Mixed Media Canvas

Hi everyone! Today I have a special project to share with you. It is a canvas that is loaded with texture in the background. I have used papers from my Flying Uniocorn April kit, lots of yummy Prima embellishments, Shimmerz Spritz’s and Vibez and for all that amazing texture I have used the new Shimmerz TextureZ Crushed Coral in the background.

First I have covered the canvas with papers and distressed the edges. After that was done I applied some gauz and did some masking with TextureZ in the background. Once that was dry I applied lots of yummy layers of Shimmerz Cotton Candy, Truffle and Treasured Hymn Spritz and finished it with some Shimmerz Hot Fudge Vibez. The awesome metal heart is an Adornment from Flying Unicorn.

The chippys are all from Scrap FX. LOVE their steam punk ones, and you can get them at the Flying Unicorn store. Check out that cool metal hinge. It is from Fabscraps.

Here you can see some of that awesome texture in the background.

I even made my own stick pin for the cluster.

The chippys are finished with the same colors of Shimmerz Spritz. That metal key is another Adornment from Flying Unicorn. I really wish you could see that background closer, the new TextureZ is just amazing.

Well that is it for today! I had so much fun creating this canvas.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
