Inspire Wall Decor

Hello lovelies. Shanna here and I am sharing a wall decor project I made. I wanted to create something grungy but creative and inspiring for myself.

So I started with some paper that I primed with gesso. The tape helps it stay flat due to the amount of medium I plan on putting on the paper.

I used some Raw Umber mixed with water to create a wash. 

So this is how it looked. Let the wash dry before moving to the next step.

Then I went in around the edges with a rusty looking color and let it dry. 

Then I went over the whole thing with a Crackle Effect and let it dry. This has to air dry. It can mess up the effect if you use a heat tool.

Then I went over with some white gesso and then bam! look at the crackle. While this dries I also painted my wings. 

Then I used a stencil with some texture paste over my paper. 

I spread the texture paste to make it look a little more natural. Let it dry or heat set. Then I combined the two colors I originally painted with and mixed them with a glazing medium. Then paint it over your paper. 

Use a baby wipe to remove after let it sit for just a second. Wipe off as much as you want. 

I used some gelatos over the wings and a little water to mix the colors. 

I used VersaMark watermark ink and a stamp in the wings, then sprinkled with some gold detail embossing powder. 

Then heat set the wings. I love this look. 

I decided to go ahead with a crown and randomly smoothed Watermark ink on the crown and sprinkled Gold detail with it. 

Then I just layered everything how I wanted it on my piece. Check out the close ups of my creation below. 

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed following along with how I created this piece of wall decor. Make sure you come back daily for more inspiration and how-to posts from the rest of the team.
