Happy Friday! Its been a fun collaboration week and now its blog hop time for Stampendous and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft. For today I created an 8x8 canvas with tons of mixed media layers!
I began by coating my canvas with Faber-Castell Gesso and then let that dry. Next I swiped on a heavy amount of Margarita Mix, Lavender, and Snow Cone gelatos in a semi grid pattern. Using a wet paintbrush I carefully spread out and slightly mixed the overlapping borders to create my background.
I used some Stampendous stencils to remove some of the gelato color with a baby wipe and then let that dry.
Next I added some stamping using my Cobalt Green Stamper's Big Brush pen with NK Studio Grunge and NK Studio Mish Mesh stamps from Stampendous.
Then I took another Stampendous stencil and added Gesso with a palette knife through the holes. While that was still wet I sprinkled on Turquoise UF Pearl Glitter from the Sumptuous Stack Art Elements kit and some Melon UF Pearl glitter and Teal Mica Fragments from the Fusion Stack Art Elements kit. The gesso not only added texture but also acted as an adhesive for the glitter and mica!
Finally I created a tag with a mini canvas pennant from Canvas Corp, colored it with Gelato, then stamped Life is Art with my Big Brush pen. This was attached with 3 in 1 glue from Beacon, and I added a clothespin from Canvas Corp, some ribbon from May Arts, and a flower from Petaloo.
Thanks for stopping by today!
