Mixed media Canvas

 Hi Peeps,

Just a little fun with some mixed media ideas today.

I started with a 9x11 canvas. Found some lace,braid and ric rac in the stash and added it to the background with matt gel medium.

Don't worry what colour anything is because we cover it with white gesso.

When we have the lace and trims on, covered with white gesso and dry, we then add some colour.

I used Lindy's pigment powders called magicals. But you can use any colours from your stash, colourburst even your sprays. Be very light handed with any brand pigment powders as they are intense colour and go a very long way.

Now start planning your composition and gluing on your pieces.
I used a prima resin frame and made my own accents using prima moulds and paper clay.

If you use anything that your would like to change the colour on cover it with white gesso and let it dry.

I used thick cardboard from packaging to raise up the frame and the clock. I then used the flowers, medical guaze to hide the cardboard so you couldn't see it from the sides.

To finish off I dry brushed some alchemy paints onto the accents and flowers to make it the colour I wanted.

Thanks for looking
