Be You. Mixed Media Canvas

Hi everyone. I have something a little different to share today. 

I have been slowly getting into mixed media.... well last night I dived right in. I am HOOKED!! I have been so intimidated by sprays and inks and different mediums. I also have been drooling over some gorgeous mixed media canvas's I have seen lately. 

I was watching Limor's ustream and as always she totally inspired me to make my own. 

I was also inspired by Luvlee Scrappin She has fabulous start to finish canvas videos.

I used a district market canvas to start. I figured if anything the background on it already is nice to if I got scared I could just use minimal inks.... I also used Prima masks and molding paste. Computer parts, Manor House Flowers.... Leaky Shed chipboard. canvas resist peices.... I used so much goodies on here. I then went over it all with Gesso. Then I began spraying..... I started on the outside first with the darkest color and worked my way inward and then adding some yellow and blue. 

I love how it turned out. I made it for my son.... He was so amazed when he saw it and asked if he can hang it in his room..... how sweet right?? 

Thank you for stopping by.
