Wow… thank goodness WordPress told me LOL!!! I didn’t even notice! I started my blog 2 years ago today 🙂 Yesterday at The Cutting Garden it was mixed media day, we all got together and created canvasses. It was tons of fun! Today was my day off and I got up this morning still in the mixed media mode….
I created this canvas using My Mind’s Eye paper and stamps. I began by stamping all over tissue paper and then adhering it to the canvas. Then I got out my stencils and modeling paste and made a lovely raised pattern over top of the tissue paper.
Once that dried, I spritzed it with some country blue spray and some shimmer mist and began decorating. I cut out a heart and trimmed around it with lace. This is my idea of mixed media…. lace, flowers, butterflies and flourishes.
I smeared some Gesso in spots to give it a bit of a softer look. This was a very fun canvas to create! I love the idea of just doing what ever you feel like doing. If you haven’t had a chance to try to make one of this, I highly recommend it!
