Mixed Media Canvas

This month at Berry71bleu our challenge is hosted by Norma and it's a fun one, "Get Creative With Textiles."  Our DT is sponsored by Inkido with papers from their Beautiful Memories collection and Scrapiniec, a Polish manufacturer of gorgeous chipboard along with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft who sent the DT lots of products to work with.  I decided to step out of my comfort zone and create a mixed media canvas for Norma's challenge.
I really enjoyed working with the gelatos from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft.  Love the rich colors and various ways you can use them.

Here I used a Prima Mask and applied some modeling paste.  After the paste dried I used various colors of gelatos, Guava, Butter Cream, Chocolate, Metallic Blueberry and Earl Grey on the modeling paste.

I  applied some Faber-Castell Design Memory Crafts Gesso on a metal heart and once it dried I dabbed on some Chocolate gelatos.  I also dabbed my flowers with the Chocolate gelatos.

 I covered the Scrapiniec chipboards with gelatos, using Chocolate on one and a mixture of Earl Grey and Metallic Blueberry on the other one.  Love the details of the Scrapiniec chipboard!

I would love for you to join in on the fun and create a project for our August Challenge!  Check out Norma's post here and check out the wonderful prizes we have from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft.

Thanks for stopping by!
