I’ve got a small mixed media canvas for you this week using paint, stencils, paper, and modeling paste! It’s texture, texture, texture on the TCW blog!

After gessoing and drying the canvas, I mixed some turquoise using the Kale Smoothie, Spun Sugar, and Blue Jellybean acrylic paints, and then painted the canvas.
Mixing the lime green paint took some Lemon Custard, Kale Smoothie, Spun Sugar, and Iridescent Gold to get the right shade.
After mixing the green paint, I smeared it onto some dictionary pages, let them dry, and then tore them into strips.
I applied the strips to the canvas using the gel medium and let that dry. Then I stenciled Raspberry Sorbet through the Micro Dots stencil.
After that dried, I painted the sides, added some drippage, and the Number Scramble stencil using Black Licorice. I dried between layers so as not to smear the black paint.
Once that was totally dry, I wanted to bring the pink to the front so I mixed some Raspberry Sorbet with the White Pearl modeling paste and stenciled that onto the canvas using the Micro Dots stencil and a palette knife. And since I never waste paint, or in this case modeling paste, I scraped the remainder onto the four edges of the canvas. (Make sure to clean your stencil immediately so the paste doesn’t dry and ruin your stencil.)
I let that sit for a couple of hours to make sure the modeling paste was hardened and then I added the quote chip and the paper doll to the canvas. Before adhering the paper doll to the canvas, I first adhered it to some of the remaining dictionary paper from above and fussy cut it out.
