Mixed Media Canvas - Just BLOOM

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are doing great!

Here is my quick post, I am sharing a mixed media canvas which I have made couple of days back. Over to my canvas:

And here is how I made it.

1. I covered the the canvas with thin layer of gesso and once it dried, i added some pattern paper using modge podge to give some texture.

2. Next I painted over it with my fingers using acrylics paint ( color used - Teal and Royal Blue) till i satisfied with the background.

3. After that i added some texture using modelling paste and faber castell stencil ( i added crimson red acrylic color to the modelling paste to give it a color) .

4. Once everything was dried, I stamped it with some flourishes and circles using memento black ink

5. Then Added die cut flowers from Sizzix die and hand cut leaves, colored the flowers with gold acrylic paint and leaves with green acrylic. Glued wooden butterfly which was covered with pie lane's pixie dust.

6. Then i have added the BLOOM sentiment using modelling paste and alphabet stencil, once dried, I have added white pixie dust over it.

7.Finished it by adding dot stencil randomly with the gold acrylic paint.

8. Finally i covered the whole thing with a coat of mod podge and it was done :).
