Mixed Media Canvs - Road Trip

Hey, friends, I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.  With the holidays approaching, now is the time to get ready for travel. This week,  Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge want to see your creations inspired by TRANSPORTATION. Trains, planes, automobiles, and even a boat – how are you getting around these days? Whether inspired by the metal and gears, intrigued and wanting to create a steampunk jalopy, or perhaps wishing someone a bon voyage.

Our family loves road trips so I created this mixed media canvas to display with the souvenirs that we got during our trips.

To prepare the caves, I applied a layer of Gesso on the background. The texture on the edges of this canvas was made using Tim Holtz Layering Stencil and Modeling Paste.  I pasted some Tim Holtz plastic letters to create the sentiment.

Prima Flowers mail box embellishments and the road sign were attached using heavy structure gel.

I embossed the tag with Tim Holtz Embossing Folders and distressed it with Distress Inks. The image was stamped using Simon Says Stamp Road Trip and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

As a final touch, I randomly dabbed Distress Paint on the edges of this canvas. 

Supply List:
