mixed media canvas
Today I will share with you a mixed media canvas I finished a few weeks ago. It is really four small canvases joined together ( hammer and nails and hubby here) then I have prepped it with brown paint, and proceeded to decorate and scrap on the reverse side, which creates four little cavities to use. I have gone for a very busy look here, but pulled it together with red velvet glimmer mist. Every thing was sprayed with this (with in reason) so that the embellishments and flowers work as a cohesive whole and do not clash. You can use up all your old flowers and trinkets, even chip shapes, if you spritz them with the glimmer mist. I love that I have been able to use product I have had for a long time, kind of like tiding up and creating at the same time :)
Paper Artist, I have been an artist of some sort or another all my life, with formal training at Art College. Cardmaking, scrapbooking and papercraft have now become my format for atistic expression for almost 20 years now.
