Having fun playing with mixed media

Hi guys, I'm just back off my hols but thought I'd show you a canvas i did before I went away, just because I was in the mood to play!!!! lol

I painted my canvas first with white gesso, 

I then added some stenciling made with a mask and grunge paste, then sprayed the base with some of the fabulous sprays from Lindys stamp gang, I have just found these, yer I know where have I been! duh!! just love the vibrant colours!!!
The branch!! effect was made by first layering down some cheesecloth, on top of this I added some real twigs from the garden, which i found last year and kept in an airtight tin, don't know if they needed an airtight tin but they got one anyway, he he
When set I started adding some art stones and mini art stones by Finnabair then some micro beads too in bronze,
I stamped my  IO owl image using distress ink then layered it up using some papers from my stash,
this I placed on top of some natural fibres again in my stash,
On the branch I then added some fir cones and berries,

Too finish it off I added yet more spray, this time dabbed on from the tube inside the spray so the ink would run to add more effect too,

Have a go at mixed media if you haven't already, it's great fun!!
happy Crafting!!!
Hugs Liz xx

Brilliant canvas and love the design. I find it quite liberating to do a canvas. No restrictions or theme to follow. Hugs, Carol S.xx
