Today we are back with a mixed media canvas tutorial by Abby.
“This is a mixed media canvas that not only represents the color I love most, purple, but it also showcases some products from companies that I love and use in my daily crafting along with some of my favorite techniques and textures. “
What you will need:
- Burlap Canvas
- Sprays/Glimmer Mists (colors of your choice)
- Embossing Powder/Perfect Medium
- Flower Soft
- Distress Tool
- Ribbons/Trims of your choice
- Letters (I used a die but any type will work)
- Adhesive of your choice
- Additional embellishments of your choice
Spray your burlap canvas with your choice of sprays in the colors you’ve chosen.
Next I cut my letters and used some clear embossing on them to give them a glossy look. I then took a doodling pen to outline the letters.
I had a stenciled image left over from another project so I used my distress tool to fray the edges a bit.
I wanted to create lots of texture on this heart tin so I covered it with Perfect Medium, then sprinkled it with a mixture of clear embossing powder and some Magicals from Lindys Stamp Gang.
To give the wooden letter “P” some added texture, I covered it with some adhesive and covered it with the flower soft.
Once all the items listed above were dry and ready to use, I began creating the layers for my canvas. This is where creative play comes in, my favorite part. I used some jute ribbon to create a hanger for the canvas. This is not only a way to showcase my favorite color, it’s also a great way to show all the techniques and products that I love most as a decorative display in my craft room.
We hope you are inspired by this great mixed media tutorial,
