Cherished treasures mixed media canvas for Imaginarium Designs


Cherished-treasures-canvas

This month, I am the guest designer over at Imaginarium Designs. :) Here is my first project - a 6x6 mixed media canvas.


The base of the canvas was covered with remnant pieces of white lace. Then gessoed. Found metal pieces were then adhered to the base with gel medium. Once the surface was dry, I added some Silks glazes over it. Then finished with a spritz of silver mist which trickled down the uneven surfaces and created depth.


I painted the Cherished Treasures chipboard with gesso and a coat of silver paint. Then added the blooms and some mica flakes to finish the canvas.

What do you think?
