Birdie mixed media canvas

I quite liked the idea of creating a canvas that would help to
cover the bare walls in my craft room. Strange for a crafter
to have but yes I have bare walls in my crafting room.

I like the idea of using mixed media and the end result is in
the picture. Starting with a plain white background, I added layers of shapes and lots of tissue paper. Covered the whole
canvas with gesso and then added some spray inks. These inks tattered angels in forest green and cranberry, I added a little pearlised paint and this was the end result. Iused plain white flowers with a couple of pink then covered with gesso and let dry. Once dried I added some colour to the flowers using more inks then added a dry brushed coating of gesso,

Loved making this canvas another on the go too,

Happy crafting all
