Today I wanted to share a mixed media canvas I created. I had purchased the wooded door /porch from one of the craft stores and adhered it to a canvas. I used a brick stencil and moulding paste to create the bricks, glued some drywall tape down here and there for some texture. Primed the whole canvas with gesso. Allow to dry then dry brushed with paint. I distressed the door with a scratch tool. Dry brush a little more gesso for some hi lights. Allow to dry then I used inka gold in blue and green for shadows. Die cut your window and distress the window, bicycle, door handle and gate with paint, adhere to canvas. The couple in the window is from the Graphic 45 Mon Amour collection. I also used a piece of acetate on the window. The wreath and trees on the porch are from Tim Holtz which I sprayed with Tattered Angels glimmer mist in key lime pie. The Lily’s are from Heartfelt Creations Sunrise Lily collection. The tiny flowers on window, gate are from the Flowering Dogwood collection. The bird bath, wheelbarrow and grass are from the Wildwood Cottage collection. Critters and birds are from the Woodsy Wonderland collection.
Hope this inspires you to get creative and let your imagination run wild.
