Mixed media canvas - Fun Times

Hi fellow crafters

It's a gorgeous wind free day in Cape Town. Summer is certainly on its way.

This week I spent 2 days working on 10 mixed media canvasses with a client. I'll load those pics tomorrow. Today's canvas was a gift for my daughters SIL....I love working on these cause each one comes out so differently....

I always tend to start my background with torn scrapbooking paper which is applied with podge. When that dries I add some texture paste through a stencil . On this one I also used some diluted gesso over the entire base to tone the colours down. When that was dry I added some distress inks in reds and Browns for random colour 

This is a close up of the flowers I added. I sprayed some perfect pearls mist over selected areas on the canvas to hilite them

I also added lots of rub ons.

This is a gift I received from someone ages ago. I stamped the wording, cut it out with my circle Nestibility and glued it into the centre. Added some glossy accents over the top to create a dome.

And here is the finished piece. The wording was from a ready cut and glittered alphabet set I received ages ago. Somehow it was just the right colour for this piece.

That's it for today, hope you are all enjoying a fabulous Sunday.

As always........Remember to
