Hello everyone! I'm Linsey and I'm thrilled to be sharing my very first guest design team project with you today! I had lots of fun creating this mixed media canvas board and it was so easy because all the different Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products mix and match so beautifully together! Here's what I did--
First, I covered my canvas board with a layer of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Gesso.
Next, I colored with a variety of Gelatos® Double Scoop® to create a colorful background with a beach and water feel, then spritzed the canvas with water and blended the color until I got the effect that I liked.
Now I wanted to add some sparkly texture to the "beach" with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Glass Bead Glitter Gel and a fun multi-circles stencil.
I then colored with Raspberry Gelatos® Double Scoop® and spritzed a bit more water from the top of the canvas and let it drip down.
Next, I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white tissue paper....
and adhered it down with a layer of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Gel Medium, then another on top of the sentiment.
Now, I needed to add more texture and interest with some stamps. And did you know that the Stamper's Big Brush Pens work for stamping? They sure do! I used the Light Cobalt Turquoise (#154) PITT® Artist Pen below....
And also some stamping with black and white inks...
Then I finished with a sprinkle of clear hot glue dots, beads and sequins so the eye might gravitate toward the sentiment more.
Here is my completed canvas! I framed the piece with a little Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® in Black Licorice, which sort of pulls together all of the elements within the canvas.
Thanks so much for spending some time with me today and allowing me to share my canvas! I hope you come away with a spark of inspiration to try your own mixed media art canvas too! Have a very creative day!
