Love never gives up

Love is the theme of my mixed media painting today.
A big broken heart which is still alive.
Pieces stitched together and
"love never gives up".


It is an mdf canvas with a heart from cardboard.


Scrapbooking papers and a red burlap were stuck on the heart.


 I used mold and clay for the label.


 I used crackle paint for the background.


 I also used stamps with inks, stencils with paint,


 stickers, cheesecloth, thread,


 metal elements which were rusted,


 or clay elements which were also rusted.


"You are loved forever"

Once upon a time there was a little fairy...

  Hello creative people!
Today I want to share with you my fairy tale.
Τhis  month, I am invited as a Guest Designer at the "Mixed Media World" challenge blog.
 My project is a mixed media painting on mdf board.
I like to make fairy tales while I create my projects. 
I don't know which comes first in my mind, the painting or the tale.



"Once upon a time there was a little fairy.
Every night she used to collect stars from the sky.
She would catch them with her net.
Every morning she game them to the people.
Most of them didn't understand that the present was a star, so they threw it away.
Only a few valued the gift and held it tight so that they did not lose it.
They are the ones who shine."  

 For the background I used modelling paste with a stencil (Crocko effect, Stamperia)


Then I paint it with white acrylic paint and I glued pieces of lace, 
tissue paper with music notes and cardboard.


I painted the background with Artex pigment powders.



I put a second mdf board behind the first one to make it look like a frame. 
I added texture with modelling paste and stamps.


The fairy, the heart and the round frame was made of ceramic powder and a mold (Blue Stars, Stamperia)
 

The stars was made of light clay. I used acrylic colours and goldpasta.



I also used threads, 3d balls, strass and a metal key to complete the composition.
