Greetings, Chris here, and I am back to show your how Creating a Mixed Media Canvas is Easy with Stamperia from Fotobella! Now, I admit that that I discovered Stamperia about a year or so ago and love to collect and play with their products! So I was super excited to see that Fotobella was now carrying their products. Also, I truly have to admit that Mixed Media sometimes scares the dickens out of me! I love the thought of just sitting and creating but am often under-whelmed with my finished project. But Stamperia made it so easy!
To recreate this project you will need the following Fotobella supplies
- Stamperia Clockwise paper pad
- Stamperia Pendulum Clock with Wings Thick Stencil
- Stamperia Gold Cream Paste
- Stamperia Carved Shapes for Bordure
- Buttons and More Galore- Desert Sky
Other Supplies needed
- Pallet knife, 8x8 canvas, window die cut, jute, distress ink , honeycomb die, butterfly punch
Creating Your Mixed Media Canvas
Start by covering your canvas with papers from the Stamperia Clockwise paper pad. Ink the edges of your canvas with Distress Inks. Next, lay Stamperia Pendulum Clock with Wings Thick Stencil over canvas. Apply Stamperia Gold Cream Paste onto stencil with pallet knife.
Gently remove stencil and wash. You can see how much impact and dimension the stenciled image added to my mixed media canvas!
Die cut honey comb shapes from Stamperia Clockwise paper pad and add to canvas to add additional dimension. Now, wrap jute around a die cut window (which was inked with distress inks) and add to left side of canvas.
Cut Tag from Stamperia Clockwise paper pad and add to canvas.
Paint Stamperia Carved Shapes for Bordure using gold ink and then distress with distress inks, and add to top of tag.
Sometimes its the little finishing touches touches that really “make” the projects. For this project I added 3 little finishes to add extra pizazz to the canvas.
Punch a butterfly from Stamperia Clockwise paper pad and add to window.
Next, add Buttons and More Galore- Desert Sky to tag.
Finally, punch holes along bottom right side of canvas and string jute through the holes.
I hope you are inspired to try your hand at a Mixed Media Project!
