Wedding Canvas with Lindy's Stamp Gang

I wanted to share with you this mixed media canvas I created for a newlywed couple.
I used lots of layers of diecuts and gesso.  The swirls are chipboard.
After gluing everything down with Liquitex gel medium, I applied a layer of gesso.
Allow to dry and then get your sprays out!
I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Moon Shadow colors.
 I dried each color before applying the next one.  Gave lots of personality!!
I cut the names and date with my Cricut Jasmine cartridge.  Added those with gel medium under and on top of them-they aren't going anywhere!!

The last thing I added was the metal "together" "forever" words.

I love how it turned out!  The bride did too!!

I wish Amber and Curtis the absolute best in their married life.  I pray they put God first and everything else will take care of itself!

Have a terrific Friday!!

Cardboard take new life!

Look at this fabulous creation!!!!
I'm so pleased with how it turned out.
The best part - can you tell what the substrate is?
Approximately 8x16
 Added some designer paper, some gesso, some paint, some stenciling, etc.
 Did some Cricut cutouts of butterflies, printed and cut the words on my printer.  The wonderful lady was a digital image win from Cynthialoowho.  Find her shop HERE

Love Plaque with stenciled cabbage roses

I hope you're here from the sneak peek at Party Time Tuesdays.
I started with an 11x14 board.  I layered some designer paper with liquitex matte medium.
You go around all the edges of the paper with white paint (use your finger)  It helps the pieces to blend together.  Then I stenciled with modeling paste one of Retta's stencils. Cabbage roses.  The camera picked up the images beautifully.
Then I started coloring with Gelatos.   I hand cut some hearts and added them with the matte medium.
After it was all applied, I painted around the edges and smeared with my finger to outline everything and make it pop.

 I print my sentiments and/or poems out from Word Pad, spray with sealer and then add to my project.
I love the texture that stenciling with modeling paste gives.  Add lots of depth and character to your pieces.
Thanks for stopping by! 

Check out Party Time Tuesdays for loads of inspiration and challenges.

Roots and Wings Canvas

Here's a new mixed media canvas I finished.
It features a cutter file from Retta.  The tree!!
Isn't it spectacular!
The butterflies are four layers on top of each other.  I've added an flower or pearl embellishment in the middle of each one.
After gluing the tree down, I went around everything with a watered down brown and then black edge.  Smear a little with your finger.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you are inspired to do your own mixed media project.

An Ode to women challenge

A young model. I started just tracing her, then I did colored pencils, then I added watercolor to her. I'm not great at people, but this...
