Dream Mixed Media Canvas

Hi Friends!

Today i have a Mixed media canvas, which is a Guest Design post at Lulupu - Craft Lounge .

Here's a look at my MM canvas. Oh yeah...Tutorial too :)

Took 9.5 by 11.5 inches primed flat canvas.

Took Dylusions Lemon zest in a palette and Peeled paint Distress stain dabbed in craftmat. Using separate wet wipes swipped these mists from top to bottom of canvas. This gives a neat coverage.

Then took a 5”x7 “ white cs and used Sizzix- TimHoltz mixmedia thinlits dies to diecut it diagonally.

Used Wendy Veicchi Embossing paste (translucent) and TimHoltz  Honeycomb stencil in the diagonal portion of cs. It gives such lovely sheen after drying.

When the paste is still wet, sprinkled generously Prima- Finnabair Mini artstones on it. Leave it to dry as such.

After drying, smooshed the versafine pad directly on the diecut areas and heat embossed it using Ranger Silver Embossing powder. Then mist the cs with LSG spray – Azure sea asters and sponged the edges with frayed burlap distress ink. And then it was matted with a pp, whose edges are distressed with Rich cocoa momento ink.

Using Sizzix –Pete Hughes, Magical butterfly die, diecut the butterfly from a white cs. Colored using Metallic Gelatos and heat embossed twice using Ranger’s UTEE clear. Prima junkyard metal zipper – Inspire, is smooshed with Picket fence stain is added as Butterfly body using foam adhesive.

A resin piece randomly colored using Prima Art alchemy paint– Steampunk copper is added on the matted cardstock with  ivory sisal at centre. Butterfly is then topped on it.

Few handmade florals are made using Sizzix- TH Tattered florals – diecut from pp, sponged with Shell pink, edges sponged with frayed burlap Distress ink, shaped and used pink rhinestones for centres.  Sizzix – TH Elegant flourishes die is used to diecut from a white cs, sponged slightly with frayed burlap DI. 
Leaves are from Sizzix Garden greens, diecut from pp, stamped with Bobunny script stamp randomly using Archival ink -sepia, sponged with Frayed burlap DI on edges.

TimHoltz word band is added to cs using natural hemp twine. Flowers, flourishes , leaves are arranged as per pic with few crocheted ribbon and white tulle. Stamped Kaisercraft stamp on a ivory cs and sponged with peeled paint DI and Archival sepia ink, added using foam adhesive.  Negative of leaf diecut is used to stencil at canvas corners using peeled paint ink. Same ink splatters finally on the canvas. Edges of the canvas is smooshed with vintage photo Distress stain for that final framed look. 

Hope you liked the stepwise instruction for the simple Layered MM canvas .

Fabulous mixed media canvas to celebrate Earth Day! I love that you provided us with your steps--using the earth stones in the translucent paste is a genius idea, and one I'm going to have to try! Just a beautiful butterfly, too! Love this!
