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!

Mixed Media Canvas – Open Heart

I created this canvas using some keys that I picked up that were supposed to be decorative garden ornaments. As soon as I saw them I knew immediately what I could do with them. Today I got my chance to use one out of the 4! To see how I created the canvas from start to finish click the YouTube link below.

I really enjoy making these canvases and I hope you do too. I don’t make enough as they take up some much time, but I really enjoy it when I do!

Mixed Media Art Project – Neglected Tools of the Trade

This is an art project I created in collaboration with my friend Linda Simpson. We set each other the task of creating an art piece on the theme of Neglected Tools of the Trade. Each piece had to be at least 8″ in size in one of it’s dimensions and feature some kind of tool or equipment.

I thoroughly enjoyed creating this piece and just love the rust colours and textures in it. To see how it was created from start to finish click the YouTube link below. Don’t forget to hop over to Linda’s channel to see what she has created!

8×8 Mixed Media Canvas – Create Art

Today I’m in the mood for soft pastel ice creamy colours and a little bit of shabby chic! This is a flat 8×8 canvas created using some of my new Lazer Cutz, modelling paste with a couple of stencils and acrylic paints. I really enjoyed making this canvas because I’ve stepped outside my normal comfort zone by using this combination of colours. Not ones I’d normally go for!

To see how I created the canvas from start to finish, click the YouTube link below.

I have added the canvas to my store if anyone is interested in purchasing it. Click here! To find out more about my Medite Lazer Cutz click here!
