Valentine Bingo Altered Canvas

Valentine’s Day is in the air…at least at The Cutting Cafe!  This week starts our valentine projects.  I chose to do an altered canvas with a photo of my god brother and my dog that he loves so much!  I used the Valentine’s Day Bingo Printable Stamps Set.  I used a background paper that has the bingo numbers on it, randomly added some texture paste, and some embellishments.  I love the way it turned out.

Here are a few more views…

My First Mixed Media Canvas!

9 Jun

I have been watching mixed media projects on YouTube for months and have been saying I am going to do one someday.  Well someday finally happened!  I did one for my dad for Father’s Day.  It was a process, but I am happy with the way it turned out for the most part.  I will start with showing you the photo of some of the elements I chose to use and the piece once I put the texture on and glued the elements on and covered it with gesso…

Once the three layers of gesso was dry, I painted it with acrylic paint and Lindy’s Stamp Gang, and Tattered Angels sprays.  The finished canvas looked like…

I used a lot of elements but did not use any flowers since it was for my dad and featured a little boy.  Here are a few close up photos of the gesso phase and the completed project.
