Bright MixedMedia Panel

Hello, Giovanna here! This month on IndigoBlu we are celebrating the Bonfire Night in England. Bonfires and fireworks reminds me of mid-Summer, so I made a MixedMedia panel with the brightest colours ever, and a touch of vintage,using a beautiful image from the Lost Family pad:

Here the step by step: I studied a rough composition of all the elements

I glued down the embellishments and die-cuts

I added some texture with Super Thick Slap it On through a stencil

I gessoed everything and set aside to dry

I mixed some Cottage paint with water in a spray bottle and sprayed

I stamped flowers and butterflies on gessoed book pages

I coloured them with Gelatos

I added all the elements to the panel along with the main image.

It is super easy!
