Mixed Media layers with DecoArt and Stampin Up


Lots of layers. Lots of love.

I started with sheets of Baptist hymnal. I used DecoArt matte medium to glue them down.  Then I applied a thin layer of gesso. Using the black archival ink, I stamped several Stampin Up butterflies on tissue paper, cut them out and glued them down with matte medium.

Using my fingers, I rubbed acrylic paint in overlapping layers. Green, yellow, pink, magenta from DecoArt Americana.  I colored in the butterflies with various markers.
I used some light texture paste and did some layering with some stencils.

I typed up Psalm 28:7, printed and glued onto the canvas with matte medium. I outlined each one with a black and lilac watercolor pencil.

After painting my white flower at the bottom left corner, I used various gelatos in several places.
I got some more stencils out and pushed some DecoArt Metallic wax thru in blue and violet.  It gives a beautiful shine!
 Once complete, I punched a couple of holes in the top and ran some sheer organza ribbon to hang the canvas.
 here's a close up showing some of the layering.  It's beautiful in person!!
