Happy Hump Day Y’all!! I hope this post finds you well and y’all have been crafting and quarantining! Today I’m sharing a mixed media canvas I made with my Mixed Media Kit this month
Can we take a moment to talk about these gears? Whoa. I mean, Amaz. Yeah. Anyway.
I started out by giving everything a good coat of black gesso. Since I wanted this canvas to be full of texture and grit and a bit of glitz, I also added some texture yumminess from my art stash but you can absolutely pull this off with what you have in the kit. You could possibly mix a bit of texture powder from last month’s kit in with the black gesso (or even a little sand) and get a similar grit.
I also sprinkled some of the glass glitter from last month’s kit as well.
I also used the metallic teal and gold to do some great aging effects on the gears. It gave them the perfect patina.
I pressed the gears down into the wet texture paste and that is how I adhered them down to my canvas.
Using a pallet knife I applied more of the gold metallic paint across the canvas. I just love the artsy effect it gave the piece.
Here is a short process video for you to see the piece in action!
I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at this process and found it inspiring it to go and make something beautiful today!
