Mixed Media - Canvas

Hi there!  Thanks for stopping by.
Today I have a little 4"x4" canvas art to show you.

This is one of the projects we made at
last Saturday's Stampin' Retreat.

If you missed it, don't worry ... we have
another one coming up Saturday, September 7, 
from 1:00-4:00 at the same location, Comfort Suites
in Roanoke.  We'll be focusing on Christmas cards 
and tags.  You can come make a bunch a few months
ahead of time so you have a little less you have to
stress about during December.  :)

Isn't it fun?  We took a blank white canvas
and painted it with brown acrylic paint.
Once it dried, we applied a layer of Mod Podge
and adhered a square of Sweater Weather 
designer series paper stamped with the
Gorgeous Grunge stamp set for the
splatter effects.  We then adhered
the pumpkin (three ovals) and the
stem and leaves and added another
coat of Mod Podge.  Once that was
all dry, we applied a Naturals button
with some linen thread and a sentiment,
all with glue dots.

This was so much fun to do and really pretty
easy!  I can't wait to do this for 
Halloween and Christmas!

What ideas come to your mind when you think
of this technique of applying paper to canvas?


  1. super cute, Sami! Such a good technique. I have yet to create a mixed media project.

  2. WOW!!That is cute! I love the technique
