'A Blank Canvas' March Edition

Hello and Happy Thursday!

Today, I am up on the Frog Dog Studio blog with my March Edition of 'A Blank Canvas'.   Each month, I share my creative process on how I transform a blank sheet of chipboard into a Mixed Media layout, using the current month's kit supplies!

Let's take a peek at my layout.


One of my current obsessions is creating with wax medium and this month was not exception.  I used the Texture Treads from the Limited Edition kit with wax and covered it with Lindy's Magicals.  A match made in heaven.

Before I get to my video tutorial, here are a couple of close-ups.




Here's my video.  I hope you enjoy my creative process.



I was so inspired by the rusting powder this month, I created a 2nd Mixed Media layout.


Here's a peek on how my background came to life.

Apply gesso to chipboard.  Dry.  Spray with several shades of Lindy's Spray.


Draw randomly shaped circles on background.  Paint.



Apply Lindy's Spray with brush, letting mist 'settle' in areas of circles.


Apply adhesive of choice and sprinkle rusting powder on top.  Follow directions on rusting powder to activate rusting.



Finish embellishing layout with stickers and washi tape.  For more interest, outline circles with black and white pens.




Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Wow Tina, both pieces are awesome! I dunno what that Texture Treads stuff is but I must get my hands on some because I LOVE what you did with the wax. I've wanted to play around with encaustic something or other for a while and have wax at home but haven't braved it yet. Totally inspired by your piece!
