Mixed media reverse canvas

Hi friends!

Lisa today with you to share my last mixed media project! I love playing with gesso, stencils and painting and this time I have a reverse canvas for you!

To start I brushed several coats of white gesso on the reverse side of a canvas. After that I glued some pieces of tissue paper with a gel medium.

Then I chose Lotus Stencil to make some design with Stone Effects Bone, and I brushed also this paint here and there to give more texture.

I made some stamps with black archival ink, and then I started coloring the background with a light blend of Siesta Colorations spray first, to follow with Peacock Feathers.

While it was drying I colored a chipboard with the color Velvet Fiji and later I got dirty it with a little bit of white gesso.

So I glued all my embellishments with tacky glue and I made big splatters with Velvet Cotton color.

Some close ups photos:

I used these AA products:

Lotus Stencil 6×9

That’s all for today!

Art Journal Pages by Lisa

Hi friends! Lisa here today to show you my last art journal pages, made with beautiful Velvet paints & Stencil by Art Anthology!

To start I brushed my pages with white gesso. Then I cutted some pieces of tissue paper, old book pages, scrapbook papers and washi taped and glued on the background with gel medium to make a collage

After with a spatula I applied white gesso to mix the background

I made some stamps with archival inks black and pink. Even if I had to repeat some of them after the coloring process I like to see some signs under the colors, it makes texture!

I chose Velvet Dimensional Paints (Boysenberry, Beyond the Reef and Cotton) and Sorbet Dimensional Paint Flamingo. I applied the colors directly with my fingers, they are so creamy and delicious!

After I applied the Cotton velvet paint to blend the background and to make some stencil. I used 6×9 Lotus from Art Anthology

I still made some stamps and I used a black watercolor pencil to make some marks. I used Cotton paint to make some splatters and I let it dry.

Finally I prepared some embellishments and I glued on my pages. Here some close up photos of my project

I used these Art Anthology products on my project:

Cotton Velvet 

Boysenberry Velvet

Beyond the Reef Velvet

Flamingo Sorbet

Lotus Stencil 6×9
