                        Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! :)
