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 :)


  1. Wow Sue this is amazing, love the little cavities of the reverse side of the canvases really look amazing....love the brightness of the glimmer mist..fabulous !

  2. Really visually stunning ... the whole composition is so generous. Beautiful job Sue! xo
