Mixed Media Sunday Share


I've been working on some mixed media canvas' and this is one I thought I would share with you today.  I used the typical supplies like paint, both acrylic and watercolor, gesso and mat gel medium and some random bits of scrap paper and permanent markers.  Some of the not so typical items are from things around the house,  the stars (cereal box) shapes covered in tin foil then painted with gesso and sprayed through a piece of shelf liner.  I also was able to emboss the tin foil with some fun swirls and marks, they don't lay completely flat so they also add a bit of dimension.


The glow circles around the stars are a combination of the end of a paper towel roll and a soda bottle cap.


My houses are constructed from some of the postage I have been saving from this seasons wedding, graduation and baby shower invitations.  They all had pretty stamps.

This is a new type of art for me and I have been having a lot of fun with it.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look.  I'll talk to you again soon.  I'm going to link up with a couple of challenges I found that looked like fun.  Check out their sites here:  One little word and Mixed Media Monthly Challenge.
