Mixed Media Canvas

Lately I have been addicted to mixed media canvas art.  The concept of telling a story thru art and design really inspires me.  So I purchased some canvases, Gesso, paint brushes and got to work.

Here’s what I came up with.

So first I painted the canvas with gesso.  Then I painted the entire canvas with green acrylic paint.  I used Mod Podge to glue down various pieces of paper.  I used the Very Vintage wheel and Staz-on and wheeled it all over the canvas. I used a pink, purple and yellow acrylic paint from my stash.  The key and various molds were made with a glue gun and the Mod Podge molds.

The lace, flower and beads were from my stash.

What did I learn – you can paint glue gun glue.  For me I need to have a theme or a story to make me happy about my canvas.  The biggest thing I learned was that Mixed Media has no rules.  When you finish it should be something that makes other happy, it should make you happy.

I’m not totally happy with it, but I learned so much with this first piece.  I dare you to take a piece of cardboard and see what you can come up with!!  Have fun – no rules!

Have a Magical Day!
