Mixed Media Canvas


Created for the Wednesday Stamper Challenge. I painted the canvas with acrylic paints - Blue, Cream, Gold and a little Raisin. Next I stamped the background onto tissue paper using StazOn black and applied this to the canvas using Future floor polish (this makes the tissue paper transparent when applied). The canvas was then sprayed randonly with a little Lustre Spray in Blue & Gold. Next the collage image was applied. I then added a little more cream acrylic where the words were to go, and randomly around the collage image. The words were cut out and edegd with Distress Ink in Faded Jeans. Finally, Opals EP were applied around the edges in Bubblegum Blue.

Rachel, just reading the description of how you did this gorgeous piece has me so excited. Tomorrow I'm going to try to duplicate your technique with my own images, background, etc. What a wonderful tutorial.
I'm pretty sure I have all the ingredients. Beautiful piece.
