When You Need the Best All Purpose Mixed Media Medium - Best Glue Ever!

Hello and welcome to the blog today!  Shelly here, sharing a mixed media canvas using only ONE adhesive for every medium - BEST GLUE EVER - it's all you need for any project!

I began this project by brushing paint all over my canvas and then spritzing with a mist just a few shades darker than my paint.

I then squeezed a little Best Glue Ever in a glass dish and thinned with a little water -- this makes a PERFECT decoupage medium.  Using this medium, I added strips of torn book pages to my canvas and then added some streaks of paint over the top with my fingers.

I then added added some interest with a textured paint and stencil.  My background was completed by dipping the rim of a shot glass in paint and adding a circle detail.

Once the background was dry, I again used my Best Glue Ever / water mix to add a vintage photo to the canvas - - use a paint brush on canvas first, then over the top of your image.

Best Glue Ever dries completely clear so you can really use it on anything in crafting - the following embellishments on my canvas were added using Best Glue Ever:
  • Die Cut Cardstock Alphas
  • Metal stars (charm, brads with prongs cut off)
  • Acrylic Dew Drops from the Robin's Nest
  • Lasso detail made from twine

Best Glue Ever is your best mixed media friend -- it can be used on any surface and with all types of textures

I hope this post gets you thinking about different ways to use Best Glue Ever - - it is incredibly versatile and should be your GO-TO adhesive!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today - - have a creative week!
