So guys....what I created for this special time is a mixed media canvas....

I made a home decor with a double canvas and have shared a complete pictorial step by step so i hope it will help you to create something similar or even better . : )

here it is!

Step by Step Pictorial

 I prepared 2 (two) canvases size 20 cm x 30cm and 15cm x15cm

draw a line where you want to add the small canvass on top

Paint around with black gesso. Do the same with a small canvas on back  

Create a bricks texture with modelling paste and a stencil

do the same as the previous one for the smaller canvas

Now stick the smaller canvas on the top of the bigger canvas with
 a hot glue gun and spray with ink .

I used a mica powder at the edge and sprayed with a little water  

inside the small canvas I covered with Texture paste

 and added a cheese cloth as embellishment

I printed my sentiment and coloured it with distress ink  ( evergreen bough )

after that I distressed my journaling with distress tool and fussy cut word by word

with a black sharpie pen I then went around the edges 

I colored  my title with inka gold in Copper Color

I colored  the chippie bird cage with inka gold Gold Color

and I colored my resin with perfect pearls

also a charm and the door I coloured with Inka Gold in Ice Blue color

after I finished coloring all embellishment I decorated them on my canvas 

after I fixed all things in the right composition I repainted again with inka gold

I thought I missed something ...yes a texture paste ! so I added a few at the corner and some place to give more texture 

After I added some texture paste I colored with inka gold in Turquiz Gold

here is some closer

That's all from me, I hope  I've inspired you to try out make something different
All the product I used , you will find at Lulupu Craft Store

There is still time to submit your wonderful project and we can't wait to see your work!

Have a great days, Happy crafting !
