A Birdie Canvas

Hello, welcome to another blog post. I have been busy making quite a few crafts, from canvases to jars. When I am inspired I go with it and make as many  things as I can. This mini canvas I am sharing with you today is one of these creations.

I love the little birdie. I made him with a rubber stamped image colored with alcohol markers.

Paradise Found Mixed Media Layout by Farrel Tailor

Hi there AA fans, Farrel here today to share my newest project. I used a mixture of Colorations Sprays, Minx Shimmering Inks, Velvet Dimensional Paint and stencils. I also have a process video which will be located at the end of the blog. So sit back, relax and let me show you how I created my layout xx.

  1. To begin with I applied a thin coat of clear gesso to my patterned paper. Why do I do this you may ask? It is to seal the paper so that I can add my mediums to the paper without it buckling. Once dry I then using AA’s stencil Keyhole and Velvet Dimensional Paint – Brownie.

2. After drying the stenciled area with my heat tool, I then applied some clear crackle medium and dried again. I then sprayed the crackled area with water and using a paint brush I applied Siesta Key and Granny Smith Colorations Sprays.

3. I sprayed my flowers with water and then sprayed Colorations Spray – Sandcastle. I used my heat tool to dry the flowers.

4. I painted the flowers with Minx Shimmering Ink – Decadent using a paint brush. I also painted my chipboard title with the same ink.

5. I then adhered all my pieces to the layout along with mini prillz and art stones. And finished the layout off with some stamping.

I used these products on my project:

Stencil – Keyhole

Colorations Sprays – Siesta Key, Granny Smith, Sandcastle

Minx Shimmering Ink – Decadent

Velvet Dimensional Paint – Brownie
