Dream Big Mixed Media Piece.

 I love this little wooden fold out blank, it was perfect for altering for my 13 year old daughter's birthday.
I used a mixed media technique on the front, which I had watched on Hochanda, from Indigoblu. Using 'Slap It On', I glued on a Tim Holtz Embossed card to either side of the foldout doors (specifically because it had a 13 in the corner.) I then layered various embellishments on top.
I painted the entire piece in black gesso.
Next I used various shades of Pebeo iridescent paints to paint over the embellishments, to create a rainbow effect.
 I stamped Trish Latimer's ' Dream Big' stamp and heat embossed it using white embossing powder. I then painted this again using acrylic and Pebeo iridescent paints.
I added a wooden crown embellishment and painted that too.
Finally, I created the background, using brushstrokes, stencilling through sequin waste, printing with a lid and the edge of an old store card, to give an art journal feel.
