Happy Tuesday!! Today I wanted to share a fun little mixed media tutorial with you. I love creating canvas to hang all over my house or to give as a gift. This one I plan to give to a friend.
So to get started you will need a canvas, mod podge, paint brush, patterned paper, embellishments and scissors.
Second cut your papers how ever you would like just so they cover the canvas.
Once you have the paper cut and you know where you want them it's time to Modpodge. TIP: I take a picture once I have them in place so I know exactly where I had them.
I pour Mod Podge all over then take paint brush and cover the canvas.
Then after all the papers are placed down on the canvas, it's time to add the Mod Podge to the tops off the papers. No worries it dries clear.
Now that the canvas is dry it's time to add the embellishments. I like to wait till it's nice and dry so I can play with where to place my embellishments. I wanted to mention I found the "friends" digital file on the Citrus Twist Fan FB Page under the files tab. And the "forever" I cut on my cameo. The little rose was cut out using my Big Shot and you can find the die in the Citrus Twist Store.
After you have everything where you want it you need to Mod Podge the back and front of each item.
Here is my finished project:
I hope this has inspired you to create a mixed media piece. If you do please link it in the comments below, I would love to see it!
