Mixed Media Canvas

Hello everyone thanks for taking the time to visit, I know how difficult it is to get to everyone and make time to craft so if I hadn't visited for a while, I'll be back soon.

I can't believe I've reached 70 followers! So thank you to every one of you, and as a little thank you, any one interested in a little gift, leave me a comment and I'll draw a name next Sunday.

Now onto my canvas, which is very colourful and so I'm entering it into Craft Stamper Make it Take it challenge.  All paints and glue are from DecoArt 

I completed covered the canvas in papers using DecouPage 


I used a doily and a dot stencil with Colbolt Turquiose Transluscent White Media Fluids and Magenta Media Mist to build up layers on the canvas. 

Using JOFY stamps from Paper Artsy and the same paint, I continued to add layers. Keeping to the same colours helps it all to blend. Just remember to wash your stamps immediately to prevent damage.


I drew my girl in pencil and added black acrylic ink for her hair. Her clothes are Hansa yellow Media fluid. Once the painting was finished she was outlined with a Fude pen in black. 


Lol! just laughing to myself,  as I'm writing this in my shed and there is a bird on the roof which sounds like it's moving to my music. It's a groovy bird :). 

Back to the canvas

I painted the flowers with Americana Acrylic in Red Violet. The leaves I painted with black and the words are from Tim Holtz.



Think I'm going to start naming my girls and so I'd like to introduce Lucy.

Well that's all for now, but pop back soon
