Mixed Media Canvas

Well, I’ve been working on a canvas. And I think I have it “finished”. I was playing over at someone’s place last weekend and someone said I should try mixed media on a canvas.  I had this canvas that I had decoupaged paper to and never really loved it.  So I took it and did this:

butterfly on canvas

How cool is that?  I pulled out my stencils, gesso, clear tar gel, heavy gel and some paints and this is what I found. As luck would have it, the challenge this week at the Monday Challenge with Simon Says Stamp was on using pastes and stencils.  Texture is the challenge at Crafts for Eternity  so I want to enter it in that one as well.  What luck!

Stencils: Memory Box, Simon Says Stamp, Tim Holtz, Crafters Workshop
Stamps: Tim Holtz
Paints: Tim Holtz, Palmer Prism
Embelishments: flower stash, butterfly stash, wood die cut from Michael’s
Mediums: Liquitex (gesso), Golden (gels)
