Tutorial - Mixed Media Canvas

Hello Everyone,

I've created mixed media canvas and would like to share with you tutorial for this. 

This is 10"*8" canvas.

I applied gesso and dried it completely. Gesso is a primer for colors, it does not allow colors to soak in canvas and shows perfect color of paint.

I stamped texture with Faber castell design memory craft clear stamp and black archival ink.

Next, I cut small amount of  Gelatos (cotton candy, Pistachio and Banana) in my plate, mixed them separately with Gel medium and applied randomly. Which gives this cool background.

I applied gesso on the surface again to set back this background and wanted to add some more layers. I spritzed water and soaked at some places, which added more texture.

In this picture, you will see I applied texture paste with bubble stencil. I colored the bubbles with blood orange Gelato. To give more depth I also used red PIIT pen at the edges.

I wanted to create my own embellishments. I colored paper with chalk board paint, dried it. Punched the flowers and made stitched lines on them with white pen. Aren't they awesome?

I stamped the flowers with Penny black stamp and black archival ink, colored them with Design memory craft Art grip pencils. These pencils are smooth and colors blend easily.
I fussy cut the flowers to attach on canvas.

The center piece of canvas is this lady Madam Dragonfly. I stamped this image with Deep red stamp and Black archival ink, colored her with Design Memory craft Art grip pencils.

And when I put together all,

I hope you liked my canvas and tutorial.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
