Scraps of Elegance Mixed Media Canvas

Hello Friends-
Today I have a fun canvas project to share. I created this project with the July Scraps of Elegance Kit "Sunshine and Sweet Tea"
If you missed seeing the kit on my blog or facebook you can hop over to our online store and find it HERE

I used a flat canvas as my base and covered it in gesso, then applied Tim Holtz Tissue paper torn and modge podged randomly throughout the background. I then unwound string and placed it all over the background, covering it in gesso then a layer of Opal Magic Pink-Blue Art Alchemy found in the main kit this month. I then went over different areas with Gelatos in Raspberry and Metallic Blueberry. We have a wide variety of Gelatos in our shop you can find the colors I used HERE.

I used Primas Art Extravagance White Crackle paste on the edges before applying the gelatos and paint.

We carry Heartfelt Creations Daisy Patch Flower Stamps in the shop HERE.  I stamped them on papers in the Main Kit and then added color with Gelatos. I also colored some of the Minnie Pearl Prills found in white then colored them with Lindys Mist in California Poppy Gold. You can find the prills I used HERE.

I was inspired by my friend Lisa Gregory to emboss my Prima Forest Leaves dies with Lindys. I used Midnight Gold, Cosmic Blue Violet, Hyacinth Blue Jade, Merry Go Round Green and Desert Moon Turqoise. I basically just pressed each leaf onto an embossing pad then sprinkled different colors on them to mix them together.

The center jar is a Blue Fern Studios Floral Jars Chipboard found in the Elements Add On HERE. I embossed this as well with my favorite Stampendous Encrusted Jewels in Purple. If you have not tried these embossing powders I highly recommend them. You can find some HERE. I also used some glass beads and prills to fill up the jar.

The bird is from the BoBunny Butterfly Kisses Printed Chipboard found in the Main Kit. I covered it in Prills and Watermelon Glitter from Blue Fern Studios Imagine Ink. This glitter was found in our Elements Add On as well. Everything was edged in Tea Dye Distress Ink found in the Color Add On HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!
