Video Tutorial to follow on my You Tube channel
Happy Sunday! I'm certainly enjoying the mixed media on canvas craze! It's such a messy, inky and forgiving artistic outlet for me. You literally can't make a mistake! There is no limit to the possibilities with embellishments, techniques and color!
Today, I've made a very whimsical canvas that includes stamping, acrylic paint, buttons, bobbles, texture past and templates! However, the best thing about today's project is that I've chosen to include some of my favorite die cuts as a center piece! That's right! I could go out and purchase loads of chipboard collections (of which I may like one or two pieces from) or I could use my favorite die cuts!
I simply cut more than one of the dies and glue them together to create my equivalent of chipboard! It's so fun and limitless in the range of possibilities!

INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
The miracle is this, the more we share; the more we have
I hope I've inspired you all today to get out your inks (even old acrylic paints you could use in dollar store spray bottles like mine). Enjoy the textures, the combination of inks, the creativity of design and most of all, the smile you get when you're done!
