Fairy Mixed Media Canvas

Hey Crafty Friends Phyllis here today to share with you my latest Mixed Media Canvas!

I wanted to use pastel colors this time with some fun Art Anthology products!

Most of my projects aren’t planned and I really don’t have any idea how it’s going to turn out.  I usually start out with figuring out a color combo and then go from there!

Art Anthology dimensional paints and sprays are so much fun to create with,  I love the texture of the dimensional paints and of course love the glitter for a touch of sparkle!

I used Art Anthology’s Such a Drip Stencil for interest and texture using MUD texture paste!

I hope you are inspired to try some Amazing Art Anthology products!  They are so fun to create with!

I also have a Snapguide tutorial below so you can see how I created the background for this Mixed Media Canvas!

I Will Always Love You…


Hey, there! This is Robin Redd, (a.k.a. RockinReddRobin!) I’m here to share with you a simple 11” x 14” canvas. I started with Fairy, Peony, Sunbeam and Mermaid Dimensional Crystals.


One color at a time, I put dollops of color on the canvas and spread it out with a straight edge.




I wanted to add some lighter colors, so I just added some Gesso to the colors I already had to soften them up.


I added those colors to the canvas the same way, until it was completely covered.


I cut out a phrase from sticker paper using my Silhouette Cameo and placed the alphabet stickers onto my canvas.


I, gently, applied white paint over the sticker letters to help prevent the white paint from seeping under the stickers.


Then, I completely covered the canvas with white paint.


Once the paint was dry, I peeled away the alphabet stickers.


Although, this was the look I was going for, I wanted the letters to ‘pop’ a bit more.


With some advice from my fellow Dream Teammates, I highlighted the letters with a black Stabilo pencil.



I made this to send to my daughter who has moved away from home in California to live in Iowa! Just a little reminder, to her, that however far away, I will always love her.

I hope I’ve inspired you to make something today!

Until next time…
