Mixed Media Canvas

Hello there everyone, Heidi back here sharing a gorgeous little 8x8 canvas I made of my eldest daughter and her partner.  Spring has arrived on our side of the world and I wanted to do something bright and bold.

I started off by painting the canvas with some gesso, and then got some Double Scoop Gelato's.  I just love the bright bold colors.  I randomly colored in squares on the canvas using three of four different colored Gelatos and then using a wet wipe blended the colors together.

Once I was happy with the background, I added some texture paste and the diamond stencil on it and did some random stamping using black ink.

I then cut up some circles and squares from some old papers and added them to the canvas to bring in some other bright colors.

For the gorgeous Triangles I just used Faber Castle Big Pen Marker to color them in,  I have to say I just love the shapes and I have ordered some of these in cork too.


Here is a little close up of the Triangles - I just love the texture they give the canvas

Finally added my photo and some White Ink spats over the canvas, and my canvas was done.
