November Day - Mixed Media Canvas

This week the challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is a simple one – use ink! Whether it is ink spray or an ink pad, an ink refiller or maybe some India Ink pens – we want to see how you use ink this week on your crafting project.

I was inspired by the change of the seasons and created this mixed media canvas using Clearsnap Smooch Glitz ink and Smooch Spritz ink. 
I love the cool crisp air and the gorgeous colors of leaves because autumn is one of my favorite seasons.

To start this project, I punched out lots of leaves with various fall colors, and applied crackle paint on all leaves to make textures. Using ColorBox Pigment ink pad to distress the edges of the leaves.


To prepare the background of the canvas, I applied a layer of Gesso on and covered it with a piece of  tissue paper with wrinkles. After it was dry,  the distress stain and the Gelatos were applied directly on the textured background. 


The sentiment was cut out from the Tim Holtz Seasonal paper pad and pasted with foam squares to make the dimension.  

Now, here is the most fun part, on this canvas, I used Smooch Gold Rush Glitz Sparkle Accent Ink and Smooch Spritz Pearlized Accent Ink Spray to create the autumn themed color scheme. The Smooch Accent Ink is great for details and layering on the embellishments with the easy to use applicator. 
  
And the Smooch Spritz Ink Spray is perfect for creating the shimmering background.
I love these beautiful colors they've added on this autumn themed project.

  4. Hello Meihsia,
    This is a fabulous mixed media piece, love the texture you have created for the Bg. One would not think that the hard gear elements would juxtapose with the soft earthiness of the leaves, but it does work.
