My newest mixed media medallion was inspired by Spellbinders Rose Medallion pendant from their A Gilded Life Collection. Beautiful on its own, the only adjustment I made was snipping off the loop at the top of the crown.
The base for my artwork is a 4"x4" cradled wood panel they are layered with gesso, acrylic paint and acrylic glazes.
Once completed, I began to gather and create embellishments that I could stack below and within the pendant. First up was die cutting gold craft foil into a gear shape using the Spellbinders Sprightly Sprocket die set.
I then created two loop and one circle from hand painted paper that I cut using a series of dies from Spellbinders Standard Circles Large and Small.
Echoing the metal in the pendant, I chose three metal embellishments to stack, one purchased, one found, and one vintage (from a watch)
Been hooked on Spellbinders Shoot! die set and used one of the dies to cut gold craft foil. Snipping off the feather ends of the arrows makes the die cuts perfect for this piece.
My favorite part comes next: gluing all the components together and watching the completed artwork unfold.
Sold. Thank you!
