A Cheerful Heart- Mixed Media Canvas

Hello all,

I had been thinking of trying my hand at creating a mixed media project using a canvas panel. Creating a mixed media is an attractive, fulfilling process but most of the time I find myself not having enough patience or inspiration or material for it.

This one is made using amalgamation of different stamp brands and colors. I first applied gesso on the canvas panel. I used Distress Crayons set-1 for the background. I loved using crayons to create quick colorful background. Applying them with figures is really fun! I used Penny Black's Stencil with Ranger's texture paste. I added texture over the paste with a pin. Once it dried, I applied and smudged crayons over the flowers. Later, I stamped different elements with Kaisercraft's texture stamp, Altenew's Hennah Elements in background, stenciled black dotes with Heidi Swapp's stencil. With Embossing Pen, I added vertical, embossed golden lines. The stamped sentiment is from My Favorite Things' Cheerful Blessings stamp set, the butterflies are from Altenew's Wild Hibiscus stamp set. I added diecut branches from, believe it or not, Elyse Christmas Tree die of Memory Box. I love to use pieces of this exquisite Christmas tree diecut many times as foliage.

I guess, it turned out well. I enjoyed creating it, I hope to improve on some steps and make more of these.
