A mixed media wall art by DT Kriti Mishra

Namaste everyone!!

I am Kriti Mishra and I am very excited to be a part of Rainbow Craftykari design team, and this is my first post. Heartiest thanks to Maninder Kaur and entire Rainbow Crafykari team for this opportunity. Today, I have come up with a tutorial post.
I have made a mixed media wall art. A sneak peak



Tutorial for this

1. Firstly take a watercolour paper, cover it with clear gesso and dry it with the heat gun.



2. After that take a regular tissue paper, crush it between your hands and tear it in small pieces. Now paste these small pieces over the paper (in random manner) to make the first layer of texture, and prime it with white heavy gesso(apply gesso with spatula to make more interesting extra texture). Now randomly add some thread to add more texture and cover it with  gesso, after that dry it with heat gun.



3. Spray some water on the surface and spray the colours. Movement will happen and stop spraying when you get the desired shade.


4. After that use any background stamp( I have used bubble stamp) to give a bit more contrast and to fill in a bit more of the open spaces.



5. Now embellish it in any way you like ( I embellish it with some burlap string, flowers, glass beads and with some sequins). Add lastly adorn it with a beautiful quote or a sentiment(I distressed the edges with distress ink). And its all done.
