Here is my first mixed media canvas art, i wanted something to personalise my craft room with and will be doing a few more. i bought it for 50p from a charity shop and covered over the old image with some forever friends self adhesive fabric and then covered the area with some homemade texture paste and left it to dry overnight. i then gathered up my favorite stencils, inks and paint and started dabbing and spray things all over the place.
To add dimension just spread texture paste over a stencil mask and dried it with a heat gun before randomly spritzing it with inks. I used Artiste Cardinal Red, Violet,Goldstone, Electric Blue and ocean Blue. Oak House Stdio's Pumpkin, Sepia, Vintage blue and tempting teal. it was not long after this project that i realised i needed a pink one so i guess i've spent next months wages already. to make the quote (which was influenced by a stamp i had spotted on Oak House Studio's website) i used a selection of Tim Holtz alphabet die strips and then spritzed the cutouts with Goldstone spritzing ink.
for the altered chipboard i just painted it over with the texture paste and the spritzed inks over it. I then titled the canvas up and blew the excess ink down the page adding a few more drops to add to the effect.
