I Dream of Paris - Altered Mixed Media Canvas

Happy Sunday Sweet Friends

I hope your weekend has been going well.  Sure been praying for everyone dealing with all the Hurricane Matthew.  I am hoping things settle down soon.  

It's time for this month's Mixed Media World's Challenge and this one ia all about Mixed Media and/or Assemblage. 




 I really enjoyed creating this project.  It's ironic how I started creating a totally different project because the first one just wasn't falling into place for me.  I decided to create something with a Paris theme.  This is an 8" x 8" canvas and I used a lot of different things.  It's currently almost midnight and I am exhausted so I will be back in the morning with more details on this project.

Good morning Sweet Ladies

I really enjoyed making this and this is how I created it:

*I used an 8" x 8" canvas.
*Added a coat of Gesso.
*Covered front with left over pieces of cardstock from the Angel Company.  It's one of my favorites which is why I only had scraps and unfortunately they went out of business.
*I used scraps of tissue paper around the outside edges of canvas.
*Used two stencils - one a script and the other floral for the background along with molding paste.
*I used a floral die cut and cut out 8 images.  Used four on each corner.  Glued them  on top of each other to create more depth.  
*Sealed entire canvas with a coat of Clear Gel Medium.
*I used a lot of broken chains (cheap - not gold - LOL) to create a border around the edges.  
*Covered it all with a light coat of Gesso.
*Used Rich Espresso Metallic Paint for the inside edges on top of canvas.
*Once dry added all the embellishments.

If you have any questions please let me know.  I am still new to the Mixed Media/Altered Art world but love it.

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
