Now for the process how I made this project.
I started this mixed media piece on a egg shaped chipboard piece which I fussy cut and gave it a coat of gesso. I then added layers and textures using chipboard pieces and cheesecloth. I gave it all a good coat of gesso and thoroughly dried it.

Then, I made the cross with 2 layers of chipboard, added gesso and then texture to it using a Prima Marketing Fading Floral stencil. I adhered it to the front using some gel medum, Once verything was dry, I started to color it using 3 Camel Artists acrylic paints - Cadmium Yellow Medium, Cobal Blue hue, Cadmium Yellow and Cadmium Orange. I mixed these colors with Tinted Metallic paint silver Oak to add a little shine and sparkle to this project.
Once everything was dry, I dry brushed my project with gesso and then added more highlights using Prima Metallique waxes - Vintage Gold and White Gold. The sentiment is handwritten by me and adhered using gel medium.That finishes my project and I hope you all find some inspiration in it. Thank you for stopping by and have a great day ahead.
