Garden Delights Mixed Media Canvas!

Good morning it’s Sherry here with you another day this week!  I’ve had this idea for a project using Garden Delights for some time and finally put it all together yesterday. 


The project started with a 6x6 piece of watercolor paper that was painted with acrylic paints.  Using Spellbinders Butterfly Garden Impressabilities as a stencil, Broken China Distress Ink Refill was misted over a portion of the paper.  In alternating corners a white mist was sprayed using a stencil die cut with Spellbinders Grateful Lattice.  A few acrylic paint splatters were added along with some gold from a gold leafing pen. 

The sentiment was stamped in black pigment ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Before adding anything else to the page, the edges were distressed with a pair of scissors and sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink.

The flowers were made using a stencil die cut from chipboard using Spellbinders Jewel Flowers and Flourishes.  White embossing paste was added in varying heights and thickness and allowed to air dry.  Once dry, they were colored with Distress Inks in Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge, Seedless Preserves and Aged Mahogany.  The stems for the flowers were made using another stencil for a guide – faint pencil lines were drawn and then colored with Marine Green and Spanish Olive alcohol markers.

While working on the page, it struck me that I needed something to mount it on, since it was too big for a card.  I finally decided to mount the page on a 6x6 canvas which was painted black and then some gold accents were added to the edges.  The page was adhered to the canvas with 1.5” double-sided tape.

As the finishing touch, I found some vintage gold buttons in my stash that I used for the flower centers.

That’s it for me today . . . thanks for stopping by and joining me!
