Hello and Happy Friday! Earlier this week I shared a Mixed Media canvas, using a favorite quote, on the UmWowStudio blog.
mixed media projects shouldn't be difficult or require complicated
techniques. The canvas I would like to share with you today uses basic
techniques, yet creates a unique and personalized project.
is the key to mixed media. Texture can be created by multiple mediums:
paint, ink, paste, gels, paper, stamps, stencils and 3D items. The
background of my canvas was created using paste, stencil, ad watercolor
Using the Checkerboard mask, apply
modeling paste to your pre-gesso'd canvas. Once the paste is dry,
randomly apply Shimmerz Inklingz to the canvas. Let the colors mix and
blend creating a beautiful, shimmery background.
Randomly stamp the background for contrast.
Prep your chipboard embellishments with gesso and let dry.
Paint with your favorite product. I used Shimmerz Inklingz and paints.
For more glitz, I added glitter to the inside section of each heart chip.
Finish off the edge of your canvas with washi tape and several strings of twine.
And this is it. Done just like that. Not complicated, but unique and personalized.
I hope you enjoyed by quote canvas today! Thanks for stopping by!
