As promised I am back to share my Mixed Media Canvas that I completed earlier in the week. It is actually inspired by the March Product Pick Challenge over at the Prima Blog. As you all know I just loooove Prima and eveything Mixed Media, so this is a real project of love.
The photograph was actually taken three days prior to Quentin’s hand being crushed and our prespectives on life changing forever. The canvas is my gift to Quentin for Easter, even though Candy has warned me that it is too good to go in his work office – which happens to be right beside a coal line and workshop (lots of the black gold floating around in the air).
This is what the background consists of in order (prior to the additional of the tulle, paper, flowers, etc):
Golden GAC-100 (to protect my work) Golden Gesso
Doily pieces attached with Golden Soft Gel (Semi-Gloss)
Misted Shimmerz sprays Light Molding Paste dots created with Prima stencil and palette knife Gesso swipes
Misted Shimmerz sprays
Blingz swipes Light Molding Paste pattern created with Prima stencil and palette knife
Splatters of Shimmerz sprays Gesso swipes
Golden Pearl Mica Flakes swipes
Swipe edges and tops of textures lightly with Ranger Archival Ink (Olive)
Now for some close-ups of the canvas and especially the background, which I am very proud of.
