We’ve seen some gorgeous projects this month from our design team this month, and today I’m sharing my canvas I made using the mixed media kit:
I recently bought a couple of the Ranger Distress Oxide sprays, and I am HOOKED! The technique possibilities are endless, but so far, what I really like to use them on are dark surfaces. Here’s the result of adding the sprays to a canvas primed with black gesso:
I started out by adding stenciling with crackle paste to the entire canvas in the kit. Once dry, I added a smaller canvas somewhat centered, and added some crackle paste to this one as well. I used a few things from my stash to complete the design, but I chose my focal point to be the image of the lady from the Prima Marketing mould set. I added an older Prima resin oval frame to the smaller canvas to “house” the focal point. I found some chipboard to add that I thought would make nice pieces to showcase the flowers made with the modeling material. Once the placement was complete, I painted the entire canvas with black gesso. Here’s a closeup that shows the stenciling and finish details:
Once dry, I added the Ranger Distress Oxide Sprays. I started out with Antique Linen because it was the lightest if the colors. While still damp, I added the Bundled Sage spray, then dried those colors with a heat gun. Next I added more of the Bundled Sage spray, then added a lot of Faded Jeans spray. Then, I added a few sprays of Speckled Egg spray (from my stash), then set aside to dry.The next day, I rubbed the canvas with a paper towel- the sprays were dried, and the finish is kind of powdery, so rubbing it revealed some of the black gesso under the sprays. I added some wax in white gold from my stash, then added some of the gold Lindy’s mica powder to the bottom canvas, and random other places. I added clear glass beads with gloss gel surrounding the “lady,” and a Tim Holtz title from my stash that I distressed a bit, inked blue, and glued down.
