Sneak peek - mixed media and wor Sheena :-)

Well, afternoon all!

What a difference a day makes - gone are yesterday's blue skies and grey and rainy is the order of the day. Hey ho at least there is no excuse for not getting on with the cards for the craft fair on Saturday.

If you live locally the Spring Craft Fair is at Holy Cross Church Hall, Adela Avenue Motspur Park from 2 - 5 p.m.  I have been before as a supporter and spent far to much money  with the talented folks who were there then.

But, onto the main purpose of this post - to share a mixed media canvas  made with Sheena's Paint Fusion Stamps and the Pebeo Acrylics and Mediums.

The whole canvas
 The background was stippled and then the lilacs done with the heavy body white and the colour pounced in with the end of a palette knife. The lilac leaves were painted paint fusion style. The bark is more mat texture medium and Pebeo gilding was with a wash.  The ivy is moulded using the PF stamp and half and half heavy body white and matt medium. The bird and swirls are a stencil.

Close up of lilac
 Finally for those not interested in canvases the paints work brilliantly on cards too. A simple strip of colours topped with Sheena's paint fusion poppy stamp that has been embossed in black onto white card!

If you have enjoyed these please pop along to my fellow design team members who have some amazing and different samples to share
