Canvas with Special times stamp set

Hello everyone.
It’s time for a new challenge over at We Love 2 Create challenge blog. This month I’ve created a mixed media canvas. I also did a step-by-step video, that you can find down here.

I started by adding modeling paste through the number collage stencil. Then I painted the canvas with white gesso. When it was all dried, I colored it with ink sprays. I used blue, green and yellow colors.

Next, I stamped the girl from the Special times stamp set and colored her with Copics alcohol markers. The list of pens I used, can you find further down. I cut her out and adhered her to the canvas.

Next, I started to decorate the canvas. I added paper flowers, broken paint brushes, resin stars and flower pot stones. I also did a mixture of gel medium and art stones. The mixture, I added here and there. Next, I dry brushed the textured parts with white gesso. Finally, I added a title from the Sentimentals paper pack to the canvas. I colored it in first with Distress ink.

I hope you enjoyed my creation. I love how it all came together beautifully. I love it all! Or what do you think?

Have a crafty day!
