The mixed media canvas madness continues...



Mixed-media-canvas-for-Lynnda

So you know my latest obsession is working on mixed media canvas....it's very therapeutic to throw paint and medium on a canvas and look at it the next day with fresh eyes. :) I know lots of people dry their canvasses with a heat gun but I like mine to dry naturally [okay...you got me...too lazy to take out the heat gun! *LOL*]


Making a little dent in the bloom stash department. The glitter you see is Ranger Distress Stickles in Rock Candy....my fave glass glitter effect...


The texture here was created with scrunched up wrapping tissue on the base, Golden fiber paste with a Chevron stencil and loads of paint - fuchsia, blue, green, yellow - I dabbed with a rag to remove excess paint...[see how the darker paint colours help to define the wrapping tissue]...I finished with PearlEx mixed with gum arabic for an iridescent finish.

Supplies: Graphic 45 patterned papers, Ranger Distress Stickles in rock candy and distress ink in Victorian Velvet, Golden fiber paste, Crafter's Workshop template, Prima leaves and canvas letters, Claudine Hellmuth gloss medium, Fontwerks stamp, crochet blooms, paint, stick pin, lace, ice-cream stick.

P/s: So I made this canvas for an online bloggy pal I'm meeting for lunch as this post goes live...you think she'll like it? *winks*
