Create Mixed Media Canvas
Old paint brushes are given a new lift with this Create Mixed Media Canvas
Have you ever been so involved with a project that you forget to take pictures as you care creating? I think that is a good thing, it means that you are enjoying the creating process and not worried about how it will look in a photo.
This happened to me with this canvas. I know this is not perfect when I am trying to teach you how I created something, but it was good for me to spend time with my art.
I used my favorite mixed media techniques. You can view my other Mixed Media projects here:
I painted the blank canvas with black gesso then stenciled the swirls in the background.
For the Doily I sprayed it with different colors of spray ink to create this look.
The paint brushes were old ones that I had in my craft room, to prep them paint them with black gesso and then dry brush metallic colors.
I added flowers, jems and butterflies, (the butterflies are actually plastic bows from the dollar store that I cut off the ends and added beads)
I added the glitter word Create and outlined it in black. Then I dry brushed everything in a few metallic colors.
I love this mixed media, it inspires me in my craft room. What have you made for your craft room that inspires you?
