Mixed Media Canvas - Remember Adventure


Hi, there, my dear crafty friends, how's your week?
At Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week, our theme is "J is for..." - July, Journey, Jump rings, jewel tones, and journaling. We are challenging you to be inspired by the letter J somehow. From jewels to jade ink - there are so many possibilities. Don't forget to tell us how you've been inspired by the letter J.

I created this canvas wall decor for Natalie to remeber her end of school year party in June.

J is for June - Natalie graduated from elementary school this June and we held an end of school year party for her. I was inspired to create this canvas wall decor for her to remember all the great time she had with her friends at the party and in those years of elemenetary school. Here is the photo that children were playing water and having fun. I love all the colors, sunshine and laughter.


To start this project, I connected four 4" X  4" canvas with Heavy Structure Gel. The canvases were covered with Gesso and a thin layer of modeling paste after the Gesso was dry.


Those scratch tools were used to create the wavy patterns on the Modeling Pasted on each canvas. I colored those canvases with different shades of Color Shine and distressed them with ColorBox Ink Pad around the edges.



Add sentiments with Tim Holtz Alpha Parts that were colored with Gesso and Distress paints.









Supply List:

  15. I love your chunky canvases - and how the waves travel across all of them, even though the colours change. Brilliant nautical images and the white accents are so cool!
