Mixed Media Canvas

Good morning ScraPerfect fans! Kim here today to share with you my next design team project. This time I have created a mixed media canvas using lots of ScraPerfect products, so let's get started!

I started off with a 3 inch by 9 inch canvas. I love the elongated shape of this canvas, and that is what gave me the idea to paint a wing on it, its funny how things inspire us!

I drew a sketch of a wing and then used some Prima Art Alchemy paints, layering on each colour and drying each layer in between.  I started with a green gold tone, then layered on some blues and pinks on top of that. After the paints were dry, I got out my watercolour pencils and started to give some highlights and shadows to add depth to the piece.

Once I was happy with the look of the wing, it was time to play with my Best Glue Ever. I also used the No Clog Writing Large Cap to put on top of my glue bottle, so I could go around the areas of the wing that I wanted to highlight with the foil. The great thing about this glue is that you don't need much of it at all! It only takes a tiny amount of glue to make the foils stick, and using the writing cap is a great way to achieve this.  Once the glue was dry, but still tacky to the touch, that is when you can play with the foil.

 I used the Crimson Rain, Turquoise Rain and the Blue transfer foils from the Small Combo Set which you can find here in the ScraPerfect store. I just placed the foils randomly all over the wing, I love how it came out and added not only sparkle, but also lots of dimension as well.

Here is a close up of the wing and the lovely texture from the transfer foils. When everything was dry, I gave the whole canvas a coat of clear gesso to seal everything in.

I am super happy how this came out. The ScraPerfect products really helped me out  in creating this piece of art.

I hope you have enjoyed my project and tutorial today. Please check out the ScraPerfect store for all the items I have used on my project and please also visit my blog HERE for more information as well.
