Hi everyone! Did you know that TCW has Mixed Media Boards? They are so cool. You can use them for wet media, paint, ink, watercolor, paste, collage and everything in between! Today I used them for a mixed media canvas using the new TCW915 Hibiscus and TCW920 Tropical Fonds stencils designed by Carmen Medlin.
The Crafters Workshop provided me with stencils and mediums to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own because I do love to use them.
I started by adding TCW9001 White Gesso to the board. You don’t have to add gesso but I wanted to add some texture to the background. Next I started adding Tropical Fonds to the background starting with acrylic paint in various shades of green.
When the green paint dried I continued to add the stencil but with shades of blue acrylic paint.
I finished the background and added the Hibiscus flower to the board with TCW9005 Modeling Paste. I waited for the paste to dry and then I painted the flower in white gesso.
The gesso dried and I painted the flowers in shades of pink and green.
To finish the painting I took my favorite tool, sandpaper, and sanded the painting. I could have added white for highlights but it was so much fun to sand it. Here is the finished painting.
You can add a lot of paint to the boards. It will warp a little but when dry it lays completely flat. They are light weight and can be framed.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
