Mixed Media Wall Hanging Nautical

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Mini Canvas Nautical Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz
Hello, my lovely friends, I am so happy you are back. This week, our theme at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is "NAUTICAL". I was inspired to create a mixed media wall hanging using Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain on the background and decorated it with my favorite sea creatures using Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp Mini Prints.

This wall hanging was made of four 3" X 3" mini canvases. I started this project with applying modeling paste on the canvases using a palette knife. Then I sprayed Distress Spray Stain on these canvases with random shades.

I stamped four sea creature blue prints on the watercolor paper that was already colored with Distress Spray Stain and water mixture. Then I stamped these sea creatures again to cut and pasted on the previous stamped blue prints using foam tabs to create dimensional effect.

The sentiments were added using Tim Holtz Big Chat stickers. The metal heart and tiny bottle were embellished on the canvases.

I distressed the edges of the canvases using blue and black Faber Castell Big Brush Pens. The final step was splattered some Gesso and water mixture on the canvas. 

I really enjoyed to create this wall hanging with these vibrant colors and the cute sea creature images. Hope you will join us and make your NAUTICAL project. I can't wait to see what you create!

I die cut this size 8 tag using Tim Holtz Sizzix Tag Die and Big Shot Machine with watercolor paper. The background was colored using Distress Oxide Reinker and water mixture with a Water Brush. I stamped the heart image, colored it using Zig Glitter Marker.
