Hi everyone, hope you are having an awesome summer.
I have been meaning to do a mixed media  shabby chic canvas for a while, and here it is.
I bought a 12x12 canvas and reversed it.
I painted all the edges with gesso and started applying loads of texture. I added muslin to all the edges, then lace and kept adding more gesso. When this had dried I added flowers, butterflies, die cut chipboard keys, locks, branches etc and painted all with gesso and fine texture paste. I then sprayed everything in three colours of glimmer mist. I  decorated a 12x12 page with doilies, flowers and funky fibres. I glued this to the centre of the canvas back.
I have entered this in to a challenge at -  using textiles - August challenge.
Also flying unicorn challenge for mixed media, you can find here
Hope you like it.
Bye for now.
