It's the little things.. a mixed media project

Hello everyone,

and welcome to another project for AALL & Create. Today I have used lollypop sticks to make a little wall decoration. I have used 10 sticks; 8 laid out together and two glued at the back across to keep them together.

And here is how:

After I glued the two sticks on the back of the front eight, I added texture paste with this stencil. I then added a layer of white gesso and after that dried I played with Infusions, Nuvo sparkling powders and some of the Cosmic Shimmer powders. 

After all that dried I added some stamping. I also added staples in every stick because of all the water I used and then heating with the heating tool the glue came undone. 

of course I had to tone it down with white paint and a brayer...

Next I cut this out and added green Versafine Clair ink..

I added clear and green embossing powder in separate layers. I like the result. 

I added more stamping and also white splatters with a paint pen. I also put some green ink over the white paint, not sure if I like it. 

Here I have added the die cut pieces. 

I decided to use one of these little girls as a focal point so I stamped her and coloured her with my Copic Markers. I also stamped the sentiment from the Puppy Toys set. 

And here is it all put together. I added more white paint with a dry brush method behind her to make her stand out more. You can still see all the texture and some of the colour. 

I hope you enjoyed my process. I have used the following AALL & Create products:
