Post 424: Triangular Mixed Media Canvas- "Live Beautifully"

Hi friends!!

I'd like to share a Triangular Mixed Media Canvas- "Live Beautifully". I was inspired by a couple of challenges this month & thought of making something with cool, fresh colors and a clean look, preserving some white space. This was also part of my DT work for Crafters Corner, all the details including a pictorial are here.


1. Applied Prima's Heavy White Gesso to the canvas and then applied Modelling Paste through Tim Holtz Gothic Stencil using a palette knife
2. Altered the color of the flowers and gauze by spraying them with Lindys Sprays (yellow shades)
3. Created clay embellishments with IOD mould and air dry clay
4. Added blue shades of color to the canvas using different mediums, sprayed with water to create an organic look & also created ink splatter 
5. Heat embossed the Dusty Attic Chipboards
6. Altered the butterfly chipboard by applying heavy white gesso and then sprayed with Lindys Spray
7. To emphasize the relief/raised surfaces of the clay embellishments, applied some blue paint to them with my fingers and then some white gesso to tone down the color and give them a shabby look
8. Created the composition and adhered all the elements (including some gems and a bit of lace my mom made) with 3D matte gel. 
Added texture to the canvas with a paste of art stones, 3d matte gel & platinum glass glitter
9. In the end, added a few art pebbles with glossy accents & created white splatter with watered down white gesso.
