mix media peacock theme

Mix Media Inspiration: Peacock Theme



Hi friends,

I am back again, guests designing (GD) for ranganjali, today here with my new mix media creations. Peacock  theme has always inspired most of the creative people like me. I really like all the beautiful colours of peacock feathers. This work of mine is totally inspired from them.
This is how I made it…

I took a canvas board and did stenciling with embossing paste. You can use any stencil you like. Then I applied a thin coat of gesso. I placed a chipboard watch shape and applied a white crackle paste on it. I also applied glass beads gel on outer side of the chipboard shape.

I made a peacock body with paper-mache clay. The Peacock feathers are from Dusty Attic, available atRanganjali StoreDusty Attic makes most beautiful, delicate laser-cut chipboard designs. I painted them with acrylic paint in pearl metallic blue, lemon yellow, pearl metallic green and pearl metallic orange.

After this, I painted the background using waterproof inks from Camel colours. I have used foliage green, warm brown, light blue and light yellow ink with water spray. After all that dried, I lightly applied Inka Gold on all the surfaces.

I made some flowers and leaves using Spellbinders die. I coloured using Chipped Sapphire, Carved Pumpkin, and Mowed Lawn distress inks and clear embossed all of them.
I arranged all those flowers as shown in picture, applied Multimedia Matte Gel and sprinkled diamond dust
Lastly, I added chipboard cages embossed with gold embossing powder.

So, here is the final n close up pictures






The second mix media

The second mix media, I created is a notebook cover. I again used Dusty Attic’s peacock feather. In other material, I used corrugated sheet to cover the front. I used some cardboard piece and a thick thread to cover that cardboard piece with the whole cover. I also used a small piece of very thin net fabric. I added some small stones in the pockets created by the thread wrapping. Then I applied 

gesso over all of these

I applied black acrylic color all over, after gesso was dry. I have used sap green, blue, copper, golden, yellow acrylic colours with the dry brush shading technique. I kept reducing shade of the colours till I was satisfied with the final colour shades


Lastly, I added a peacock feather, and little flute which I have made with paper-mache and some shine stone

I hope you liked these and got inspired by my work. 


Thank you!
