I tried my hand at mixed media this weekend. I don’t know if this is consider a true mixed media but I certainly had fun doing it. I wanted this to look a little old.
I used a 6″ x 6″ canvas from Close to my Heart, Mowed Lawn Distress Stain for the green color on the canvas and a little dry brushed Gesso. The rest is leftover odds and ends. The camera doesn’t pick up the glimmer mists. I used Log Cabin by Smooch Spritz and Primrose by Heidi Swapp on the canvas, flowers, lace trim, the chipboard heart and letters and jute twine. The little fan design in the corner was done with Glossy Black Embossing Paste by Dreamweaver and a stencil I had laying around. I used the Patina Paints by Vintaj on the little “Devoted” tag on the bottom but I didn’t like how it came out so I scraped it off. After I put it all together I dry brushed Gesso over everything.
If you have any questions please leave them in the comments below.
Thanks for stopping by, come back soon and stay awhile.
