Hello friends! Today I'm sharing a quick tutorial on how to create a vintage-inspired mixed media canvas.
I started with a 6x6 canvas panel, a piece of vintage-inspired patterned paper, a distressing tool and gesso. After distressing the edges of the patterned paper and adhering it to the panel, I applied gesso with some water to "tone" down the colours on the patterned paper.
Next, I applied Golden Fiber Paste with The Crafter's Workshop stencil. You can use any type of modeling paste you have. Personally I love the paper-like fiber texture of this paste. :)
After that, I took a paintbrush and started painting with Silks Acrylic Glazes. I used Mediterranean Blue and Emperor's Gold , pulling the colours from the patterned paper.
Then I embellished with my fave lace trims, blooms and pearls.
You can create more depth of texture with a thicker application of the paste. But I love the subtle sheen of the Silks Acrylic Glazes on a slightly raised surface.
You can get Silks Acrylic Glazes at the ColourArte store.
