Mixed Media Canvas

HAPPY EASTER everybody. It's the 1st of the month so that means the start of a new challenge over at Altered Eclectics, the theme as always is anything goes as long as it's Mixed Media/Altered Art, no cards or ATCs are allowed.

For my DT piece I've decorated an 8" x 10" canvas.

I painted the canvas with gesso and adhered some book page strips then I added colour with acrylic paint and a brayer. I stencilled some paint and when it had dried I stamped some postmarks and script with black archival ink. I stamped the Paperartsy flowers onto patterned paper, cut them out and adhered them to the canvas. For the words I used a Paperartsy stencil and modleing paste. I gave the canvas a coat of matte medium and when it had dried I coloured the flowers with my pitt pens and went round them with a black pen, I went over the stencilled words with a white pen.

Thank you for visiting, have a lovely Easter and try not to eat too much chocolate. xxx Hazel.
