I have been oohing an aahing mixed media canvases on Pinterest, esp those inspired by Christy Tomlinson. One of the items I received was a 4″ x 4″ canvas and knew I wanted to try my hand at mixed media art. I loved how this turned out so much that I went out and bought another one at Hobby Lobby! Ü
I looked all over the internet for ideas and tips on how to do it and found you can pretty much do what you want. I need some small space ideas as I was working with a 4″ x 4″ area and found this one on Pinterest that inspired me. I headed up to my craft studio and started cutting papers.
I started out just painting the canvas to give some background color. I also painted on a doily for texture, but it doesn’t show up that well in the final project.
I hope you enjoyed this post and are inspired to go and try your hand at mixed media.
