I have been on a mixed media spree of late and Smoothfoam sheets are an amazing surface to create wallhangings to celebrate memories and showcase your favorite embellishments.
1″ x 6″ x 12″ Smoothfoam sheet
Assorted chipboard embellishments
Low-temp glue gun
Fluid acrylic paints
Metallic Lustre Cream Paints, Liquid Glass, Crackle Medium (from DecoArt)
Start by gluing a layer of chipboard elements to the Smoothfoam and then paint the entire surface with a coat of gesso.
Add the second layer of chipboard elements and coat this with gesso as well. Let everything dry well.
Layer colors on – starting with spray inks, then after that dries, paint areas with fluid acrylics, then let those dry. Create the last layer of color with the Metallic Lustre – I added bits and pieces of color all over the piece randomly.
Try adding Crackle Paint to a few of the pieces for some visual interest.
Add gloss to some pieces with Liquid Glass, then when it’s dry, accent it with Metallic Lustre.
