DT: Hello Sunshine Mixed Media Canvas



This is Veronica from vicky's scrapping passion, sharing with you my next post for Craftwell. Currently, I'm spending some time in Galveston, Tx and decided to make a mixed media canvas as d├ęcor for our vacation home.

I used the sassy shell bag kit by Tonic, and since I was limited by what I brought, it was an easy choice for this cute canvas:


First, I added some crumbled aqua tissue paper using Clear Tar Gel, Golden to a plain canvas. Usually, I use ModPodge for this step, but the gel worked just fine. Then, I used a Finnabair stencil to add some blue ink, ColorBox/ Graphic45 to the dried tissue. In the mean time, I died cut the shell images I wanted to used using my SNAP and the specialty cardstock included in the kit.

Then, I did the fun part of spraying with gold sparkle spray the wooden mermaid clip, and some punched sand dollar pieces. I also added some Crystal Drops accents to the wooden shells, which I also sprayed when the drops where dried.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment on watercolor paper using archival ink. I distressed the hand-tore edges with the sparkle spray using a brush.
I tore some leftover sand motive printed paper, and added the strips to the bottom of the canvas. When dried, I added some clear Crystal drops accents to represent waves.
I added a net wrapping I had from some fruits, and used glossy accents glue and 3D zots to glue every piece to the canvas. Once assembled, I added randomly Crystal Drops in blue and clear, and once the dried, I sprayed randomly with the gold sparkle spray, and added some sequins, Simon says stamps using clear gloss.

Here is how the Mermaid clip works for adding a picture:

I am very happy with the final mixed media canvas and put it on a wall already.
