Dream Big Dreams... AMAZING Inspiration by Melissa Johnson #MakeThings

Good afternoon everyone! I am winding down this month with a little dose of inspiration for you, a mixed media painting that I created using collage, and some of my favorite Amazing Casting Products

I love doing these types of mixed media paintings. They are simple, fun, and look great when finished off with a nice thick layer of Amazing Clear Cast Resin. I like to start with some collage on a gesso board. For this project I used napkins, a few Gelli® print pieces, and some wrapping paper.

Then I chose a giraffe silhouette to mask over the collage.

I painted around the mask, then added some gold Alumidust and red Alumilite dye. I also added some stamping and scribbles in the background. 

And here is the finished product, with a coat of Amazing Clear Cast on top!
