Blue and green mixed media canvas

I made a mixed media canvas for a friend who attended a Finnabair's (Anna Dobrowska) workshop with me in Sweden.

We really liked the techniques Finnabair tought in the class and we created many mixed media canvases last year.

In this canvas, I used a lot of embellishments I collected during the past years.
I cannot explain in details the techniques because Finnabair teaches them in person during her workshops.

This time, instead of colouring the canvas with Luminarte Primary Elements, I used Dylusion sprays and Viva Decor wax.

I stamped the quote with an alphabet stamp set. I coloured the background paper with Dylusion sprays as well.

I will submit this canvas for the Anything goes challenge on Simon's Says Stamp blog.

Timeless Tuesday Challenge - create a shaped card

I have a card with a no-traditional shape for the Timeless Tuesday Challenge issued by Flourishes.
The floral image and the hummingbird are Flourish stamps. The sentiment is from a Papertrey set. I also stamped a frame ( a bit hidden under the flowers) with Waltzingmouse stamps. Due to the shape of the card,  I added a smaller nestabilities on the back with a message for a friend.

I coloured the images with Copic markers.
I really love how it turned out!

Mixed media canvas - painted cluster

I really love mixed media art and I love Paperartsy products and videos.
There is a new video on the Paper Artsy website that shows how to make a painted cluster.
Click HERE to see the video. I have also been on a Finnabair class last winter and I learned some of the techniques I used on this canvas.

I used small beads, buttons, air clay hearts and stars, brads and lace for the background. Then, I made a cluster with some die cut elements. I die cut the watch parts and cogs from plywood or foil tape (on a cardboard base). I used Glossy Accents, Crackle Accents, paints, Luminarte Primary Elements, embossing powders sprayed with shimmer mists while they were painted.
