Happy 4th of July for all the USA folks out there. It is always a big holiday for my family as we have birthdays on the 3rd and 5th to celebrate as well. With family in mind, I made the 8″ x 10″ Mixed Media Canvas with “Family” as the focal point.
I started with some vintage music book text and adhered it down to the canvas will Soft Gloss Gel. Next I applied texture paste over a couple of different stencil designs to add some dimension to the project. Over the texture paste, I applied Grundgeboard die cuts; swirls on the top right and a hinge at the lower right. Wood text letters were then added to spell out Family.
After the background layers were dry, I started layering color with various spray acrylics as well as some glimmer mist. Finally, I further embellished the piece with additional stenciling and stamping.
