Live Life Mixed Media Canvas

Hey, my friends, can't believe Fall is officially here. Hope you all enjoy the cool weather. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we'd love to see you to finish off a project with a stamp. This is also a perfect way to end our STAMPtember celebration!

I was inspired to create a mixed media canvas with some stamping as a final touch.
There are some certain color schemes that I love to have on my projects. To create a mixed media canvas with a different color combo this week, I tried Tim Holtz Distress Paint Ever Green Bough.
As usual, I prepared this canvas with Gesso. To create the texture on the background I pasted a piece of embossed paper after blending the Distress inks on it.  
Tim Holtz metal embellishments were colored and attached on the canvas.
Some texture was made with stencils and modeling paste. I also added some rub on sticker to create more interest.
After attaching some Tim Holtz and Prima Flowers embellishments, I stamped the Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps Cracks & Specks as the final touch and I love the beautiful crackled effect.

I hope you like my mixed media canvas and got inspired to create something with a stamp to finish off it.

Join us this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge since Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $50 gift voucher. You might also be on our Friday Designer Spotlight!

And one more thing I'd like to share - I am so happy that recently I remodel and reorganize my craft room.

Here is my craft room tour video before organizing if you are interested. Hopefully I could share the after organizing video soon. I really appreciate you stop by my blog and hope you all have a wonderful day!
