Mixed Media Art Canvas – Learning How to Fly

For this 8×8 flat panel canvas I had the idea to use a feather shape as the main focal point, I also wanted to add some rust and patina to the piece to make it look almost mechanical. It does have a little steampunk aesthetic, but not too much. The feather is cut from grey grunge board, as are some of the cogs and gears, the rest are found items, beads and MDF shapes. The main ingredient however is the corrugated cardboard pieces that make up the base structure. To watch the creation process from start to finish click the YouTube link below.

Tell the Story 5″x7″ Mixed Media Art Canvas

This is a mixed media canvas I started months ago. I put it to one side to let the gloss gel medium on the paintbrush end to dry and forgot about it. I rediscovered it again when I started to do a bit of a tidy session in my art room and decided I’d finally finish it off. The original film of gluing and sticking all the bits together on the canvas is lost (sorry) I must have deleted them thinking I would no longer need them. However, I have filmed the whole process of finishing off the canvas and I also filmed it it in real time, only the boring drying time edited out! To watch the process click the YouTube link below.

This canvas is for sale on my website, click—> [HERE] to view the purchase information.

There is only the one, it is unique and one of a kind, so it’s first come first served!

6×6 Father’s Day Card

It’s Father’s Day here in the UK this weekend and so I thought I’d make my Dad a card using some of the recent Tim Holtz purchases that I have in my collection. So I found a great cut out from the Paper Dolls, plus some great layering pieces from the Collector Layers ephemera and the word “DAD” spelled out in alpha chips. Teamed up with a little Vintage Photo Distress Oxide and a piece of patterned paper sent to me in happy mail recently. To watch the full process of creation from start to finish click the YouTube link below.

I’m sure Dad will love the card as the colours and style are right up his street! If you enjoyed the video don’t forget to give it a thumbs up and subscribe to my YouTube channel if you haven’t already!
