A mixed media canvas! :)



GA October Canvas

Hello friends! :) Today I'm sharing a mixed media canvas I did for Gauche Alchemy which features my nephews and niece. :) I glued the story book page and the painted my "scene" with distress stains, inks, paint, crackle paint, stickles and embossing powder.


My bestie took one look at this and said that my proportions are all off....how come the kids have no bodies and have ice-cream sticks as legs?? Nephew #2 said they can't be ice-cream sticks because they are too short to hold ice-cream! I'm sure my bloggy friends know that these are portraits on easels right? *LOL*



There's some old music paper there which I covered with gesso, paint, ink and embossing powder for some awesome texture! :) I was inspired by the Scrapbookers Anonymous challenge to use bling.

Supplies: 12x12 canvas, Gauche Alchemy Acme kit, punchinella, paint, distress stains, distress inks, distress stickles in rock candy, embossing powder, Gauche Alchemy Mixed Media Color Kits, ice-cream sticks, rub-ons, Jenni Bowlin stickers, glossy accents, gel medium.

P/s: Have a fabulous weekend friends! Come play along with my guest Erin's faux letterpress challenge! :)

Oh I love the way you made mini easels with crowns-- your ideas are awesome-- the toy tyres in your earlier card was fantastic too-- I find myself eyeing my daughters toy cars-- hoping a wheel falls off!!

Of course they're easels... though now that you mention it, I can see them as disproportionate people! It's like the face/vase optical illusion!
