Step by Step Mixed Media Canvas Tutorial by Marilyn Rivera

Hello everyone! My Creative Scrapbook design team member Marilyn Rivera is treating you today to a step by step canvas tutorial featuring our July Mixed Media kit!

Here's Marilyn:

Hello everyone!! Marilyn here to show you a step by step how I did this canvas with the July Mixed Media kit. I had a lot of fun working with this kit!  Let's get started!!

I'm working in this canvas with the heart canvas album from Maya Road, Melisa Frances's jar, Glitz stamp, tissue paper and embellishments from Mixed Media kit.

I worked with a 11" x 16" canvas and covered it with the tissue paper from the kit. I used Mod Podge to glue the tissue paper.

Here's the canvas covered with the tissue paper, then I gave an extra coat with Mod Podge.

Then apply gesso to all the canvas.

With a wipe eliminate the excess of gesso.

I put apart the hearts and made this design and then with a pencil mark around it.

With a mask and molding paste I gave texture around the hearts.

Continue doing this around all the design (hearts).

Then apply gesso to the canvas hearts, don't cover it all with gesso.

When they are dry, apply paint. First, I painted  with Sage color and then with pink color.

Using the Glitz stamp from the kit, start to stamp in some areas of the canvas.

Stamp in the canvas hearts, too.

Take the canvas heart like pattern and cut four mat for them 1/4" largest.  I used the paper from the July Limited Edition kit and glue them in the canvas like the photo.

I sew around each of the heart and next I tied two hearts by the rings with a twine from my stuff.

Then tie the two other hearts and glue them in the mats.

The Mixed Media kit comes with this beautiful yellow flower that I painted in pink .  I also painted another flower from the Limited edition kit for my canvas.

Now it's time to start to decorate and to place my photos.  I handle my photos to the twine with the tiny clothespins from the kit.

I filled the glass bottle with the silver beads from the kit.  

It should look like this...

I covered my design with wax paper and cut the wax paper like my design then my final touch is with the Antique Copper Maya Mist from the kit.

The final result! I hope this inspire you!!
