Mixed Media Love Canvas

Hi All,

Hubby left to US for presenting his Research paper and Little one is in Annual exam holidays, what better way to spend some quality time...Its always craft with endless music set on :)

This time, its with Mixed media canvas with my most favorite pic, taken on 2012 New year in Taiwan before our relocation to UAE. It was a surprise Professional outdoor Photoshoot arranged by our Chinese Friends and we had a great gala time posing at few lovely places at Tainan, that day.

Took a primed canvas of 8x12 size. Took tissue paper and stamped Kaisercraft's cherish stamp in Archival ink and crumbled it and added the single ply using modpodge, on the background diagonally on the canvas creating a texture.

Then applied honeycomb stencil using texture paste on either side of canvas to create texture followed by stamping honeycomb stencil using Archival ink.

Then took lime green mist and sprayed liberally around the edges and made it to spread and then followed emerald green and heat set it. On the sides of canvas too, tissue papers are added to create textures.

The central composition is made of a picture matted under that is pearlescent pink misted cheesecloth with a heart doily diecut. All are storebought florals with the mdf chipboard florals, leaves, flowers, butterfly which are primarily gessoed and misted with strawberry pink mists. Every spray is heat set before adding more color.

The quote is a computer generated which is highlighted using black gelatos around the edges. The title is also mdf diecut which is colored using lime green chalk ink and heat set it.
Finally added few prima sugardots, Freckled fawn heart wood veneers colored with pink chalk ink. Finished the canvas using some pink mist splashes and stamping black stain stamps in archival ink.

Hope you like my second try at canvas on this month.
