Mixed media "Ice Wall"

So today I thought I'd blog about this mixed media piece I just finished.  It was inspired by Kit and Clowder's august create and learn class.  I recently signed up for the mixed media class there and I am hooked! So here's a few details on how I put this together.

Materials used:

5 x 7 canvas
homemade texture paste
Mesh ribbon silver
sequins "ocean breeze" and double click skettles "peacock glitter & stream" from sosuzystamps.com
paper flowers
chipboard
copic airbrush
glitter glue "diamond"
Inka gold " Platin Platinum & Cobalt Blue"

Here I have my 5x7 canvas I primed with gesso and layed down my texture paste I used the image to gage where my snow should end. After waiting a day to let it dry good I added more textured paste to get more dimension and cover my canvas better.

After letting it dry for another day I took my copic airbrush and used the darkest color in all the ridges working my way out to the lightest color. I used silver inka gold over the peaks to give it a nice shine, I tried adding glossy glue to give it a slippery look but unfortunately I think mines has gone bad it had a yellow tint to it so once it was dry I ran more silver inka gold over it. I then glued my sequins and double-click skittles in place. After airbrushing the wall I used my image to gage where her shadow should be and airbrushed it into the snow. I then layed down my glitter glue to make it shimmer.
It was a last minute decision to add the flowers and ribbon to it, then had to add the chipboard because it was just to bare in that spot.

 Hope you enjoyed it! Thanks for stopping by!
