Sharing a mixed media mini canvas that I made for my friend, Bev, visiting the islands. I had a lot of fun making this beach-themed project. I've been collecting a lot of beach-themed/nautical crafty things lately and have been itching to create! I added gesso to the top portion of the canvas and sort of swirled it on. I added some Martha Stewart stucco paint on the bottom portion to make it look like sand. I sprayed Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist on the gesso and on the stucco paint. I then stenciled with modeling paste over the top portion of the canvas. I sprayed everything with Pearl Glimmer Mist so the colors ran over the stenciling. I gessoed the chipboard letters and added Diamond Stickles all over them. I added two pretty shells, some glass pearls, clay pieces that I sprayed with Glimmer Mists, and some burlap twine that I tied in a bow. I adhered that burlap-like material and cheesecloth to the back of the canvas. I rubbed gesso on everything and added some Fran-tage in Aged Ivory.
I am entering this project into:
