In Nature Mixed Media Canvas

Hello there my lovelies!!!! Well I am sure most of you would have seen the latest 3Quarter Designs release over the weekend – Seasons Palette…… and all I can say is WOW!!! I thought for this collection I would create a mixed media canvas and I can see a lot of layouts being created with this collection too….. just stunning!

I was planning on recording my process with this project but silly me forgot to charge my phone first and then I didn’t realise that the video had stopped recording…. oops. Anyway I shall give you a quick tutorial on my canvas – So I used a 5×7 inch canvas and covered it using the paper with Hydrangeas on it.

I used a palette knife to scrape some black gesso around the edges. I painted the film strip chipboard from the collection, my resin frame and metal butterfly with black gesso. For the frame and butterfly I used Art Alchemy Waxes to add some colour.

Using the same patterned paper, I tore 2 strips using the lighter part of the paper and inked with Distress Archival Inks and adhere to both sides of the film strip. I also cut the quote strip at the bottom of the paper and mounted them onto the “Pine” photo mats.

I used alcohol inks to add colour to my glass pebbles (gold mixative and Valencia) and inked my cheese cloth using Art Anthology’s Minx Shimmering Inks – Decadent. Then I added my flowers and art stones.

Thanks for dropping by and I will be back with another project soon

Embrace The Inner Queen Canvas – Dusty Attic

Hi there my lovelies!!!!

Recently I was shown the world of Powertex. ( A textile hardener) And straight away I loved it and thought I would share my very first project using Powertex and Dusty Attic. I would just like to add that I barely broke the surface in learning about this form of mixed media but hey we all have to start somewhere!!!

Embrace your inner queen by Farrel Tailor

I used LOTS of different mixed media projects to create this canvas including Finnabair Texture Paste (Metal Effect & Patina Effect), Finnabair Impasto Paint, Metallique Acrylic Paint, The Crafter’s Workshop stencils, Finnabair Art Stones and Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Squirts just to name a few.

The flowers I used are a mixture of Prima, Green Tara Flowers and some fabric ones I got years ago. I just love how this medium makes everything hard and this helps give texture.

I stenciled the background of the canvas with Ranger Crackle Medium and a stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop TCW833 Fantastical . Then I used Purple and Blue Chalk Spray by 13Arts. I also added a little bit of stamping to the stenciled area.

I covered all the chipboard with TCW9001 white gesso and then cut both frames in half. Once all adhere to the canvas, I used Ken Oliver colour burst powders on the chipboard as well as the 13ARts sprays.

I painted the back of the light globe with Art Alchemy Opal Magic paint and added some fibres, art stones and micro beads to finish it off.

I used a small square canvas and applied Ranger Crackle Paste focusing more around the edges. I used my heat tool to dry and then applied some powders and sprays in different green tones, then set a side to dry. I painted all my chipboard Marrakesh Trallis and Lacy Ornament in brown acrylic paint.

For the Heart I used Prima Patina Effect Paste. The wings I created using a mold and resin and applied the Patina paste to them as well. I used the bronze paste in the Patina effect paste set to highlight the chipboard and the wings.

Beautiful Moments Mixed Media Canvas

Hey Hey Everyone!!
Today is my turn over on the Sassy Scrappers Blog and I am sharing with you a mixed media canvas I created using 13arts papers and sprays along with Prima’s Color Philosophy Dye Inks. So let give you a quick tutorial in how I created this.

I have to apologise for the process photos…. we have just moved into our new house and the lighting isn’t the best.

I started off by applying modeling paste to my 5×7 inch canvas board and used a comb like tool to create the lined texture. I then applied 13arts Ayeeda Mists Pastel PinkLavender and caramel using a wet paint brush. I also used those sprays to splatter around the edges. Once dry, I then inked around the edges using Prima Color Philosophy Ink – Foggy Nights and with a wet paint brush just lightly went over the edges to create a shadow like effect.

I then cut 2 straws in half and adhered them to the canvas. Next to colour the cheesecloth, I inked my craft mat with Foggy Nights and sprayed with water then rubbed the cheesecloth in the ink and used my heat gun to dry and then adhered to the canvas.

I cut out a paper doily from the 13arts Fly Away pp Days and Nights and sprayed it using Ayeeda Mist Pastel Cobalt. I also used the Fly Away sticker sheet for the title which I trimmed and mounted onto white cardstock.

Next I added some gold wire from my stash and some flowers that I had lightly painted with Pastel Pink and Pastel Caramel spray and then splattered using Dylusions Black Marble spray.

Thanks for dropping by and look forward to sharing my next project with you very soon.
