Hello sweetheart mixed media canvas for Maya Road....a tutorial


Hello-sweetheart-mixed-media-canvas-by-Yvonne-Yam-for-Maya-Road

Hello friends! This month I am the guest designer over at Maya Road. Yay!  :) Here is the first of three projects I created for them...a 6x6 mixed media canvas.


I quite enjoyed the process of created something cutesy for a change...*winks* I've included a short tutorial to share how I created this project.


I started by adhering some medical gauze with gel medium to the canvas. Then I used The Crafter's Workshop stencil with some Golden fiber paste.


When that was dry, I coloured with some Faber Castell gelatos, blending the colours with some water. Then I applied some Liquitex heavy gesso to really bring out the textures of the gauze and fiber paste.


For the Maya Road chipboard pieces, I first painted them with gesso then with Golden and Daler Rowney acrylic paints.


Next I added some texture to the chipboard pieces using Golden glass bead gel. And when that was dry, I highlighted the textures with ColourArte Silks for some beautiful shimmer. Then I added some Maya Road vintage lace trim.





The last step was to assemble all the components together.

What do you think?
