Hi crafty friends!
I'm in the mixed media mood recently and today I want to share a new creation: Imagine Mixed Media Canvas. This canvas was created in the same technique as the last two canvases I shared with you. This technique is one of my favorite because it can transform anything to anything and basically it's easy to do but its effect is amazing!
Imagine Mixed Media Canvas
I started with adding texture with modeling paste and a stencil. You can see I also added chipboard corners for extra dimension.
Then I arranged my elements on the canvas. I went for the shabby chic look again with adorned frame and lots of flowers.
You probably guess what's the next step is... cover everything with gesso. This gives everything the same color more or less and primes all the materials for the next step. When you create a mixed media canvas you use metal, plastic, paper, fabric and clay and not all of them receive paint very well. That's why the gesso is crucial. It's not necessary to cover it completely just make sure you apply an even coat.
The next step is to spray the canvas with your colors of choice. I used light blue and copper. If you don't have sprays acrylic paints will do too. At this point after the sprays were dry I added some paper images. The last step was to add the chipboard title.
This Imagine Mixed Media Canvas will join the last two canvases I created on my wall. I hope you likes it and thanks for stopping by.

Are the large embellishments around the flowers and the frame chipboard? Also do you get the small frames and keys etc at a craft store? I know a lot of stuff is stuff that we save to use on our art. The blue with the copper is beautiful too! Thanks for letting me know that ALL of it has to be gessoed too!
The large swirls are chipboard, the smaller embellishments are metal and the frame and large embellishment on the left are from air clay which I made with molds. I get my metal embellishments from lots of sources some from the craft store, DIY store, garage sales and flea markets.
Thanks Alexandra dear!
