Sweet Summer

Hi everyone! Melissa here with a 12 x 12 mixed media layout for Gina's Designs.

 I love how the chipboard fits the summer season so well. There are some for the beach, backyard, a picnic, or camping. I also used one of my favorite items of Gina's, a beautifully cut daisy. I have used them on several projects. 

I prepped the all the chipboard with gesso. I used oil paint on all of them except the daisy, which is watercolor over modeling paste. I put some paste on and made lines in it with a straight pin.

I used pictures from the internet as references to paint the rest of the chipboard.

I added crackle paint on the lemon. I put some blue chalk on with a brush to show the cracks.

On the pitcher I added some glitter glass. To show lemonade pouring, I used texture from the stencil, yellow flowers, glitter, and rhinestones in a stream of glossy accents.

Thank you so much for looking, and I hope you can find a little time to create something today!
