Tranquality - Mixed media canvas

Hello Everyone,

I've new canvas to share with you. I rarely use black in my background surface..and I did it today..loving it with lavender ink.

I created collage in the background with  black design papers from Prima Optimist collection.

 I cut them in pieces and adhered them as collage with Modge Podge, this is one of my favourite technique to create background.

For chevron texture I used Crafters Workshop Stencil and texture paste.  I added Prima Mica flakes, glass beads and small square cuts from Picture wheel die for more interest.
I applied black gesso for this and when it dried I spritzed Lulu Lavender Fireworks Spray onto it.

I cut out Picture wheel with Sizzix die, on that I adhered one metal flower ...colored all this with black gesso and spritzed Lulu Lavender fireworks ink.
I used Sizzix Tattered flower die to make the flower in center.

All the edges are of small squares are highlighted with Faber Castell big brush pen -black. Lastly I applied Inka gold Violet to highlight some areas.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

  11. Beautiful work and great attention to details. I love that you included some beadwork, too. I haven't quite figured how I want to incorporate the beads into my handmade cards, but I do enjoy using any type of bead in jewelry making. The colors you selected and materials you used made everything come together beautifully.
