I have a mixed media canvas for you today.
20cm square treated canvas - this means that you do not need to apply gesso before adding anything to the canvas.
I started by popping some CS Muti-Tex Powder onto my Craft Sheet. I added some water and a little CS Dries Clear Glue and gave it a good mix. I then spread it through the Dutch Doobadoo Wavy Stripes Mask along the left hand side of my canvas. I dried it using a Heat Tool.
I cut the Spellbinders Cascading Circles Die out of some scrap card and added it as shown using CS Glue.
I added some Crochet Ribbon and some Ric Rac Ribbon - I secured this using Ranger Distress Collage Medium. At this point I put it aside to dry.
I gathered together various embellishments - Buttons, Dazzler and Dazzler Setting, Paper Flowers, Paper Clay Embellishments that I had made ahead of time using Paper Clay and Silicone Moulds, Metal Leaves and a die cut from the Spellbinders Venetian Accents Die Set.
Once my ribbon was securely adhered, I added my embellishments. I also added some more Multi-Tex through the Vintage Diamond Mini Stencil, Splattered Mini Stencil and the Heart Cluster Mini Stencil (see if you can spot where I used those!). I also added a little more Ric Rac Ribbon. I put it aside to dry again.
Once all embellishments were secure, I painted the whole lot with CS White Gesso. I used one of the new Craft Consortium Brushes - I highly recommend those, really lovely to use. I gave some areas a second coat where necessary.
Once everything was sufficiently white and dry, I spritzed with Phill Martin CS Titanium Mister and with CS Mallow Blush Mister. Once dry, I added Phill Martin CS Copper Gilding Wax.
John Lockwood's Pierced Tag Sentiments Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I trimmed down, split it int sections and edged with the Jet Black Archival Ink. I added it to my canvas using 3D Foam and a little CS Glue.
