Mixed media wall piece with Black gesso

Hello all,
 happy weekend.I am here today to share my mixed media piece i did just for fun.I was  actually cleaning my table to start working on a order work and found some bits n  pieces of embellishments laying on table which dint make it to the projects.I was so lazy to keep them each one of them on their place n suddenly the idea of this piece strikes off.I was waiting to try something with black gesso for quiet some time,so quickly grabbed a piece of chipboard and stuck all those embellishments.Then painted the whole thing with a coat of Heavy black gesso.Once it dried i randomly painted them with Silk acrylic glaze-Iridescent colors.I just love silks to use on my layouts,the shine it gives is amazing.But using Iridescent color for first time,they just look white in the bottle,and doesn't show off on lighter color surfaces,but it looks awesome over black gesso.I was actually jumping like a kid while it came in contact with black gesso,a little color goes a long way and it gives a amazing jewel tone.Hope you liked my quick project,see ya all soon :)

Thanks for stopping by,
Happy crafting,

Pin It

Wow Kavitha, this is fabulous. I am seeing a lot of mixed media at the moment and would love to try it - maybe one day.
Love all your embellishments and the black gesso looks fabulous as does the gorgeous butterfly.
