My Helmar/ May Arts Mixed Media Canvas "Dare to Dream"


Hi Everyone!

Today is my day to post over at the Helmar blog and I thought I would share my project here too.
I am in love with K&Company's "Abrianna" stack but some of the prints are just too big for my cards.
I decided to use one of them for a mixed media canvas!
Here is my "Dare to Dream" piece, inspired by my friend Tracy Weinzapfel's canvases.


It is a special week  because...

For this project I used:
Helmar Decoupage
Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots,
Helmar Fabric Stiffener and Draping Liquid

I also used some of May Arts stunning wrinkled ribbon.
Check out Really Reasonable Ribbon...they carry lots of different colors of it! :)

Here are a couple of close-ups.



Other products used:
8"x10" stretched canvas
purple acrylic paint
K&Company's Abrianna Acetate Icons and Layered Accents.
Ranger Ink's Adirondack Alcohol Ink in Bottle, Butterscotch, Cloudy Blue, and Wild Plum.
Want2Scrap's Sage Green Pearls
Deja View's Wonderful Words Rub Ons
Plaid FolkArt paint
calligraphy pen and ink

You can see some of my "HOW TO'S" over at the Helmar blog. While you are there, you should really check out the awesome Helmar/ May Arts projects the other girls have created this week!
Then you should head over to the May Arts blog and see what they have been busy creating! You won't be disappointed!

I would love  to know what you think about my canvas before you go! :)
