Dream Mixed Media Canvas

Hello Crafters!

Today I want to show you how I made this Mixed Media Canvas using just a couple of stencils.

Supplies needed :

Note: I am a Design Team member for The Crafter’s Workshop; however, even though I use and love their products, all opinions are solely my own.

I started by covering the canvas with gesso. Then I randomly layered down pieces of tissue wrap paper. To glue the paper down I used Gel medium. I made sure to add Gel Medium also above the paper so that they would be properly sealed down.

When everything was sealed perfectly I added another layer of thin gesso. Then I grabbed the stencils and used modeling paste through them. I wanted the image to be really “heavy” so I used a lot of modeling paste and I didn’t smothered out.

I let the modeling paste air dry. I think this is so important because the heat tool will melt it and it will not hold its shape. Or maybe this is what I experienced. Maybe my heat tool is too strong and powerful…I don’t know, I just know that when I let the modeling paste air dry I love the result even more.

When the modeling paste was dry, the fun came in! It was time to add color! I choose my favorite color palette and started adding colors around the whole stenciled images. Feathers and Bricks. I also used a black pencil to highlight some part of the stencils.

I added a cluster with a photo and the title and also a couple of stickers to tell a story.
