Mixed Media 6x6 Canvas (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

I have been really wanting to pull out a canvas for some time now (I may do another again real soon!) and decided to work on a 6x6 size using a few different mixed media methods! I first began with a paper transfer method using Prima art basics 3D Matte Gel and some beautiful Marion Smith paper. I love doing this transfer technique because it allows the paper to look as if it is a part of the canvas versus just being glued on top. I did try something slightly different, not exciting, but different. As most of you know, with my projects, I often sew the papers and distress the I sewed the paper first before I adhered it to the canvas. I wondered how the thread would look once I started removing the top fiber layer of the paper. It appeared as I had expected. Most of the fibers of the paper came off around the thread (with a little work) but a lot of it stayed entwined with the thread...which I liked because it just added more texture!  Once I was done removing the outer layer of the paper, while it was still wet, I added a layer of the gel medium over the top. This protects any of the rough edges and seals in the design. I also added some stenciling with The Crafters Workshop "Art Is" design and Ranger Texture Paste. And then....I went to town with all of my layering. I used tons of yummy Prima product, most of which came from Reneabouquets. I will have the list of the product I used below the pics. I used some new flowers in Renea's shop along with a beautiful butterfly design...Tiny Treasures Champagne Dreams...a tone of peach and champagne. I also added one of the bronze shabby chic metal scissors from the shop and added a stunning shade of Reneabouquets glitter glass in the color of Sand around the canvas. I wont give up too much of the process as I will have my YT video below where you can see the entire start to finish process! If you would like to see any of Renea's beautiful products, just click on the link to the right of my sidebar and happy shopping!
