Mixed Media Jewelry Shelf - Genea's Gift

Hello beautiful souls,

It's that time of year when everyone is making their handmade gifts. I am really excited about the little mixed-media jewelry shelf I created for Christian. As pretty as piles of jewelry are on your night stand it's nice to hang them up on a pretty little holder. You can also use this holder for keys and other trinkets.

I started out with a scrap piece of wood. I gesso'ed the base and painted it with watercolors.

Next I began adding layers by inking on some of my favorite labyrinth stencils: Chartres, and Anasazi. I added some white inks with the Arabian Nights series stencils to create some layers.

Next I added some clear glittery embossing powder to create a little depth and sparkle. I finished off the design with a Metatron's Cube. I used some modeling paste, fluid acrylics, and metallic inks to give it a spacey metal feel.  Next I used a dremel to pre-drill some  some holes in the bottom of the shelf for my hooks, and then screwed them into the base. Voila! Instant wall art and jewelry shelf!

Being a bead making and jewelry designer it's exciting to make a mixed-media piece to tie all of the art together!

Happy Creating!

Love, light, and creativity,

xoxo Genea
