Today on the blog I am sharing a mixed media canvas that I created using one of the papers from the January Crop Kit.
From the piece of scrapbooking paper I fussy cut the circles, then using dimension tape I created the three layered circles.
To start the canvas I covered it with a layer of gesso creating texture as I went, no that you can actually see it in the finished photo.
The next step is to add even more texture, find a stencil and your texture paste then go.
To add colour to the background I used dylusion sprays white linen and vibrant turquoise and water.
I made sure that I dried the sprays completely and then activate them again with water. While the water was wet I rolled my roll of paper towel over the top to remove some of the colour and create this mottle effect.
Once the canvas was completely dry I drew on my stems and leaves and added the words.
