hi crafty people! This week I decided to create a mixed media canvas with a quote from a sheet of Kaisercraft Be-YOU-tiful paper and lots of awesome Gina's goodies, as well as a few metal bits from my stash.
After figuring out where I wanted everything and adding the strenciling,I primed the canvas and all the pieces with gesso, then glued them on. I then painted the entire project with gold acrylic paint before adding several different colours of mist. Some I dried between colours and others I didn't, to create a marbled effect is some spots.I also dabbed at some areas with a wad of paper towel to create a mottled effect and remove larger spots of mist. To define the edges a bit more, I dry brushed the pieces with black acrylic paint.
After everything was dry, I slid the quote into place (I had glued only the top of the arrow one side of the flowers, and only part of the key so this would be possible). I had a great time putting this together and getting messy with the mist and paint was so mcch fun! Have yourself a terrific weekend and be sure to find time to get messy!
