Hello everyone! Today I’m back with yet another mixed media little canvas. I’ve been having a lot of fun experimenting and playing around with a bunch of different products and I’m getting dragged more and more into “mixing different media”.
I got inspired by the moodboard for October over at Dusty Attic. Yellow is not really my color unless it’s a small amount on details so I thought it would be a really interesting challenge for me. I started building my background with a stencil and some Dazzlerz by Shimmerz.
I had this gorgeous quote chipboard piece by Dusty Attic that was perfect to be the focal point of this canvas. The only problem was that I wanted the center area to be fairly flat. To make that work I scraped off some of the back side of the chipboard to reduce it’s height. Then I painted over it with some more shimmers products and gelatos.
To frame the quote, I started building a lot of dimension at the border of the canvas. I added a bunch of things like modeling paste, bead gel, thread, flowers and colored them with sprays and gelatos.
So that was my little canvas, I really hope you got inspired to create something fun and messy.
