Mixed Media Canvas & Process Video (with Altered Pages)

Hello friends and Happy October!  I am excited to share a fun mixed media project I created using several stencils, lots of heavy body acrylic paint and a couple different designs from Altered Pages!

I also made a video of my process you can find below or HERE.

I used the 3 stencils below as well as the white, gold, orange and bright pink in the Heavy Body Acrylic paint and Gel Medium in Clear.

                          

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

I also printed out 2 different digital & printable designs from Altered Pages.  The link to each design is at the end of the post!  I love the muted, vintage colors and images with birds, hearts and maps.  Those images inspired the stencils I selected to use.I started with a canvas that was already primed with gesso.  I added several shades of NeoColor crayons to add a light color and texture to the background.After the background dried, I cut out and tore lots of the Ephemera images, pieces of corrugated cardboard, kraft paper and other pieces to collage together.Using Gel Matte Medium, I adhered the pieces to the canvas, adding other bits of fabric, thread and paper. After painting on top of the collaged pieces, I added black ink and several of the stencils I chose. I added some gold, black and white inks around the canvas and a muslin/canvas rosette in the center, adding some gold paint around the edges. I stenciled a tag to hide inside a little polka dot bag, tucked under this rosette. Here are a few detail photos of the finished piece…

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope this inspired you to get creative with your own mixed media collage!
