Hi eveyone! Summertime is here (but not in North of norway right now lol) and when spring and summer comes. I tend to overflow of ideas and inspiration, I hope it lasts lol! Today I want to show you a Mixed Media canvas I have made using Papirdesign products. Brace yourself for alot of pictures ;) I got the idea to just take some snapshots through the process, som maybe others will try the same. It is fun♥
/Here I add patterned papers from PD totally random, no thoughts going on here lol. I glue it down with Matt Gel Medium and also isolate the paper on top with it. So the papers keep their original look♥
./Then I add a layer of Gesso with my spatula, now also without a plan in mind. So that some of the patterned papers will show more through than others ;)
3. Så finner jeg fram mine favoritt "rammer". Som er endel av designet til disse vakre stemplene under. De er helt rådigge er de! Jeg ble helt forgapt i rammene også og *kremt* har klippet dem løs fra motivet i midten. Så jeg kan bruke dem som orignalt men også bare rammen utenom. Jeg bruker dem så ofte at jeg sjeldent pakker vekk disse stemplene hihi! Faktisk også slipset på det til venstre bruker jeg ofte til å lage tekstur i bakgrunner. Stempler er så mye mere enn bare et trykk ♥ De er et multiverktøy. Og som mange av dere vet, er jeg svært forgapt i PD sine stempler :D/ Then I am adding my favorite "frames". They are integrated in the gorgeous motif stamp shown under here. They are awsome just as they are, but I looooove the grungy frame. So I have cut them apart, so I can use them seperatly also. These stamps never reach my stamp storage. Because they are my favorite stamps. Do you see the tie on the one on the left under here. Well I use it often to make texture in my backgrounds! Because it is so gorgeous. For those who do not know I am hooked on PD stamps. They are my all time favorite and I use them ALOT! I see stamps as a multi tool, they can be used in so many ways ♥
/Here is an example of the texture from the tie:
/ Now back to the Canvas :)
./ I then stamped the frames on patterned papers from PD. These are from early PD series :)
./ Here I have glued the frames down to the canvas after cutting them out. I used Matte Gel Medium to adhere them to the canvas.
/ I wanted some more texture on the frames. So I added Glossy Accent and sprinkled on Distress Stickles Dry Glitter while the glue was still wet.
I so LOVE this glitter. Not too flashy but still gives a hint of glitter magic here and there :)
./ I love texture and alot of layers, so for more depth I chose Golden Mica Flakes. It gives a wonderful effect I think.
./As you can see on the picture under. I love this medium. But it is still wet so the real effect does not show yet.
Det ferdige lerrete:/The finished Canvas:./ I have used Nail polish remover in the frames to remove some of the gesso. So that the patterned papers shows more through ;)
/The chipboard heart is from PD. I have just spiced it up a bit lol. Unfortunately I did not capture it on my camera. I bought myself a new Lense for my camera. But either I am such a newbie that I can get it to work, or there is something wrong with it.. so the detailed pictures were too blurry to show anything. So sorry for that :( I used Regular Gel and an stencil from Crafters Workshop to make the texture on the heart. Then painted it with acrylic paint and used a black brush pen on the edges.
Den turkise bakgrunnen rundt, er laget med Akrylmaling og Acrylic Glazing Liquid. De sammen blir nesten som en lasur. Noen som har lasurert hjemme før? Det har jeg, mange metervis av listverk til og med hihi! Men det gir ihvertfall en flott effekt oppå arkene. Transparent nok til å se hva som er under, med en flott farge på toppen. Jeg liker kontrasten det gir til de sorte rammene og den flotte perlemor sirkelen./On the rest of the canvas I have mixed Acrylic paint and Acrylic Glazing Liquid to make a transparent turquoise glaze. So you still can see the patterns through the color. I love the contrast it gives to the black frames and the beautiful pearl center...
Da vil jeg ønske dere alle en fin uke videre♥/ Best wishes to you all ♥
