Welcome to a fun week where I will be featuring Penny Black stamps and supplies. I will be posting 3 videos, that’s today, on Wednesday and on Friday.

Penny Black is sponsoring this event with a giveaway so read along!

mixed media canvas

Today I am sharing a mixed media canvas. How gorgeous are those flowers by Penny Black? I usually get this question, if I make canvases and the answer is yes, using the same techniques as in my art journals.


The only difference is that I can go as dimensional as I want to when working on a canvas. In this case I will show you a technique that I like to make my flowers look dimensional.


This mixed media canvas will decorate the wall in my craft room along with other tags, canvases and cards I like to use for decoration.


And I couldn’t stay away from a striking color combination using primary colors. Adding those script die cuts by Penny Black gave a whole new meaning to my canvas, since this is what I do on my craft room!

You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel
