Mixed Media Canvas Bird with Yulianna

Hello Gang! Yulianna Efremova here and I’m so excited to be here and show you another great project as a Lindy’s Master Educator.

For this month’s project, I’m going to show you how to make this Mixed Media Canvas Bird.  I’ve colored this project with Lindy’s, Shakers: Magnolia Magenta Gold, Guten Tag Teal, California Poppy. Embossing powder: Boogie Down Black, Yodeling Yellow, Urban Amethyst to add color to my page. You could create a similar piece with your favorite colors or theme.

I wanted to make it easy for you to make something like this yourself, so I’ve filmed a video so you can see just what to do to make a beautifully textured canvas like this one.

Basic Process

  1. Glue pieces of paper to the canvas
  2. Cover with white primer
  3. Add medical shakers
  4. Apply sticks for embossing powders
  5. Add patterns through the stencil
  6. Add a stamped outline of the bird
  7. Paint with a stamp pad around the edges
  8. Add beads and inscriptions
  9. Add shadows
