A Mini Mixed Media Canvas

May 26, 2015

 

Hey guys and welcome back to my blog.  Well this week I have been one might busy crafter! what with DT commitments mounting up and this ever growing pile of pocket letters!! I tell you I will be crafting for a month of Sundays to catch up.  But boy is it fun.   So this week I had a chance to play with some of those gorgeous supplies from FPCS and a wee little canvas. I covered it with dictionary paper and then sat there staring at it for a good while....hoping that it would just scrap itself or waiting for inspiration to strike!! So I took a leap of faith (lol no pun intended) and tried my hand at some mixed media and a touch of finnebar....Now please be gentle with me this is not my usual style and I was taking one giant almighty step out of my comfort zone with this one...

 

 

I have remembered to take a few process pics along the way and here they are

 

 Above are some of the supplies I grabbed.  I also drew a rough outline on my canvas where I wanted my elements to go.

 

 

 I trimmed down an old zipper from my stash

 

 

 

 

 

and added a brick wall with modelling paste....

 

 

 

 

 

 

I added a touch of Lindy's Stamp Gang Gold Dubloon and then began laying everything out on the canvas and just fiddling a little bit here and there till I was happy with the layout.

 

 

 

 

  

I  then gesso-ed everything twice. 

 

 

 

While they were drying I added some more gesso to the canvas and some Lindy's Stamp Gang in Gossamer Gold, Dark Chocolate Truffle and Tibetan Poppy Teal.

 

 

 

 

 

and this was my first coat.  I thought it was a bit dull and needed more colour ....

So I added more Tibetan  Poppy Teal..

 

 

 

 

 

but it still felt like it needed something else....like it needed some warmth.  So I added some Autumn Maple Crimson and look at what happened....

 

 

 

I just love how it turned it ....it went this gorgeous purple with the Tibetan Poppy teal still bleeding through in places.... I actually have no real glamour shots to share this week, just these two...
