Hi there! Hope you are having a great Thursday! I have the day off from work so I decided I would create this mixed media canvas featuring a photo of sweet Meredith and Griffin :) I pulled out a few of my favorite products and had lots of fun!
This project started out as something VERY different than the outcome. The canvas was originally covered with collaged tissue paper, inks and the photo that I started a few weeks ago. I didn't like the way it was looking and lost my mojo so I set it aside until today.
I decided to completely change it's course. I applied a variety of texture pastes, spreading around the canvas with an assortment of texture tools. Once dry, I painted on a THICK layer of white acrylic paint. Once the paint was dry, the fun began as I colored and embellished the canvas.
I stamped a sentiment from MFT Clearly Sentimental about You on a die cut made using Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers STAX. The little banner was made using Die-namics Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX.
I applied a small amount of gesso on a few metal embellishments and adhered a little sentiment light bulb to a fabric butterfly. I painted the Blue Fern Studios Organic Vine chipboard piece with white acrylic paint.
For color inspiration, I joined along with The Play Date Cafe:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)
