Mixed Media Collage “Zipper” by Yulianna Efremova

Hello! Yulianna Efremova here and I’m going to show you how to make a mixed media canvas collage using zippers and Magical shakers from Lindy’s.  I’ll walk you through how to create this step by step.

I used all colors of Magical shaker 10-pack  to create my mixed media canvas.


Steps for Creating your own Mixed Media Canvas

Use a glue gun to add collage elements, zippers and chipboard.

Cover the collage with black gesso, then white gesso.

Then I sprinkled different colors of Magical shakers onto the background, after splashing the background with water

I painted brush circles of lightning, the outer edge of red, light pink center.


To finish, I covered the collage in different colors of wax pastes.

I’ve called my piece “Zipper”!

So you can see exactly what to do, I have filmed a video showing how you can make this step-by-step, you can watch it below or on the Lindy’s YouTube Channel.
