Dream Canvas Layout

Its mixed media time at Paper Lane and soon they will be hosting a workshop that will bring out the artist in you!!  I cannot wait for the workshop because my mixed media skills are growing slowly but surely :-)

For my design team project to 'wake up' the mixed media artist in me I used various techniques on a mini canvas ... see the canvas at a glance below.

The paints I used was Martha Stewart's satin acrylic craft paint - Paper Lane stocks the complete range of her new craft products - pop into the store and buy some - they are affordable and a must have!!!  I used goji berry, rubber ducky and putty.  Placed a glob size of each colour onto the canvas and painted - it produced that really super colour. This paint is amazing people - its texture is thick and satiny.  It spreads on easy, washes off easy and is a total pleasure to use!  You must pop into Paperlane's store to try this fantastic paints!

I also used the mini tile texture template (above) and the poppies and peonies mask (below).  Under the flowers are washi tape and grunged up creme lace.

Gorgeous butterfly and Prima flowers.

I rubbed some bronze rub and buff on the wheels and that gorgeous flower is by Prima.  The word dream is by K&Company

 Everything I used on this mini canvas can be purchases at Paper Lane!
