Mixed Media Canvas

Starting a new venture in my paper crafts, mini canvas'. I've started larger canvas' before, but just was never happy with how they were turning out. My friend Camille makes the sweetest little canvas', so I was inspired by her to make some myself.

Lots of different materials were used on this. I started with a piece of chipboard and covered it with sticky back canvas(need more of that stuff!). Painted on a few coats of acrylic, then sponged ink for the base.

The two flowers were stamped onto tissue paper, then colored with alcohol markers, cut out then glued down with modge podge. I also added some crumpled up tissue to the corners, and inked over them when dry.

The heart border was punched, then I used it as a stencil, and went over it with colored stencil paste. I also added a few tiny buttons and some hemp twine. The sentiment was also stamped onto tissue paper and glued down. It smeared a bit from the glue, it was stamped with dye ink, not permanent ink. But it's alright! Rubber stamps are from Unity.

I gave this to my friend at work, and she thought it was very sweet, and that makes me happy!

I like the smaller scale of the canvas, this one measures 4" square. I made another last night that is 3" square, and I'll share that one later today. Completely different from this one.

Thanks so much for visiting!!
