Mixed Media Canvas Board

I can't believe it's September already and time for another challenge at Altered Eclectics, as always the theme is Anything Goes but it must be Mixed Media/Altered Art - no cards are allowed.

For my DT piece I've made a mixed media piece on a canvas board.

I started by covering a 8" x 8" canvas board with bits of patterned paper and giving it a light coat of gesso.

Then I added some coloured acrylic paint.

I then used some texture paste with a stencil and painted some gesso over it.

The canvas board was then coloured with Gelatos.

I stamped the leafy branch onto the board and stencilled some tiny pink circles, I also stamped some postmarks. I stamped the leafy branch, flowers and bird onto some of my Gelli prints and cut them out, I adhered them to the board, I also added some Remnent Rubs and the quote. I gave it a coating of Multi Matte Medium.

I finally added more colour to the leaves, flowers and bird with Faber-Castell Pitt pens.

The stamps I used are;
Sheena Douglas - the leafy branch, flowers and bird.
Hobby Arts - the quote.
Postmark - unknown

Thank you for looking at my work, I hope you can take time to look at the lovely inspirational pieces that the rest of the Altered Eclectics DT have made.
