Hello crafters!!! How are you? I am Viktoriya Porechnaya and today, I decided to use a Mixed Media Origins dragonfly image for stylish dragonfly canvas – blue\turquoise and trendy gold work so well together!
Tattered Angels Mixed Media Origins Mini Art pieces give us so many different ways to create unique artwork. All you need to make it happen is some Tattered Angels paints and make the images come alive for great results!
Viktoriya used the following for her two-tone canvas:
Canvas Corp Stretched Natural Canvas 6×6
Tattered Angels Mixed Media Origins Mini Arts Collection – Wings
Tattered Angels High Impact Paint – Light Gold
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists – Imperial Blue, Dragonfly, Aquamarine, Gold
Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam – Chandelier, Golden Goddess
Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze – Blue Oasis
7gypsies Architextures Tall Base – Chicken Wire
Palette Knife, Stencil
Find the central line of canvas and paint the right side with blue\turquoise tones of Glimmer Mists with brush.
Apply Light Gold High Impact Paint to the left side of canvas using palette knife – create wide thick strokes.
Dry it with hot air gun.
Use the stencil and apply the same golden paint through it to the blue side of canvas. Let it dry.
Now, paint the Mixed Media Origins Dragonfly making sure the colors are the opposite way to the canvas – the left wings and body are blue, the right ones are golden.
Add shimmering to wings – use Glimmer Glams Chandelier and Gold Goddess for it.
Add more dimension and shine for body – use Glimmer Glaze Blue Oasis.
When all the paint on your dragonfly dries, fussy cut it from paper.
Then use some stamps and Archival ink for creating background.
I’ve also decided to add a piece of Architextures Tall Base Chicken Wire to the background to create more texture.
Adhere the Dragonfly to the center line using thick cardboard and hot glue for additional dimension.
You only need to add one title.
You can see the result and beautiful shining wings here.
Your project is ready!
You can choose any colors to create similar art work – make sure you use contrasting ones for best results (they are on the opposite ends of the colour palette circle).
