Happy Mother's Day & Mixed Media Canvas Corp Brands

It's Sunday....
It's Mother's Day!

In honor of Mother's Day I created an mixed media card, with layers of
textures with depth. I truly believe that a handmade card or gifts 
are the best! 

"Happy Mother's Day"
5x7 size 

I gathered a few of Canvas Corp Brands products and started to rip,
tear, distress and add paste with stencils.

I also too Canvas Corp Black & Ivory Chicken Wire Cardstock, I 
fussy cut out the chicken wire pattern...then embossed it many times
to build up the layers and sprayed with Tattered Angels glimmer mist to 
add color tones and texture.

Grabbed a Petaloo flower that was laying around my desk...I colored it with
Tattered Angels glimmer mist it's a great way to watercolor.
Butterfly I fussy cut and water colored the same as the flowers.

I stamped the sentiment and cut out a banner shape distress the edges 
and inked it up and tucked it into the flower.
The water color purple flower is from Tattered Angels
 Mixed Media Origins-Nature. 

I want to wish all mother's and grandmother's a
 Beautiful and Happy Mother's Day!

Mixed Media Wooden Block "Explore" colored with Tattered Angels

I bought a wood block from the dollar store from the home decor section. 
I couldn't wait to bring it home to alter it!
I gathered my supplies, old book pages, glimmer mists, paint, stencil, gesso,
and modeling paste. Along with cheese cloth, wooden piece, and a few stamps.
Then the fun thing with mixed media you have 
many layers and much drying time! 

"Explore" Wooden Block

I started with gluing down the old book pages, painting gesso
over the wooden block to cover the image that was already on the block.
Sprayed many layers of beautiful Tattered Angels glimmer mist and paint.

Another layer is using modeling paste and The Crafter's Worshop 
Stencil Specimen #TCW454. Oh how I love this stencil!
Once dried another round of glimmer mists, paint layers....this process 
is the bomb.


I covered the wooden piece with gesso, glimmer mist and 
layers of embossing powder! LOVE IT

Thanks for stopping by, now to create another wooden block 
art piece I will share that as well. Keep your eye out for round two!!!
Stop by Canvas Corp Brands website for the glimmer mist
 and paints there are a ray of colors to choose from.
