Mixed Media....Canvass Art

I have been fascinated by Mixed Media for quiet some time now and have read and read and read on the same so much that I just had to try it out....but yess ...I didnt have most of the essentials materials like gesso, alcohol inks, sprays and mists etc.....what I had was Mod Podge and an idea!!!

I refused to let go of the idea so I did a simple canvass art.....have a look...


I had a wedding theme in my mind ...but not a typical festive feel but one about companionship and homeliness .....
 Its a 8X8 canvass that I have used.....and I thought having no base color brought out the colors in the elements better!!!

 The flowers and the entire left side of the canvass is free hand drawing inspired from a sketch I saw in Pinterest...I love the site which gives me my daily dose of inspiration....and I have used all kinds of medium to color it...from fine tip pens to Tombow Markers to Staedtler watercolor pencils to some other local made watercolor pencils....and watercolors ...sparkle mist just to add a lil shimmer....phew!!! I just went crazy with it....:) the drawing was done on Brustro Watercolor paper...


The pink border is a SD die cut....and the house and the couple are stamped images colored with Tombow Markers...

 For the tickets that you see popping out of the house ....on the flower...and behind the couple on the top....have been stamped on Brustro watercolor paper....but I first colored it with different watercolors and then misted it with golden and silver mists....before the stamping!!!

 Have a closer look at the blooms....


The couple is stamped on Brustro ...but I darkened the image with a fine tip pen before cutting and sticking it...
This was my first attempt with doodling too!!!

All the cut outs are first stuck with Mod Podge and then two layers of Mod Podge layers have been brushed on top of it ...I realised that the paper was too thick and hence the edges were not smooth !!! Maybe some more layers of Mod Podge will have to be brushed to give it a smoother finish!!!

Hope you like it as much as I did.....but I really had fun creating this ....experimenting with different coloring mediums can really be exciting and crazy....

Do leave your comments and feedback....they encourage me....
