Today, for my DT project for AALL & Create I have created a Mixed Media Mini canvas. It was so much fun to make. I used one of Fiona's little people for it and she looks fab !
And here's how:
I had wanted to use some corrugated cardboard on one of my projects for ages and today was the day! I used it to put little Juniper on. She's so cute !
First things first though.. I started with model paste and a stencil. This one was designed by Autour de Mwa and it is great. You can use the whole thing or just a little bit like I did.
When the model paste had dried I coloured the canvas with spray inks. I used Lindys Stampgang sprays because I happed to really like those but you can use other inks too.
I did mess about with it for a little while after I took this photo because I thought it was too green.
After I was happy with the colour I splattered white paint on it. Next I painted the piece of cardboard with white gesso and stamped part of stamp #80 on it using Distress Oxide ink 'Peacock Feathers. I also went around the edges of the card board. Later on I added some more stamping with the same stamp and black Archival ink...
I then coloured little Juniper. She will be wearing a nice turquoise frock and a pink necklace.
Here she is all dressed and ready to go.
I glued her onto the card board piece and gave her a bow in her hair made from Sari ribbon. I added atwo text stickers by Tim Holtz. I thought these two went really wel together. And there you have it !
