Mixed Media Mini Canvas: Be You

Hi folks!

Hows the weekend looking for you? I look forward to getting started on some new supplies and experimenting :) Today, I'd like to share a mixed media mini canvas titled "Be You", this was my first try at working on a canvas and also at using crackle texture paste and I must say I love the cracked effect. I enjoyed it a lot and hope to make more canvases in the future :)

There are many layers in the canvas i.e. gesso, texture paste, layers of color added using sprays, inks and brush pens. Stencil work was done using a brick design stencil. For added texture, I'd added some small beads and gauze. The project is embellished with a stamped butterfly, gems, flowers, buds and tendrils. There is copper colored shine and shimmer on the project due to embossingSplashes of white gesso were added at the end. 

I really love the stamped sentiment that reads, "Don't let people discourage you. Just fluff your tutu and dance away." I think I will hang this canvas in my room to look at it and help me stay encouraged.

Work beckons

Hi friends :)

Hope you are doing well. It is the middle of summers in India and very hot in Delhi. Hope the weather in your part of the world is better. I've got new and fun craft supplies waiting for me but due to work commitments, won't be able to take out any time for crafting for the next 7-8 days I think. Hopefully, I'll get time to play with the stuff and experiment after that. Would love to share my opinions and crafty experiments. There is a gelli printing plate, distress oxides, some new stamps, a couple of dies and some plaid craft acrylic paints. Really looking forward to it. 

So basically will be missing in action for the next few days. 

See you soon. 
Happy crafting and take care 

Hugs
Preeti
