Debbie Shares A Mixed Media Canvas

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Hi everyone!  Debbie here today to share with you a mixed media canvas I made using the 

I really love creating with a canvas.  The process is so unforgiving.  Make a mistake and it's easy to cover it up whether you use some molding paste, inks, sprays or paint.
I started off by covering my  6" x 6"canvas with some papers from the December kit.  I then covered the papers with some Faber Castell Gesso found in our Mixed Media Starter kit to tone down the colors a little.  Next I cut a square of the gold glitter tulle from the kit and glued it on top of my canvas.   I then used the Heidi Swapp Confetti stencil, found here in the store and applied some Golden Molding Paste from the Mixed Media Starter kit.  I randomly added some of the seed bead mix from the kit to my wet molding paste.  I applied some Golden Molding Past to the Maya Road Chipboard snowflakes.  

I used a Die Namics Scallop die on the piece of white glitter felt and then dipped a paint brush into the Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist - Forever Red and painted the felt scallop red.  You can see it in the picture above tucked under the gold vellum embellishment. 
I used the Heidi Swapp Gold Color shine on one of the Maya Road ruffled flowers.

To create the snow- like frame around my canvas, I applied Golden Molding Paste which I mixed with some coarse salt to give it a grainy effect.  I kept adding it around my frame to build it up and give it more dimension.

I love this month's Mixed Media Paper Kit!  

I really enjoyed creating my canvas and I hope that I have inspired you.  Next month I will share with you a step by step process for creating a beautiful canvas.
Thanks for stopping by!
