A mixed media canvas for The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge


Dream-believe-love-mixed-media-canvas

So I was invited to be the guest designer at The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge blog this month. The challenge this month is to use ribbons, twines or fibers.


I started by pulling out base supplies I wanted to use for my mixed media canvas - The Crafter's Workshop stencils, Liquitex white opaque flakes medium, Silks acrylic glazes and this text paper from 7 Dots Studio. I find that limiting my colour combo on the onset of a project helps me focus a little more...[you know how bad my Shiny Object Syndrome is...*LOL*]


I usually pull out lots of things I want to incorporate on my canvas...sometimes forgetting that it's just a 6x6 canvas. *winks*


But I usually end up with very little on my project because I love white space. :)

Hope you find time to play along with The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. The sponsor this month is May Arts Ribbon. The winner get 3 spools of fall inspired ribbons!
