My Paris Love Tutorial

by Irit Shalom

This small tutorial is an example of Mixed Media project made over wood with no paper at all. All you need to make this project is a wooden shape, some stamps, one single stencil, gesso, some chipboards and a lot of patience. Due the long drying time this project is easy, but not so short.

Here we go!

Step 1:

Take your wooden heart and make some grid pencil lines. It’s really free hand lines, your choice. And that’s what it looks:


Step 2:

Take some leftover cardstock and make a kind of a mask that leaves one single grid spot uncovered.


Cover this wooden spot with a stencil and add white gesso over it. Let it dry for an hour or so.


Step 3:

Repeat step 1 and 2 for another part of the heart, using another part of the stencil

This is how it looks now


Step 4: Stamp the background stamps here and there over the uncovered parts, using black pigmented ink and clear embossing powder over it.



Step 6: Mist all piece with a mix of mists. Add a bit of red embossing powder on one of the parts (I added over the upper right corner)


Step 7: Using Octagon small stamps add stamped background over your small chipboard pieces with die black ink. Cover them with Glossy Accents and glue over the finished piece. Add a silver heart button on the corner covered with some gold glitter glue. Cover a few small chipboard butterflies with the same gold glitter glue and some with red glitter glue and glue them randomly over your art piece.
