New Beginnings Canvas by Lanette Erickson

Hello, All you Amazing Creative People! I hope you all are having a wonderful New Year and sticking to your New Year's Resolutions, I am really trying too! 

One of my resolutions was to use my craft supplies that I have on shop from my stash in a way. I want to dig out things that I haven't used in a while. For this project my old stash items are a bit of Finn's Chipboard from a few releases ago and embossing powder. 

I am pretty happy with how this canvas turned out, I hope you like it as well!. If you would like to see how I created this canvas you can see my process start to finish on my YouTube Channel here: 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope I have inspired you in some small way to spend some creative time in your art space.

Until next time, Hugs & Have Fun Creating!

Hopes and desires by Julia Pospelova

Hello everyone. I am glad to welcome you back to Mixed Media Place. Today I, Yulia Pospelova, want to show you my unusual canvas in mixed media. I really like this colour combination. And I also love dry plants, tree branches and windows in my work.

A steampunk-style mill by Marietta Tegi

Hello Everyone!

Here again on the blog. 😊 This time I made a steampunk-style mill, that functions as a wind chime.

I painted the natural plywood base with White Gesso and then applied Crackle paste.

I glued corrugated cardboard on the top. I also put Crackle paste on it and I used a glue gun to put 'deposits' on it. I then coated it with Rusty Red metallique acrylic paint. I splattered it with Ink Black liquid acrylic. Finally, I highlighted it with White Gold wax.

I used metallique Hazelnut acrylic paint on the walls, sprayed with water, so the crackling is more visible and doesn't look gloomy.  A little matt effect was missing for my eyes, so I used Burlap Impasto paint in a few places. I put Soot Antiquing wax on the edges.

I painted the mill shovel with Burlap Impasto and minimal Soot and Sepia wax.

I used Ink Black liquid acrylic on the mould elements and then added waxes Old Silver, White Gold and Soot.

Finally, I added a few grainy decorative elements.

Have a nice day!
