Mixed Media Canvas Love Valentine

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Mini Canvas Love Valentines Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Tim Holtz Prima Flowers

Welcome back for the new challenge, my dear blog friends. This week, let's share your favorite tool with us. At Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our challenge theme is "YOUR FAVORITE TOOL". I created a mixed media canvas with my all time favorite tools:  Faber Castell Gelatos Tool Set for creating the background texture, and Clearsnap Art Daubers for distressing.

I've used the Faber-Castell Gelatos Tool Set for years and still love all the tools in this set. To create the texture on the background of this mini canvas, I used the palette knife to apply Modeling Paste over Tim Holtz Layering Stencil. The Dot Dabbers and Blending Chisel in this set are great to distress some small areas like the embellishments and the edges of the canvas. I also love to use Clearsnap Art Dauber to make the distress effect.

The Stipple Brush is the best tool to create the splatters. On my canvas, I simply loaded the brush with Gesso and water mixture and flicked it across my index finger to create this effect. I also use Drip Dropper in this tool set to make the paint splatter.
