Once upon a time… a Mixed Media Canvas with Olga Bielska

Hello Lindy’s fans! Olga Bielska here with you today and I’m going to show you how I made this perfectly purple mixed media canvas and then added sparkling color using Starbursts and Embossing Powder from Lindy’s.

I’ve created a step-by-step video so you can see what is needed to create this for yourself.

Basic Process

I started by applying modelling paste through a stencil. When this dried, I used the sprays: Dark Chocolate Truffle ShimmerWitch’s Potion Purple Shimmer and  Sweet Violet Purple Teal Shimmer to add color.

After drying, I applied more modelling paste through a stencil and then I added Silver Moon Mistletoe Embossing Powder to the wet paste. To make the background more interesting I added a few stamps.

I sprayed the cutouts with Lindy’s sprays, then I gave the embellishments a coat of black gesso and a little bit white gesso.  I glued down all the embellishments and flowers.

The next step was to mix modelling paste with art stones and apply it and then I added some glitter and micro-spheres.
I used embossing powder on a chipboard title and then I glued that inscription onto the canvas.

At the end I used a bit of wax paste to finish my work and add highlights, it looks amazing against the sparkly Lindy’s products.
