Sharing with you a mixed media canvas. This is inspired from the lovely mixed media of my dear bloggy friend Yvonne. I am marveled by the ease with which she executes such amazing mixed media project..long way to go for me. Happy with the result for now, would love to hear how you liked it.
For this canvas,
First I applied some lovely bits of tissue paper with gesso.
Then I stenciled with modeling paste to create the lovely damask texture on the canvas. It was a single border stencil, which i repeated multiple times to get the texture on entire canvas.
Then I applied some brown acrylic paint on the border, to distress the edges. Embellished with the bicycle, Eiffel tower, and Merilyn Monroe. Used a beautiful frame for her.
Though the embellishment matched, but I did not feel a cohesive look in the canvas. Did some stamping on the edges to add more depth to the canvas. Created the bunting from vegetable mesh and old magazine paper. Applied pink glitter in the frame and flowers. Did some more stamping and used rub ons.
I thought this is the final one now.
But then an idea stuck ! I colored the frame black with a white board marker and viola..got my focal point :)
Applied modge podge. Also used distress glitter and white mica flakes sent to me by Yvonne to complete the finishing :)
