Gratitude wall decor - Prima Marketing


Hello there! Yesterday Prima's blog was filled with mixed media inspiration! You can see the original post here (link). All the projects were connected with Thanksgiving in one way or the other and this canvas I did for the post is no exception.


We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Finland. Or if we do it's more of a harvest fest than anything. So when I think about Thanksgiving I’m also thinking about autumn and rich colors. Gold, cherry, wine red, orange… Those rich leaf tones that color the trees and ground before snow fall.

What's great, was that the blooms from the A Victorian Christmas fitted the palette I had in mind perfectly! They have those rich, cherry and wine colors as well as gold. To get a touch of orange in there, I used Color Bloom sprays and colored some mulberry roses. The Archival Cast heart is colored using the shimmering Mica. What’s fun with mixed media – you don’t need to limit your choices of colors nor mediums! 


Can you see what I used to get my décor piece framed instantly? It’s Carte Blanche wood panel flipped and used like a shadow box!

If you want to see how I created the piece, please watch the video below! 


Thank you for stopping by today! I'm truly grateful for each and every visit and comment and thought! Thank you!
