Mixed Media Diary - Step by Step Tutorial

Hey fellas!

Hope you are doing great!!
I have been away for some time, creating few things and writing few posts. I have been away from my crafts blog for quite some time as I took certain experiments and want to share one of my best creations so far. This is my favorite because of my love for diaries. :)

Coming up is the series of pictures of final creation followed by the step by step procedure.

Here is how I completed this project:


Step 1: I applied white Gesso all over the surface and let it dry. Then I started fixing the elements I chose for the project.


Step 2: Here is a look with all the tits bits fixed with tacky glue. 
Wait! Did you notice that gel pen refill? ;)


Step 3: Once all is fixed, let it dry and apply the white gesso all over. Use the heat gun to make it dry. 
Fingers crossed as I am working on mixed media after a long time... So, I am a bit skeptical how it will come out to be... So, Fingers crossed. 


Step 4: What about some embossing? I love it. I just used some writing textures' stamp and light blue embossing powder. 

Step 5: Emboss the texture using heat gun before you use spray paints. 



Step 6: Now that's an interesting one. You need to choose what colors you want... tip-i-tip-i tap, what color you want? ;)
I chose: Ocean Waves, Mystical Sky and Sweet shine shimmer spray colors from Craftyscrappers. 

Step 7: See the effect of first spray:


Now some magic of mystical sky. See how beautiful the embossed effect came up.


what about some sweet sunshine. 
Blue + Yellow = Green. Hence this effect.


Have a closer look at the resin frame. I added some matching sparkle to it.

Once all of it is dried up, I added some metallic silver color to bring out the highlights.
