Mixed Media Canvas Smile

newchallenge sssm

Hello, lovely friends! Let's play the new challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. "With all of the background stamps, stencils and paints out there patterned papers have been taking a back seat, especially in the word of mixed media, so we thought it was about time we included them in our projects!" Yes, join us and use patterned papers in your project!

I was inspired to use patterned papers on my mixed media canvas and, experimented the modeling paste to create some random textures. I really had fun to create this colorful piece.

Patterned papers are so fun and easy to use when creating mixed media projects. On this mixed media canvas, I pasted Tim Holtz Paper Stash patterned paper.

After adding the modeling paste for texture, I colored the background with Distress Paints, and distressed them with Art Dauber.

The butterflies were cut out from the same paper stash. There were Prima Flowers adhered using gel medium.

I added some Tim Holtz stickers, and die cut a sentiment SMILE to decorate the canvas.
