Here is my latest mixed media project. But this time the theme is the travelling and I have so longed to make it for a while.
To do this picture first I had to purchase the vintage globe and an airplane die.
To make this I took a 20x20 cm primed canvas.
Then I cut out some pages from a book and I placed on the canvas to see if they could cover properly the sides of the canvas.
I glued the pages on the canvas with decoupage glue. But first I put the book pages into a bowl filled with water to soften the papers.
I let it dry.
With a Sizzix embossing folder, as well as Tsukineko Memento (Rich Cocoa) and Ranger Distress (Tea Dye) inks I made a postcard picture.
I put a thin layer of modelling paste to the canvas then I glued the postcard on it.
I cut out the vintage globe twice. I painted the number 1. globe with Expresso Tsukineko Memento ink and I put a layer of Ranger Crackle Accents.
When it dried I coloured the oceans with Ranger Distress inks (Peacock Feathers, Broken China, Evergreen Bough). On the number 2. globe I coloured the continents with Tsukineko Memento (Bamboo Leaves) and Ranger Distress (Bundled Sage, Tea Dye) inks.
I cut out the continents from the number 2. globe and I glued them on the number 1. globe.
I painted the canvas with Ranger Distress inks.
I cut out the airplane, the car, the letters and the birds with my dies and the Sizzix Big Shot.
The Eiffel-tower was stamped and I cut it out with scissors.
What I used:
Memory Box, Flying Birds (98655)
Rayher decoupage glue
Schmincke modelling paste
Schmincke acrylic medium

And one more thing, with this canvas I am participating in a challenge on "A vintage journey" blog. So, fingers crossed :-)
