Looking Window

Good morning! I wanted to share a mixed media canvas I created for my sweet friend Pattie Oisten. I used the theme for our new challenge this week over at Stamp Ink Paper. Here is the inspiration for this weeks challenge

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge 143 Basket of Flowers

And this is the canvas I created

Looking Window

I do not own any stamps with a basket so I went with a window box full of flowers.

My friend Delores Miller has taken me under her wing and is teaching me all about mixed media. I have completely fell in love with it!

For this canvas we started out by covering it completely with chipboard block pieces and then covering it with heavy black gesso. While that was drying we die cut the Tim Holtz window, box and topper and coated them with heavy black gesso followed with a coat of distress teal paint. Once everything was dry we added the paper scene and Paper dolls behind the window and attached these to the center of the canvas. Next we distressed the canvas edges and the window with finnabair rust effect pastes. Next I added all the embellishments and highlighted them using Prima waxes. To give more of an aged look I sprayed the whole canvas with a coffee mixture.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Happy crafting 🙂
