Vivid mixed media canvas

Hello friends! Tetiana Komarova here! Today is my first time over here on the The Crafter’s Workshop Blog and I can not be more excited. I’m going to show you a simple way of creating a background for a mixed media canvas using alcohol inks and an amazing stencil 12*12″ called Poppy Field! Don’t be afraid to experiment with bright vibrant colours of inks!


Let’s start!

Create a gorgeous texture using a texture paste with sand and a stencil.

Paint this texture with alcohol inks when texture paste dried completely. Use alcohol blending solution to create some interesting combinations of colours

Add more colour using glaze.
