Mixed Media Canvas

Hello everyone! Today, we are having an amazing blog hop at Brutus Monroe. We have used Brutus Monroe products to create a mixed media project! How cool is that! I've always wanted to try mixed media, but never did till now. So here comes my first mixed media canvas:


I took my canvas that I had bought at Hobby Lobby and started by applying texture paste with the Mixed Media Stars stencil. Once it dried, I used a mini ink blender to apply Oz ink over the entire canvas, lighter towards the top right and darker towards the lower left. Then I stamped the hexagon shape from the Grunge Shapes stamp set with the Brutus Monroe Glue pad and added the Brutus Monroe powdered element in gilded!


Now, on to the flowers. I cut a bunch of flower shapes on Alabaster card stock and inked them with Rogue surface ink on the front and back.


Then I inked the center of the flowers with Phonebook surface ink.


I die cut a few leaves from a Karen Burniston die set and inked them with Cabbage surface ink.


Then I sprayed water on each of the flowers shapes, used my embossing tools to shape the petals. After shaping the petals, I glued the layer of petals using the Brutus Monroe glue. I then poked a hole in the center and threaded the pollen through it and added glossy accents to hold it in place.


I stamped the tiny circle from the Grunge Shapes and the jelly bean image from Sweet Pops stamp sets with the Oz and the Rock Candy surface inks, to add some textured look to the background. Then comes the fun part - arranging the flowers and leaves. I used foam tape to adhere some of the flowers. Then I mixed up some of the gilded powdered elements with water and splattered it on top of the flowers and the top part of the canvas. Well, this is the first time I'm doing this! Yes, it took a lot of courage to do that on the flowers!! Then I adhered the sentiment, which also, I bought from Hobby Lobby on clearance.


That's all from me today. Do visit the Brutus Monroe blog to start hopping from the beginning or here's the blog hop order:

What an absolutely beautiful creation! I adore the layered flowers and I also really like the way you incorporate hexagons. The background, too, is stunning and the whole thing is a beautiful tribute to spring! Can't wait for those flowers to bloom and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
