upcycle computers into art with walnut ink and texture paste

Create a fun heartfelt mixed media panel using recycled materials and some pretty pink shimmering effects. In a few easy steps, you can create some stunning effects using a few lovely products from the Imagine stable. Take a look at how a few elements can be transformed using some of my favorite products in pink and red.

Step 1

On a piece of recycled cardboard add some pattern using a colored texture paste. Once the texture paste is dry sprinkle some Walnut Ink Crystals on top and mist with water. Leave to dry.

 Fireworks Sprays
Step 2

Color some light pink flowers using 3 colors of Fireworks Sprays. Mist some flowers with all the colors and some flowers with single colors. Leave to dry. See how beautiful the flowers shimmer.

Step 3

Paint a recycled computer fan with black gesso. Leave the gesso to dry and then mist the fan with Fireworks sprays and leave to dry for a beautiful shimmering effect.

Step 4

Assemble all your parts on the background. Adhere the colored fan, flowers, beads and a “Be Mine” heartfelt tag.
