Inspirational Mixed Media Plaque

Dream Big - Believe in yourself!

Hello, Peggy here to show you how I put together a deco plaque for my wall.
Todays supplies
  • Sin City Stamps
  • Ephemera background stamp
  • World Clock baloon stamp
  • Butterfly stamp
  • Dressform stamp
  • Believe sentiment stamp
  • Journal texture stamp
  • clay
  • Distres paint
  • Black/White  and plum crylic paint
  • Black stazon ink
  • gold embossing powder/heat tool
  • wooden plaque
  • Paper ephemera
I prepared my wooden plaque by painting it black. Then I spread shiny plum acrylic paint in the middle of my plaque and pressed my ephemera background stamp into the paint. I lifted my stamp to reveal my impressed image. I put this aside to dry. I pressed some premo clay into several stamps. I used the world clock, butterfly and dressform stamps pressing firmly for a good impression.

While my clay was baking, I was trying to decide weather to crackle or whiten the edges with a wash.
I decided on the later. After white washing my plaque I spayed water where my central background image was and wiped it clean. Now my clay is dry and ready to paint.
