Having Fun with Mixed Media Canvas

Kim Kelley who is extremely obsessed with her crafting and art is constantly having projects to a point that sometimes she forgets what they were meant for. She has a thing with being imaginative and is always exploring anything that comes to her mind.

Her love of wanting to learn new techniques is evident. This month she decided to go for canvas project that is a little larger than what she does normally. So what did she require for this?
  • Chipboard from Dusty Attic
  • Spray mist by Lindy’s Shabby Tuxbine Teal
  • 8” x 24” canvas
  • Heavy Gel by Golden
  • White gesso
  • Glue gun
  • Miscellaneous charms, flowers, metal pieces, wooden pieces, and jewelry pieces
Kim doesn’t have a particular of doing this but she will explore on any idea she comes about using theme, colors and style.

She advises that it is best to use the already primed canvas although you can still add your own gesso. Once the gesso dries up, start laying out your pieces, turning them this way and that way until you can finally smile at what you are seeing.

You will use the hot glue gun to attach smaller pieces while the bigger ones you will use Heavy Gel. Don’t be in a hurry to spray. Wait until all is dried up.

Creation is all about going beyond your comfort zone. Imagination comes in handy which lead to finding your own inner creative artist.
