Mixed Media Canvas by Athanasia Papantoniou

 Hello! Athanasia here today to share a small canvas I created with the June 2015 Limited Edition Spray Set.DSC06417a

To create this mixed media background, first I made a collage with papers, applied some light paste with a stencil, and then I glued everything down. After that, I used the sprays with a paint brush, and spread the colors here and there… I also used the sprays to paint the flowers.

I altered the chipboard pieces with the Shabby Turbine Teal spray and the Obviously Black and Midnight Bronze embossing powders, and some bronze mica flakes.

I also used the embossing powders on the background with a stamp, to create more texture, and give more interest. I really love the result! One more thing I did with the embossing powders, was to create this beautiful butterfly. I stamped twice the butterfly on rice paper, spread the embossing powder, and heat it. Then I cut it around with a scissors, and painted it with the Shabby Turbine Teal spray.

Thank you for visiting!
Have a lovely crafty time 🙂
