4x4 Mixed Media Canvas


I recently participated in a 4x4 canvas swap with a small group of friends.  This is the canvas I made and sent to Nancy.  I used acrylics, The Crafters Workshop stencils, and Studio 490 stamps on the canvas.  The white stenciled flower is outlined with a Sharpie paint marker.  The center of the flower is a couple dried drops of acrylic paint that were on my craft sheet - I thought they were cool and wanted to use them.  The white dots on the acrylic drops were made with the Sharpie marker.  Doodling done with a Pitt pen.  The flower and leaves are watercolor paper, Tim Holtz Sizzix dies, acrylic paint, stamped on with Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 dot and text stamps.  The stem is grunge.  The quote is also a Studio 490 stamp stamped with Archival Ink jet black on white cardstock, color added, cut out, edged and added to the canvas.





Below is the canvas I received from Michael - totally awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!

Both are fantastic! Michael's is quite different as I hadn't seen the burst out technique used on a mixed media project before. Really cool!
