Take Your Time Mixed Media Plaque inspired by Art Daily Cafe Cornucopia-August 2020

Hey Crafty Friends,  how is everyone doing?  Hopefully you're getting some crafting time in!  
I was inspired to try Art Daily Cafe Corncucopia August 2020 moodboard!  If you have time check it out!  
I created on a Prima Vintage Wall Decor Base using lots of Finnabair products,  Scrapaholic and Reneabouquets supplies.
For the technique image transfer I grabbed an image from Finnabair's Vintage photobooth sticker sheet.  I had to watch a video on how to transfer the image.  It only took 3 tries!  LOL!
You're supposed to let the image dry overnight,  I was impatient the first 2 times and tried rubbing off the paper.......BAD mistake!!!  Be patient!!!  I really enjoyed the process after I let it dry overnight but you still have to be careful!  

I did some stenciling with White Sand texture paste then I used some Finnabair's Liquid Acrylic paints.  I also used Finnabair's moulds for embellishing.  I also added some Art Stones for added texture!
I used Frank Garcia's Resin Frame and used wax on it and then added some microbeads.  Once the Leafy vines and Cogs and Wings mould pieces were almost dry I painted them with different Liquid Acrylic paints then added Rust Effects paste Gold Rust.  I also painted the chipboard pieces from Scrapaholic with those same paints.  For the Art Pebbles I used an Acrylic paint.

Once everything was in place I added Finnabair metal embellishments,  Prima Flowers,  beads,  sequins,  Glass Glitter and microbeads. 

In the end this turned out way better than I thought,  at the beginning when I was using paints it wasn't looking so good but I kept playing!  
Thank you Art Daily Cafe for having this fun monthly challenge,  it's another place for me to join the fun and also gets me out of my comfort zone to try new and fun ideas!  It also gives me another chance to use my favorite mixed media products from Finanbair!

Thank you for stopping by!
Happy Creating!

Dream Without Fear Mixed Media Canvas

Happy Sunday!!!  I have another Mixed Media Canvas *Dream Without Fear* using lots of Finnabair supplies.
Once again Finnabair Recipe Art Challenge is super fun!  This challenge always gives me a great place to pick colors for a project!
I used Finnabair's Light Texture paste on the Feather Chipboard pieces and then painted them with Finnabair's Ultramarine Liquid Acrylic paint and then rubbed some Finnabair Wax to finish it off.

 I love everything and anything Finnabair!  
I hope you get a chance to join this challenge,  it is always fun and inspiring!
