Mixed Media Canvas

My love for mixed media and canvas projects has grown considerably over the past few months.  I am still very much a novice so I practise often, try proven techniques and new ideas all the time. 

I quite like how this canvas turned out and look, the images has found its way to my blog...

The buildings I cut with my Cameo and used them as a stencil. I used various distressed inks for colour.

Torn strips of canvas, cloud silhouettes cut with my Cameo and glimmer mists make these clouds.

A Tim Holtz birdcage and creme de chocolat glimmer mist for this image - see how the bird is free from the cage?!

An embossed Dusty Attic lamp post and Cameo cut leaves create this section of the canvas - I cut the leaves from green cardstock and also applied apple gliimer mist with a paint brush for added colour.

 In the image below do you notice the picket fence against the wall??  This is also a die cut and I arranged the flowers against the fence against the wall - thought that was kinda cute !

The above image has quite a few bits and pieces...flowers & toadstools were fussy cut from freebies in a craft magazine, dandelions cut with Cameo, brown and orange flowers from my stash, stunning green lace from Paperlane.  The butterfly was fussy cut from Pink Paislee's Spring Jubilee paper collection. 

All the above products with the exception of the freebie are all available from Paperlane including the Cameo Sillouette machine.  They have an awesome store filled with a variety of products bound to satisfy even the most discerning shopper.

Hope you like the canvas! 

Thanks for stopping by and please do leave a comment.
