In A First for Me – A Mixed Media Canvas

Well – there is not a lot of media mixing going on, but here is my first try.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the paper, my trusty Epson Photo R2000 for printing the “words” and some gesso, matte medium, acrylic paints, and stamps to create something to hang on the wall of a friend’s creative space (scheduled for expansion after her daughter gets married and moves out).

The best thing about this type of project is you can cut and adhere your paper pieces with relative freedom because of the matte medium.  I used a flowering dogwood branch, a heart, and some stars in a variety of papers.  To get the branch properly aligned to fit the 4×12 canvas, I simply trimmed the branch apart and adhered the heart over the  stem pieces.


So there you have it – a first canvas.

  1. You did such a great job….lots of mixed going on. 🙂 And, I agree that it is perfect for the lady with the bright light that will receive it.
