Believe Mixed Media

Good morning Blogger Friends!

This mixed media piece was so much fun to create!!!  It's a combination of so many different products and techniques.  First I will begin with the step-by-step instructions.

Prepare the canvas by painting a coat of Gesso over the top and each side.

Dry the canvas with a heat gun.

Lay down the embellishments and a piece of paper where a picture would go. Using a pencil, lightly draw a line around the area where the embellishments will go.  Remove all of the pieces.

You want to have a solid surface directly under the canvas where a stenciled image will be.  Place the canvas on top of a large book.  Lay the stencil on the canvas and take a spatula full of modeling paste and rub over the stencil.  I used a motel room key for the larger stencils.  Dry the images with a heat gun.  Clean the stencils immediately after each use.  It is NOT fun trying to clean stencils with dried modeling paste!

Adhere the lace, drywall tape, cheesecloth, doily, and paper.

Let the fun begin by spritzing and spraying your canvas with color.  On the brick stencils, I spritzed a reddish-bronze color.  If the color is to concentrated, thin it out with a spritz of water.  To blend colors, spritz with water and blend with a paint brush or tap the canvas on the sides to move the color.  To create the glass rings, spritz a mat with color, set a cup in the color then set the cup on the canvas.  Once you have achieved the desired color effects, dry with a heat gun.  I dry brushed white acrylic paint over the high areas to add another dimension.

Adhere embellishments.
