A canvas for Libby

A mixed media canvas for Libby. I primed the canvas with Gesso, then used my Crafters Workshop 12x12 brick template and misted with Tattered Angels mists, Candy apple red and turquoise blue. I then cut a piece of 12x12 tissue paper, scrumpled it up and applied it to canvas with mod podge. I also stamped two pieces of tissue with the rose and lampost stamps from Kaisercraft and applied them with mod podge.When tissue paper was dry I used the brick template again and added to texture paste.I then attached pic and embellies.The large white flower is from Manor House Creations, the blue flower is from Kaiser, as are the two white resin flowers. The crochet flower behind large white flower is anonymous (can't remember) I then used canvas to print the journalling...."she dreamed she could and she did", (borrowed from one of Julie Wink's layouts ) cut it out, frayed the edges, and marked around edges with an acid free black pen.And that, my friends, is that. Thanks for looking and have a fantastic day!!

Hi Cheryl. This is a lovely mixed media piece. It's so interesting to read about the process to achieve this arty look. Libby is a lucky girl to be the recipient :)
