This time I’ll show you my mixed media project in the boho style. This is the subject of the work assigned to Daily ART Design Team, so this is a kind of challenge for me! I made a decorative plaque in intense colors with beautiful flowers. Do you want to know how to do it? I invite you to a small step-by-step tutorial

Of course, I began my boho style mixed media project with planning. I chose the elements that will be used in the project.

I painted my plaque with White Gesso.

There were two holes so that one could hang it. I do not need those. I covered the unnecessary holes with Fine Texture Paste to hide them, and let the paste dry.

Using a mask-plastic stencil, I applied Daily ART Stencil Paste in a bronze color. Stencil Paste has a beautiful, intense metallic color and dries very quickly. I used the Daily ART stencil. Then I took my embellishments and decorative details and put the whole composition with boards and flowers together.I also used sisal and small pieces of gauze. I glue everything with Gel Medium Matt. It is a transparent medium that glues very well on all kinds of surfaces.

I chose the colors of Spray Inks, which I associate with the style of boho. Intense pink – Carmine, strong turquoise – Emerald, a bit of Sepia (because I love it) and gold-brown shiny accents with Glimmer Ink Spray Bronze. I colored the whole composition with Mixed Media Spray Inks and water. I don’t spray the mist directly on the work, I only dispense the color with a brush and add water. I feel better control of color then.

After Spray Inks become dry, I added lighter accents with Daily ART White Gesso highlighted the edges with Acrylic Paint, black. To complete the boho style project I gently applied Bronze Patina, to add some shiny highlights.

Here we are.  Gently bleached colors, splashes with mists, flowers and a bow.

Have a nice day,
