Mixed Media “Fruit Basket” with Yulianna

Hello Gang! Yulianna Efremova here and I’m so excited to be with you this year as a Lindy’s Ambassador.  For this month’s project, I’m going to show you how to make a Mixed Media “Fruit Basket” that I’ve colored with Starburst Sprays from Lindy’s.

I wanted to make it easy for you to make something like this yourself, so I’ve filmed a video so you can see just what to do to make this at home.

BASIC PROCESS

  1. I took an empty basket. Cut off some of the kraft paper and made a base from it, then stuck  paper to the basket with a hot gun.
  2. Then I stuck fruit in random order
  3. Cover everything with white gesso
  4. Spay with Lindy’s Starbursts, add the darkest color around the outside
  5. Then cover the chipboard frame with spray and embossing powder
  6. Slightly darken the ends of the ribbon by covering them with a spray
  7. Finish!!!

The leaves were covered with a transition of sprays, I’ve used Starbursts: Hag’s Wart Orange, Witch’s Potion Purple, Alpine Ice RosePeony Scarlet RedMarigold Yellow OrangePonderosa Pines OliveWhale Watch Blue and Embossing Powder: Imperial Crown Purple  to create my basket.

You could create a similar piece with your favorite colors.
