Hobbykunst has got some really sweet frames in MDF. This is one of the frames, decorated with chalk paint and concrete, together with a hint of rust.
The frame was first painted in light blue chalk paint. Then I added concrete paste. This paste is soft to work with, as thick paint, and easy to spread with a sponge or paintbrush. When the concrete paste dries, it hardens, and it is good for adding other paints, mists or mixed media layers on the top.
The background inside the frame, is a patterned paper from
Prima's collection "French Riviera" - Journees De Reves et Aventures. This collection is a collection I have used a lot. This was my last paper from all the piles of paper from this collection.
I have created the mixed media picture in layers. I have used Kaisermists on the background paper, and stamped onto the misted paper with background word stamp from Kaisercraft and a ruler stamp from Technique Tuesday - Measure Up. I used Archival ink for the stamping, as it is not water soluble.
Then I have added layers with micro beads, metal, computer parts, painted with rust and copper paint. There are also some copper buttons mixed with Prima and Mathia flowers.
