A Mixed Media Canvas

Hi there!

Tania here with you today to share a canvas and a photo tutorial.

Lots of yummy WOW Products Used :

Chicken Wire Piece - WOW1636
Fabulously You Title - WOW2464
Mini Background Panel 2 - WOW2182
Butterfly Elements - WOW1858
Messy Circle Frames - WOW2144


To begin with I firstly applied 2-3 different coloured acrylic paints with an old credit card.


Once this was dry (I sped up each step by drying off each layer with a heat tool)
I grabbed one of my stencils and randomly applied texture paste over the canvas.


I repeated the above process with the second stencil.


Next up I added all my chipboard pieces and adhered them to the canvas.


Then it was time to give it a nice thick coat of gesso, I applied the gesso with a sponge so it would give it more texture.


This next bit was where all the fun happened, I used an assortment of different 
sprays and sprayed them randomly over the canvas until I got the effect I was looking for. 
I then grabbed a Gold paint dabber and painted the title, the butterfly and the frame around my photo, and then dabbed the paint over different parts of the canvas.


To finish off the canvas I embellished it with lots of yummy blooms and an assortment of pearls.

Some close ups of my finished canvas!  






Well thats all from me today.

Thanks so much for stopping by and happy crafting
