This is my 8×8 mixed media canvas.. .
I totally enjoyed making this…
Here is how I did it…
start with caving the canvas with white gesso and then find some old straps of book pages and adhere them onto the canvas… using clear gesso..
use the stencil from a kit and white structure paste to add some texture to the background
cover the flowers from the kit with white gesso
I had a mdf window frame from creative embellishments (available in Thompson’s shop ) , cover with white gesso too
start thinking of your first layer… I used cheesecloth and corrugated card
Starr adding texture… I added sisal… sandy texture paste and polystyrene balls in different sizes
I cut out the sentiment from one of the card from the kit… I had to put it at the stage because I won’t be able to lift the window frame up later…
I had to cover the sentiment when I started adding colour…I enjoyed see purple creem-ez from the kit… I add the blob of colour and watered it down with water spray
continue till you happy with a shade and intensity of the colour
add some more flowers, cut out bird and sentiment from of of the cards
add black and gold splatter … I used Imagination Crafts starlight paint… so sparkly
happy crafting …
