Here i am with some inspiration to make a beautiful mixed media canvas. I called it Let Go.
I have used some random stuff i had and i am sure you can find some nice products and goodies in the random arts webshop to make a similar canvas!!
This is what i made:
Honestly the pictures dont show the colours too well. But, it is what it is.. If you are curious how i made it, you can read how, from here ;)
I started to write some stuff doen that was on my mind... i had to vent a bit ;) hence the name 'Let Go'. After this i glued down some tissuepaper with gel medium, Making some texture on the canvas. When it was dry i used a stencil with a script and some modeling paste... Due to the very hot weather here it was almost all dried up :(
After that, i covered it in black gesso and tied some rope around it. Then i glued some bottle caps down because i wanted some dimension.
i used some packaging and peeled of the top layer so it shows the … what's the word... the waves? I put some modeling paste in areas and glued some cheesecloth down. Then it was time to start decorating. I didnt think about it too much and just went with it. grabbed lots of stuff that i had in my stash like buttons, bottle caps. some metal embellishments, wooden shapes etc.
After this, of course more BLACK GESSO. I love that stuff!!
And when that was dry, its time to add colour. I used a green tone as the basecolour. I didnt worry about getting the green paint in every nook and cranny. I like the effect it gives with the black gesso. Like a shade or something.
After the green i went in with a really soft brown tone, almost a crème colour. I also used some rust pastes and of course waxes. Whats a mixed media canvas without the finnabair waxes! And this is the result:
