12x12 Canvas/Mixed Media
DecoArt has some GREAT products.
I created this 12x12 canvas using their paints and decoupage (with glitter).
There is a couple of things I love about their Americana paint.
~it comes in so many colors/shades. They actually have a flesh color and a flesh shade color for me to use on the faces I love to draw and paint. Make it super easy to color her.
~the matte finish is leaves is perfect to use other types of media's on top. I used a Prisma black watercolor pencil to outline her and a Faber Castel pen for the detail work on her eyes.
I have some chipboard frames in my stash-thought it would nicely frame my girl. I painted and stamped on it separately and then added to my canvas with thick glue.
I prepped my canvas by gluing on some hymn pages using Deco Art matte decoupage.
The silver dots you see on her dress are another Deco Art product called Paper Effects. It comes in several nice colors. I used silver for this project.
