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.
