Mixed Media Canvas with Pastel Colors

This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, from soft shabby chic colors to white washing with gesso, being inspired by Easter to using actual pastels, we challenge you to be inspired by the softer side of the color wheel.

I was inspired to use the soft color scheme on my mixed media canvas.

I always love soft and feminine colors on my projects. After creating textures on the background with  Liquitex Modeling Paste and Prima Flowers Raindrop Stencil, I colored the canvas with Distress Spray Stain and distressed it with Distress Paint.

Some beautiful Prima Flowers were attached using Prima Flowers Heavy Gesso.

All the embellishments were distressed using Art Dauber with ColorBox Ink pad and Distress Mini Ink Pads.

To finish off this project, I applied the Gesso randomly on the background and embellishments to soften the color scheme. 

Supply List:
