Mixed media Canvases

I have created some mixed Media Canvases using a heavy weight grey board and a circular MDF shape.

This first one I have painted acrylic blocking on the background and added interest over that using paints and stamps – I then added a stamp from Polkadoodles Absolute Vintage Collection Stamp Set, a sentiment and a circular metallic embellishment from my stash.

Live Today, Dream Tomorrow


Happy Saturday!

A canvas I would like to share with you today. I made this using pink shades of Pan Pastels and clear gesso for the background and coloured the dragonfly in with Violet and pastel pink Pan Pastel. I created texture in the background using texture paste and masks and white paint then added a sentiment. To finish it all got a layer of matt medium to seal.

Its the Little Things….


Hi there hope you have all had a lovely Easter holiday and not eaten too much chocolate lol
Today I have made a canvas inspired by the lovely Katy Leich

I have scraped some Violet Pan Pastels into clear Gesso to paint the background then I have made some homemade texture paste and ran it through circular masks. I then stamped out a sentiment and stamped an Indigo Blu butterfly onto some Clearly for Art modelling film and heat set them into a "flying" position then just popped it all together on the canvas.
