A mixed media canvas for Sisters Art Creation


4-happy-kids-mixed-media-canvas

So I was invited to be a guest designer for Sisters Art Creation and created this 12x12 mixed media canvas using their lovely chipboard.


I love the popup look with a shadow effect so I always print another photo, cut out the silhouette and then prop them up on 3D foam. The flourish chipboard pieces were painted with acrylic paints and glazes so that they look like vines...*winks*


Because I matted the main photo in black, I had to add some black elements for a cohesive look. I did this by stamping some plants and then adding black sequins.


I actually distressed and machine-stitched the edge of the patterned paper for subtle texture.
