Hello my friends and happy Wednesday! Today I've decided to share my very first mixed media canvas. I have really been wanting to get into working with my Faber-Castell Gelatos but nervous to do so and after watching many videos on YouTube showing how to use them, I took the plunge! This canvas is a fun 6x6 size--not too overwhelming for the beginner like myself. I get all my canvases from Blick Art Supplies--I haven't found a better deal on open stock canvases anywhere. I was also inspired by Take The Challenge with Mou- May 2014. This month, Mou's challenge requires the use of 2 or more Design Memory Craft products on a handmade memory project. Here it is
I stamped this wonderful new image by Phyllis Harris from Unity Stamp Co called Trust the Creator. I stamped it onto tissue paper then secured down with a layer of mod podge under and over the girl. The sentiment I stamped directly onto the canvas last after blending and stamping my background.
Entering into Word Art Wednesday Challenge # 132- Anything Uplifting Goes and Divas By Design- Anything but a card Challenge.
The Design Memory Craft products used on this project are:
Faber-Castell Gelatos (background and girl)
Gold Metallic PITT Artist Pen (hair, bird and highlights on boots)
Fine Black Pen from Essential PITT Artist Pen Pack (outlining)
Water Brush from the Gelatos Gift Set (best value for sure!)
What do you think? I have much to learn and far to go, but I really enjoyed the process and the more I look at this one, the more I like it. Thank you so much for stopping by and allowing me to share my first mixed media canvas with you! Have a creative and blessed day!
