Hi everyone, Mou here with a tutorial for a layered mixed media decor piece perfect for the Holidays!
Before I walk you through the steps, let me list the supplies.

Gelatos® Colors -
Textural Accents -
- Gel Medium
- Glass Bead Glitter Gel
- Mixed Media Paper Stencils (Faith)

Other - 5x7 inches canvas, silk leaves, thread, chipboard, palette, paper trimmer, scissors, heat tool (optional)
Rub Gelatos colors Iridescents Blue Moon and Odyssey generously on 5x7 inches canvas and blend with your fingers or a smudge sponge. Seal with a top coat of Gel Medium applied lightly with a silicone spatula and let dry.
Layer the feather stencil from the Mixed Media Paper Stencils (Faith) near the right edge of the canvas and apply Whipped Spackle with palette knife. Let dry.
Rub a little Gelatos color Blueberry around the feather design and blend with water. Let dry.
Pick up a slight bit of Texture Luxe Gold and gently rub over and around the feather.
Color a 2.5x5 inches chipboard with Gelatos colors Mars and Iced Rose. Blend the colors with Gesso. Let dry.
Mix three parts Glass Bead Glitter Gel and one part Texture Luxe Gold thoroughly in a palette.
Apply the mixed medium through the Sing His Praise stencil from the Faith collection on the colored chipboard. Let dry.
Apply dots around the stenciled phrase on the chipboard with Texture Gems Gold. Let it dry.
Color a 4 x 6 inch chipboard with Gelatos color Boysenberry. Apply Gelatos Color Iridescents Odyssey through the floral stencil, also from the Faith collection.
Trim the chipboard into two pieces - 2.75 x 5.25 inches and 0.75 x 3 inches.
Now, let's assemble the pieces on the canvas.
Cut some 18 inches of thread and loosely wrap around your palm. Pull it out and attach near the bottom left of the canvas with Gel Medium.
Attach the 2.75 x 5.25 inches chipboard piece on top of the thread layer as shown.
Layer a pair of silk leaves so they extend beyond the canvas on top of the chipboard piece.
Mount the Sing His Praise chipboard on top with Gel Medium.
Add the 0.75 x 3 inch strip below the Sing His Praise chipboard.
Apply some more Texture Luxe Gold through the flower stencil around the canvas to finish.
