Hello everyone! Jenn here today sharing a lovely mixed media canvas using lots of mixed media techniques to alter my chipboards and background.

Finnabair Waxes
Finnabair Tissue Paper
Finnabair Art Stones and Mini Art Stones
Finnabair Phoenix Effect Paste
Tim Holtz Rub Ons and Chit Chat Sticker
Lindy’s Sprays

Black Gesso
White Gesso
5X7 Canvas Board
Flourish stencil
White Crackle Paste
Clear Gesso

The 5X7 canvas was prepped with white gesso and allowed to dry.  Once dry I added bits of the printed torn tissue paper with clear gesso . Rub ons and Stamping were also added around where the frame was to be placed. Once all was dry I added spray inks in shades of gold, burgundy and coral drying with a heat tool between the colors. Finally I used white crackle paste through a stencil for more texture and allowed it to cure and crack naturally.While drying I prepped my chipboards by coating them in black gesso. This was done on both sides drying each before the next. Once the gesso was dry I added some various waxes to the frame. All of the pieces were then arranged on my canvas to create my focal point. Once I achieved the look I wanted I adhered everything using a gel medium.

**Tip** Using a gel medium gives you a longer open time and allows you to move items rather than using a hot glue gun which dries faster.
