Today I created a mixed media canvas to share with you.
I used lots of distress inks, pearlized mists, and Helmar adhesives.
I created the canvas background by gesso-ing first then using a distress ink technique with Ranger and Tim Holtz Inks and Perfect Pearls mists plus lots of water. Then I stamped the Stampavie "A Creative Life" sentiment and image on the canvas and heat embossed. (The set was a gift from my sweet friend Allie Gower) I also stamped the image on an old book page then watercolored it. I attached it to the canvas with Helmar Decoupage.
I used Helmar Gemstone glue to attach the tiny little glitter flowers and Helamr Decoupage to add the eggshell mosaic coblestone walk way.
I "blinged" up the sun with some Yellow Ranger Stickles and some Amber Want2Scrap Gemstones.
I would love to know what you think about my canvas, especially since I am really just a card artist. :)
Like the sentiment says though...."To live a creative life, we must loose our fear of being wrong".
