Hi! Time for Mixed Media Tuesday and today I created a canvas using lots of fun techniques.

You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel

It’s a fun project that allows you to use any background patterned papers that you have

I combined lots of techniques for the background such as stamping, stenciling and even heat embossing

Splatters, rub-ons and more were used to create interest

for my composition I used ephemeras and die cuts along with burlap and corrugated cardboard for extra texture

  1. Beautiful project. I own your elements stamp set and use it often on cards and in my art journal. I also have paper/ephemera/stencils and rub-ons from your first Create Happiness collection, so I’m excited to see your new collection.
    Thank you for demonstrating the ceramic knife in your “short.” They must be more common in Europe since I’ve never seen one used here in classes I’ve taken or blogs I’ve watched. Is there a brand you recommend?

  2. What a fun canvas project! Reminds me of the first photo I took with an old “box” camera!! I like the pop of color from the flowers. What a tease you are!!!! Looking forward to seeing your new collection next month! I find it hard to believe you’ve come up with something to top your other collections!!!! How exciting!!

  3. I love this project. Watching you create is so relaxing & the final result is so beautiful. Anxious to see your new collection & your projects from it.
